Donald Trump’s campaign manager on Wednesday said Mr. Trump is keeping a more active campaign schedule than his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and that the GOP nominee can do “all of the above,” as he prepares to spend part of his day at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at his new Washington, D.C., hotel.

“He’s doing all the the above … 12 stops in Florida over the last two and a half days,” Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conwaysaid on NBC’s “Today” program.

Ms. Conway cited a Bloomberg poll out Wednesday that showed Mr. Trump leading Mrs. Clinton in Florida, even though he’s getting outspent there.

“He’s making a pit stop here in Washington, and his under budget, ahead-of-schedule hotel is really remarkable,” she said. “It shows Americans the tangible accomplishments of Donald Trump.”

“He’s somebody who builds things; he’s somebody who fixes things,” she said.

“Respectfully, Hillary Clinton has time to go to an Adele concert and everybody thinks that’s really cool,” she said. “Donald Trump stops off to unveil just an incredible, stunning piece of architecture — new hotel, first-class hotel — and everybody’s hair is on fire.”

Ms. Conway said there weren’t many probing questions when Mrs. Clinton took a break from the public campaign trail to prepare for a debate.

“I mean, Hillary Clinton took five days off to prepare for one debate and everybody looked at that as some sort of noble exercise with 23 days to go,” she said. “Nobody covered that as ‘where is she? Why doesn’t she campaign much? What is she doing? Where is she hiding?’ “

“This man, in public view, will be with his family — true family business here, an amazing accomplishment for a couple of hours, and everybody is questioning it,” Ms. Conway said. “He has been in Florida for two and a half days — 12 stops in the state of Florida.”

“Today, we’ll go on to North Carolina; tomorrow, Ohio; and then we’ll be in New Hampshire, Maine,” she said. “So he’s got the most active campaign schedule of the two candidates by far.”

“And by the way, she’s got all these super surrogates like both Obamas and a former President Clinton,” Ms. Conway said. “He’s doing this virtually on his own.”

GOP vice presidential nominee Mike Pence, meanwhile, is scheduled to spend part of his Wednesday campaigning in Utah, a state that 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney won with more than 70 percent of the vote and one that hasn’t gone Democratic in a presidential election since the 1960s.
