Trump eyes economy as he seeks to shift course after turbulent week

Republican U.S. Presidential nominee Donald Trump attends a campaign event at the Ocean Center in Daytona Beach, FloridaBy Susan Heavey WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Republican Donald Trump announced plans to address economic issues and backed off a claim that he had seen a video of cash being delivered to Iran on Friday, in signs he wants to steer away from controversial comments and get his White House campaign back on message. Trump said he had created an economic advisory team and would release his plan to boost the U.S. economy in a speech on Monday. Trump also said he had not seen a video carrying cash to Iran, as he had repeatedly said earlier this week, but rather had seen a clip showing a plane carrying some of five Americans who were freed from Iran in January.
