The Republican Party has insisted Donald Trump will be on the ballot in the US election this November, following rumours he would be pushed off the ticket by party insiders.

The party's national committee also stated there would be no name other than Trump's on the ballot.

"Donald Trump is the nominee of the Republican Party full-stop," RNC strategist Sean Spicer told political publication The Hill. "That's the reality. The rest is just a media-pundit concoction."

The assurance came following a week in which several high-profile figures in the party, including Senator John McCain, have distance themselves from comments Trump made about the Muslim family who spoke at the Democrat Convention about their late son who was killed serving in Iraq.

House speaker Paul Ryan, who is openly critical of the Trump ticket, also added his voice to those criticising the comments, adding fuel to the rumours party members were seeking to get Trump off the ballot.

In recent days Trump has also refused to endorse McCain or Ryan in their primary campaigns – something almost unheard of for a presidential candidate, further underlining fractions within the party.

There have also been claims that members of the Republican Party are set to stage an intervention for the candidate before he ruins the election for the GOP, although party members have denied this.

And the Khan argument has showed in the polls, with the latest figures from Fox News putting Trump 10 points behind his Democrat rival Hillary Clinton, just weeks after he was ahead of her in almost every single poll following the Republican National Convention.
