BREAKING: Paul Manafort Has Resigned From Trump's Campaign

Paul Manafort has resigned from Donald Trump's campaign. Manafort was promoted to the title of campaign chairman following Corey Lewandowski's dismissal back in April.

The rumor was first reported by the Washington Post's Robert Costa.

Trump then released a statement saying that he had indeed accepted Manafort's resignation.

Earlier this week, the Trump campaign had a "shake up" and hired pollster Kellyanne Conway and Breitbart's Stephen Bannon.
