GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump says he has no plans to change his style, even though he continues to trail scandal-plagued Hillary Clinton in the polls.

"Everyone talks about, 'Oh, well, you're going to pivot, you're going to,'" the Republican nominee said. "I don't want to pivot. I mean, you have to be you. If you start pivoting, you're not being honest with people."

However, Trump's new language and style look to some like a "pivot." He's been using new language to talk about issues and how he would lead as president.

The campaign announced a major reshuffling in the appointment of Stephen Bannon, head of Breitbart News, as chief executive of the campaign. Also, Kellyanne Conway, a Republican pollster and friend of Trump, has been named campaign manager. Paul Manafort will remain campaign chairman, but there are reports his role has been diminished.

Meanwhile, polls continue to show Trump's methods do not appeal to a majority of Americans, with Clinton leading nationally and in key battleground states.

Even so, the Clinton campaign has issues of its own.

The House Oversight Committee is now reviewing FBI documents related to the investigation of her email server and laying out a case that Clinton committed perjury during congressional testimony last year.
