Trump shakes up staff, intent on finishing race on own terms

Roland Mccarthy | 19 August, 2016, 00:14

While Trump's campaign staff publicly insists there is plenty of time left for the Republican to change the trajectory of the race, the candidate is facing a shrinking timeline.

The Breitbart website's founder, the late Andrew Breitbart, once admiringly described Bannon as the Leni Riefenstahl of the Tea Party movement, according to a Bloomberg Businessweek profile of Bannon.

This development underscores how closely Breitbart, the most-read conservative news website in the United States, has aligned itself with the billionaire real estate mogul. This is considered as the second significant shake-up of Trump's campaign.

Steeped in what political pros call analytics - the art and science of discovering and interpreting the public mood - Conway branched out on her own as owner of The Polling Company.

She is the kind of numbers-cruncher who rarely cites statistics but has a knack for explaining what they mean in plain language, and so is frequent guest on cable television. While Trump held a handful of meetings with Washington Republicans and fulfilled requests from GOP leaders to raise campaign cash, he's continued to rankle lawmakers with his numerous controversies.

A Trump campaign statement announcing the changes touted a Bloomberg Politics article that branded Bannon "the most unsafe political operative in America".

"I am who I am".

"Everyone talks about, 'Oh, well you're going to pivot, you're going to.' I don't want to pivot".

Over the last month, Ayotte, who is facing a tough reelection battle this fall, stood by the combative GOP presidential nominee despite his attacks on the Gold Star parents of a fallen USA soldier, his suggestion that "2nd Amendment people" could stop Hillary Clinton from choosing Supreme Court justices and even his initial refusal to endorse Ayotte herself following her critiques of some of his statements.

The media prefers that Trump run a "gentlemanly" campaign as did Romney, McCain, and Dole, all of whom lost.

Bringing Bannon overseas "reinforces the outsider image Trump has cultivated with voters", argued Ron Bonjean, a former Republican congressional leadership aide. Although it is a risky strategy, many argue that's what allowed him to win the GOP primaries.

Trump vented his frustration during a weekend fundraiser in the Hamptons.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Weary Republican leaders are accepting Donald Trump's latest staff shake-up, hopeful that a new leadership team can reverse the NY businessman's struggles even as some worry it's too little too late.

Kellyanne Conway speaks during an interview on Bloomberg TV in NY on July 5, 2016.

Manafort said he would continue to focus on "the big picture, long-range campaign vision". Yiannopoulos has a huge and devoted online following and refers to Donald Trump as "Daddy". A demographic Trump needs to win the 2016 election. He is losing to Hillary Clinton in national polls. Trump being Trump is precisely what led him to this crisis point.

While building Trump's political team into a functioning campaign, Manafort was brought on to try to steady Trump and turn him into a more polished, disciplined candidate.

The new appointments come ahead of the Trump team's first major TV advertisements, due to start this week. Bannon has been on the outs with the traditional wing of the GOP for a while, as Breitbart has become more of an extremist, hate-promoting site, but his rise to become Trump's "CEO" has Republicans absolutely panicked.

She praised him as a "highly effective, brilliant tactician who gets things done". Instead, Bannon has been telling Trump to run more fully as an outsider and an unabashed nationalist.

Let's elevate our political discourse shall we? "I am committed to doing whatever it takes to win this election, and ultimately become President because our country can not afford four more years of the failed Obama-Clinton policies which have endangered our financial and physical security".
