ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump released his first television campaign ad on Friday (August 19), entitled "Two Americas: Immigration." Trailing Clinton in national opinion polls, Trump has tried to reset his campaign, announcing on Wednesday a shake-up of his senior campaign staff for the second time in less than two months. In the past week, he has abandoned his free-wheeling style of campaigning, instead using a teleprompter at every rally. Trump also began adding non-rally events to his campaign schedule, visiting a police lodge on Thursday afternoon and hosting a roundtable on Wednesday morning. Previously, Trump had eschewed such events that historically comprise a significant portion of a candidate's time. The campaign will put two ads on the air in five states this week. Trump will also continue a series of policy-focused speeches after giving speeches in the past two weeks on jobs, national security and law and order.
