Donald Trump’s campaign chairman Paul Manafort resigns



The Republican Candidate Donald Trump’s presidential campaign chairman, Paul Manafort has resigned just two months after taking the helm. Trump confirmed in a statement Friday

“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,”

On Wednesday, Trump overhauled his presidential campaign team, hiring the head of a conservative news website to bolster his combative image and to try to reverse poor opinion poll numbers in the race against Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for the Nov. 8 election.
Manafort has also come under increased scrutiny in recent days over alleged ties with pro-Russian political groups in Ukraine
