Trump campaign chief: Same candidate, 'evolving' campaign

WASHINGTON (AP) — Donald Trump's chief political adviser says "we're evolving the campaign, not the candidate" — adding policy speeches for a front-runner whose style has been heavy on bombast.

Paul Manafort tells "Fox News Sunday" that Trump is paying more attention to the political nuts and bolts — from counting delegates and working with party leaders.

Manafort also contends that his recorded comments at a GOP gathering last week — when he told party leaders Trump was "playing a part" onstage — were taken out of context.

Trump told supporters on Saturday that "being presidential's easy," and that he's got "to rant and rave" at rallies or people "will fall asleep."

Trump said he has no intention of reversing his provocative proposals, including building a wall along the Mexican border.
