    Donald Trump and the Republican National Committee have finalized an agreement that will allow individual donors to contribute nearly half a million dollars each toward electing the presumptive nominee and other down-ballot Republicans this fall, NBC News reported. 

    The agreement, announced late Tuesday night by both the Trump campaign and the RNC, sets up two joint fundraising committees—the Trump Make America Great Again Committee and the Trump Victory Fund.

    The agreement cements a shift in campaign strategy that's been in the works for weeks, as Trump adopts more traditional campaign tactics with an eye toward the general election.

    The deal must still be ratified by the participating states and that could still take several days, sources tell NBC News.
