Hillary Clinton's campaign battle strategy is aiming to undercut Donald Trump in key swing states — where he's trying to rally working-class, white voters — and by branding him as unfit for the White House, the Wall Street Journal reports.

According to the Journal, Clinton hits the campaign trail with a bus trip through the electoral battlegrounds of Pennsylvania and Ohio to counter Trump's push to build an Electoral College majority in the Rust Belt and other "slowly diversifying states."

"He's trying to put this together primarily among white voters," David Axelrod, a former Obama White House and campaign adviser, tells the Journal.

She'll also head to Omaha in red-state Nebraska on Monday, where candidates can pick up Electoral College votes by winning specific congressional districts, the Journal reports, and where President Barack Obama picked up one electoral vote in 2008 by winning the district that includes Omaha.

In addition, Team Clinton is hoping to retake North Carolina, a state Obama won in 2008 but lost in 2012, the Journal reports. Utah may even be in play — Trump riled voters there last March by questioning if Mitt Romney was really a Mormon

The second prong of the battle plan aims to hammer Trump for being too "temperamentally unstable to be be trusted with the nuclear codes," the Journal reports.

"We can't put him in the Oval Office," Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta said earlier this week. "That's the core of our strategy. And it's the core of what we need to do … to build the 270 electoral votes" needed to win.
