Trump Campaign Announces Expanded Role for Top Aide Paul Manafort

Paul Manafort, Donald Trump’s top aide, will be taking on a bigger role in the presumptive nominee’s campaign, NBC News reported.

Manafort will become campaign chairman and chief strategist, signaling a sign of future changes as Trump focuses on the general election.

Manafort joined Trump’s campaign in late March to lead the delegate effort when Trump’s rivals were pushing for a convention fight.

The campaign stressed that Corey Lewandowski will maintain his title as campaign manager and will “continue overseeing day to day operation” and will work with Manafort on political strategy and communications, according to Trump spokesperson Hope Hicks.
