We have just learned that one of Donald J. Trump’s closest advisers in his presidential campaign has abruptly resigned, just 2 days after two new high-level staffers were brought on to assist.
Paul Manfort has officially resigned as Trump’s campaign chairman, after Kellyann Conway was brought on as the new campaign chair.
Paul Manafort on Friday resigned as Donald Trump’s campaign chairman, after the Republican nominee earlier this week announced a new leadership structure for his campaign.
“This morning Paul Manafort offered, and I accepted, his resignation from the campaign. I am very appreciative for his great work in helping to get us where we are today, and in particular his work guiding us through the delegate and convention process. Paul is a true professional and I wish him the greatest success,” Trump said in a statement.
