Republican Donald Trump's presidential campaign reportedly canceled more than $1.6 million in ads slated for next week, most of them in Florida and Ohio, which are key battleground states.

But Trump senior communications advisor Jason Miller on Friday took to Twitter and seemed to suggest the movement doesn't mean a decline in advertising by the campaign; rather it shows a ramp-up leading to Election Day:

Maggie Haberman of the New York Times, citing two sources, on Friday tweeted that the ad money "is being plowed back into states to increase the buys, but not apparently for next week's reservations."

The Trump campaign on Friday didn't immediately reply to TheBlaze's request for comment on the matter.
