He made the comments while talking to a crowd of supporters in Charlotte, North Carolina. The remarks come just one day after the New York businessman overhauled his presidential campaign team for the second time in less than two months in a bid to reverse poor opinion poll numbers. Trump named Steve Bannon, head of the Breitbart News website, as campaign chief executive officer, a new position. He also promoted senior adviser Kellyanne Conway to the post of campaign manager. It offers Trump's team a chance to return to the "let Trump be Trump" style practiced by former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski that helped Trump, who has never held elective office, win the Republican presidential nomination for the Nov. 8 election. On Thursday, Trump told supporters he especially regretted any comments that caused what he called "personal pain," in an apparent reference to the parents of a Muslim soldier killed in Iraq. Khizr Khan, a U.S. citizen of Pakistani origin and a Muslim, the father of the fallen soldier, criticized Trump at the Democratic National Convention. Trump then became embroiled in a public feud with the Khan family, upsetting Republican leaders, and touching off a slide in his poll numbers.
