ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told Americans he will speedily address the violence that has dominated headlines, such as the shooting deaths of five Dallas police officers earlier this month. "I have a message for all of you: the crime and violence that today afflicts our nation will soon come to an end," Trump said. The next president takes office on Jan. 20. A series of distractions has largely thwarted a bid by the Trump campaign to show him as a caring father and magnanimous business leader who would bring greater prosperity and safety to the United States. Trump's wife, Melania Trump, made the biggest strides toward that goal. But when it was discovered her remarks repeated lines from a 2008 speech by Michelle Obama, the wife of Democratic President Barack Obama, the uproar lasted for three days.
