New Trump Campaign Manager Kellyanne Conway: This Isn’t A Shakeup

Wednesday on Fox News Channel’s “America’s Newsroom,” new campaign manager to Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump Kellyanne Conway said the changes in Trump’s staff are not a shake-up, just an attempt to “expand the senior team that allows us to meet the needs.”

Conway said, “There is so many responsibilities. So much between now and election day, over the next 12 weeks. We’re trying to expand the senior team that allows us to meet the needs. We want to deny Hillary Clinton the oval office and make good on our promise to millions and millions of Americans who have expressed their support for Donald Trump in the primaries and also in the general. And we also are going to be coordinating with our state directors, with folks on the ground. We’re beefing up our field operations, our data operation. And we feel really good about expanding this team.  Some are calling it a shake-up. It is really not. It doesn’t feel that way.”

She added, “We just need to sort of beef up the senior level roles in a way that we are, dividing and conquering. There is great deal to do. I think Paul Manafort as chairman and Rick Gates as deputy have done a phenomenal job building our campaign over last five or six months to put it in a competitive place going into the fall. So I look forward to continuing to work with both of them. I think my role will be TV, but also flying on the plane with Mr. Trump more. Certainly working with our many different messaging partners in our coalitions, just to make sure that we are all coordinating and doing it together. We’ll never have the money and never have the manpower that Hillary Clinton has in Brooklyn, but we don’t need it. Quality candidates matter. People want a dynamic, honest, messenger in their presidential candidate they can trust.”
