Trump Campaign Overhaul, Hires Two New Top Execs

Posted: Aug 17, 2016 8:15 AM

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump changed things up Wednesday morning by bringing in two new leadership figures to help guide his campaign into November.

Trump hired Breitbart News Chairman Stephen Bannon to be the campaign’s chief executive, and Republican pollster Kellyanne Conway to be campaign manager.

Trump says that Bannon and Conway are “extremely capable, highly qualified people who love to win and know how to win.” 

“I believe we’re adding some of the best talents in politics, with the experience and expertise needed to defeat Hillary Clinton in November and continue to share my message and vision to Make America Great Again,” he added in the statement.

“I am committed to doing whatever it takes to win this election, and ultimately become President because our country cannot afford four more years of the failed Obama-Clinton policies which have endangered out financial and physical security.”
