Event Date

Donald Trump announced Paul Manafort's resignation from his campaign after Trump had instituted new staffing to "shake things up."  Manafort had recently been under increased scrutiny over his pro-Russian oligarch business dealings in the past.  “This morning Paul Manafort offered, and I accepted, his resignation from the campaign,” Trump said in a statement. “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.”
