Trump's new campaign bosses send a message: Let Trump be Trump, again

0

Donald Trump's new campaign executives might as well change his slogan to "Make Trump Trump again."

Trump's first campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, made "let Trump be Trump" his guiding principle. He was replaced by Paul Manafort, who focused on trying to make Trump appeal more to top Republicans -- which meant more teleprompters and an attempt at restraint.


But now, The Washington Post reports, Manafort is no longer in charge (though still part of the campaign), and new chief executive Stephen Bannon wants to see more of the "old Trump."

This could mean more belittling nicknames, like this one from Trump's Twitter.

Breitbart officially on board

Bannon, the new campaign executive, runs the conservative Breitbart News website. He has encouraged Trump to focus on running as an outsider -- forget trying to win over the Republican establishment. Sources told the Post Trump has agreed with Bannon's philosophy. 

"I'm bringing on fantastic people who know how to win and love to win," Trump told The Wall Street Journal (paywall).

I don't want to pivot. I mean you have to be you. If you start pivoting, you are not being honest with people.

Kellyanne Conway is also taking on a leadership role. She worked on Newt Gingrich's 2012 campaign (which did not end well) and with Trump's vice presidential nominee,  Mike Pence
