Donald Trump insisted early Wednesday that there is “great unity” in his campaign amid reports of strife following a political firestorm encircling the Republican presidential nominee.
“I want to thank everyone for your tremendous support. Beat Crooked H!” Trump wrote in his first tweet of the day.
{mosads}Trump has faced backlash from both sides of the aisle over his feuding with the parents of an American Muslim soldier killed in Iraq.
“I don’t regret anything,” Trump said Monday of his comments on the Khan family.
Responsibilities also shifted among some campaign staff earlier this week after an aide that helped plan the GOP convention last month was fired.
Trump ended the day Monday by refusing to endorse Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) in their respective  primaries. Both Republicans have endorsed Trump but have criticized his comments.
John Harwood, CNBC’s chief Washington correspondent, tweeted that Trump’s campaign chief, Paul Manafort, was “not challenging Trump anymore. Mailing it in. Staff suicidal,” citing an ally of Manafort.
NBC News’s Ali Vitali shared Harwood’s tweet, adding that a Trump campaign source told her that his information was “all true,” adding it was “way worse than people realize.”
Trump senior advisor Jason Miller responded to Harwood publicly, saying “the idea that Paul Manafort is mailing it in is completely erroneous,” pointing to the campaign’s latest fundraising numbers.
