Bernie Sanders says he's not planning to drop out of the race for the Democratic party nomination, after splitting wins in the latest two primaries with Hillary Clinton.

Meanwhile Donald Trump's daughter has backed the way he treats women, and he himself appears to have mended fences with Megyn Kelly of Fox News.

Ms Clinton was a narrow winner in the Democratic party's Kentucky primary, tweeting supporters:

But Mr Sanders won Oregon and despite needing 87 percent of all remaining delegates, told his supporters he'll battle to the bitter end.

"We're going to continue to fight for every last vote until June 14, and then we're going to take our fight to the convention."

That's music to the ears of the Republicans' presumptive nominee, with Mr Trump tweeting:

Mr Trump's daughter Ivanka gave him her support after the New York Times criticised his behaviour towards women, revealing examples of "unwelcome advances, a shrewd reliance on ambition, and unsettling workplace conduct over decades".

"I was bothered by it. Most of the time, when stories are inaccurate, they're not discredited and I will be frustrated by that," Ivanka says.

"But in this case, I think they went too far. They had such a strong thesis and created facts to reinforce it. And there's backlash on it in that regard."

But Mr Trump hasn't helped himself. Nine months ago, his comments towards Fox News' Ms Kelly drew strong condemnation.

In an effort to soften his image Mr Trump has finally met Ms Kelly again and confronting what he called "their little difficulty", Mr Trump said he was a messenger for fans.

"We have an unbelievable bond," he says.

He admits sharing nasty messages on his Twitter account, but says there are much worse ones out there.

"You'd be amazed at the ones I don't retweet," Mr Trump says.

He calls it a "modern way of fighting back".

So for some he's a bully but in Mr Trump's own words, he's a "counterpuncher".
