ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump campaigned in Valley Forge, Pennsylvania on Tuesday (November 1) to discuss his plans for healthcare in the country. Before Trump took the stage, his running mate Mike Pence compared Obamacare to a smartphone catching on fire. "We're going to pull it off the market so it stops burning up our wallets," said Pence about Obamacare. "Here in Pennsylvania, premiums are going to increase more than 60 percent... that means parents won't have enough money to pay their bills or get medicine for their kids," said Trump. Trump has repeatedly promised to repeal and replace the healthcare law as soon as he takes office. The U.S. government has recently said the average premium for insurance plans sold on Healthcare.gov for 2017 rose by 25 percent compared with 2016. Opinion polls now shows Clinton's lead over Trump has narrowed slightly since early last week. It is not yet known if the email controversy will hurt her support. Millions of Americans have already cast their ballot in early voting. Clinton holds a 5 point lead over Trump in the latest Reuters/Ipsos poll, receiving 44 percent of likely voters compared to Trump at 39 percent.
