WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump is reassuring his supporters that, despite a tumultuous week, his campaign "has never been more united."

At a rally in Daytona Beach, Florida, Trump said "the campaign is doing really well."

 "I would say right now it's the best we've been in terms of being united," he said.

Trump has rattled many Republicans with his moves in recent days. He has escalated his feud with the family of a Muslim-American soldier killed in Iraq. He refused to endorse House Speaker Paul Ryan and Sen. John McCain. And he suggested that the general election could be "rigged."

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus is among a handful of high-profile Republicans considering whether to confront Trump about his approach to his presidential campaign.

That's according to a Republican official with direct knowledge of Priebus' plans, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal party strategy.
