    Most installers undercut the door facing and jam to the thickness of the flooring and slip it under. You can find examples on YouTube if you check.

    I would use an oscillating saw (multi-tool) …they are great for many projects.

    For the flooring

    Lay a piece of your laminate down next to the casing ….the saw blade rests on the laminate for a nice even fit.

    Listen to Spock. I can't add anything. You can use a hand saw to cut off the bottom half inch+  It is way easier than trying to cut tile to match the wall and around the casings/jambs.  Next month you may want to change the casings for the latest style. but now you have carved up the tile so it SHOWS under the slimmer casing look.(I mean I don't know what is coming down the pipe but who knows.

    the usual professional installer uses a wood cut off wheel [saw blade] is a 4.5 inch angle grinder to trim the bottom edge of the door casing off and then slides the flooring under it -- thus, at that point, the fit isn't critical because no one will ever be able to see it.  - grampa
