Orlando, Aug 12: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump on Thursday (Aug 11) acknowledged that his campaign is facing challenges and could fail to make the cut.
The real-estate tycoon's humility was visible when he sought support at a gathering of the evangelical ministers, saying he was facing "tremendous" problem in Utah. He also said that his lack of political correctness could cost him this year's election if the people of the country found his direct approach objectionable.
Trump, who had a dream run in the primary season this election as he defeated 16 competitors, is witnessing a challenge of late, particularly after his ugly spat with the parents of a fallen Muslim American soldier.
Trump has increasingly found himself in the corner with his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton widening her lead over him in the national polls and even the former's fellow Republicans refusing to back their own party's candidate.
Even a former CIA chief launched his independent presidential campaign as a conservative alternative to Trump.
