Trump overhauls campaign team again

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has overhauled his campaign team for the second time in two months, with two new leaders.

Pollster Kellyanne Conway becomes campaign manager and Stephen Bannon of Breitbart News the CEO. Paul Manafort remains campaign chairman, but analysts say he has effectively been demoted.

Mr Trump told AP the new leaders were “terrific people… they’re champs”.

Mr Trump has seen his poll ratings slip since the party conventions last month. He trails Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton both nationally and in key battleground states.

He wrote on his web : “I have known Steve and Kellyanne both for many years. They are extremely capable, highly qualified people who love to win and know how to win.”
