Trump, best in scripted moments

Posted: Updated:
(AP) -

Donald Trump's friends and even his foes agree that he's at his best in scripted moments -- such as when he speaks with the aid of a teleprompter.

But Trump's frequent unscripted moments are often drowning them out, diverting attention from his economic message and alienating women and minorities with early voting already underway in some states.

His speech Friday night in Michigan was the latest example of Trump's sharpened focus on the economy and on Hillary Clinton's shortcomings.

But earlier this week he fueled a political firestorm by attacking a former Miss Universe, first seizing on her weight and then calling on the world to view her "sex tape."
