Republican Donald Trump will declare an end to nation building if elected president, replacing it with what aides described as "foreign policy realism" focused on destroying the Islamic State group and other terrorist organizations.

The Republican presidential nominee will deliver a speech in Ohio Monday laying out his vision.

He'll argue the country needs to work with anyone that shares that mission, regardless of other disagreements.

Trump is also expected to propose a new immigration policy under which the U.S. would stop issuing visas in cases where adequate screenings can't be performed.

And he's expected to propose creating a new, ideological test for admission to the country that would assess a candidate's stances on issues like religious freedom.

He'll also say that Trump's erratic rhetoric and "bluster" will make Pennsylvanians and all Americans less safe.

Biden's office says he'll praise Clinton as offering solutions for the middle class on jobs and education. He'll also cast Clinton as key to building on the Obama administration's legacy.

Hillary Clinton's campaign is launching a new effort to tap into the political power of young, undocumented immigrants.

She's hoping to capitalize on Donald Trump's promises to deport them.

Clinton's national voter registration program is being launched on the four year anniversary of President Barack Obama's 2012 executive order that temporarily shielded some young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.

Organizers will remind voters that a Trump presidency would end that program, according to the campaign. It's already at risk after a deadlocked Supreme Court decision in June.

The 730,000 young people known as DREAMERs are prohibited from voting but they've helped mobilize many Latinos who can.

The program is part of an effort by Clinton to woo the record 27.3 million Latinos eligible to vote in 2016.

Donald Trump's campaign is on a tear against the media just as his GOP backers are urging him " again " to focus his attacks on his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.

Trump's campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, on Sunday blamed news organizations for the GOP nominee's difficult week, saying the press focused on a pair of Trump comments for days rather than doing more stories about the economic plan Trump announced.

Dominating news last week were Trump's remark that Second Amendment backers could "do something" if Hillary Clinton is elected president and appoints liberal judges. He also insisted on a plain falsehood, that President Barack Obama "founded" the Islamic State group, multiple times.

Trump went on a Twitter rant against the press, complaining that the "disgusting" media is not showing the crowd size of his rallies and is putting "false meaning into the words I say." He also called a New York Times story Sunday about his struggling campaign "fiction."

Donald Trump's running mate, Mike Pence, says the Republican presidential candidate will offer "real specifics" this week on how make the country safer.

Pence declined to preview Trump's plan in an interview on "Fox News Sunday," saying only that Trump will offer a "change of direction" in counterterrorism policies.

Trump has called President Barack Obama the "founder" of the Islamic State group. Pence says Trump was trying to make the point that Obama is to blame for the group's rise in power.

Pence also brushed off a recent letter from the nation's top national security experts, all Republicans, who say Trump can't be trusted as president. He said he understands that "people in the establishment" may have "anxiety about the clear-eyed leadership" Trump will bring.
