Trump's embattled campaign chairman resigns

Paul Manafort, pictured on April 26, 2016, served as a public relations adviser to former president Viktor Yanukovych from 2007 and 2012Donald Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, resigned Friday under fire over a Ukrainian corruption investigation and after being sidelined in a reshuffle as the Republican nominee struggles to reverse sinking poll numbers. The departure of the smooth-talking seasoned strategist, who has advised Republican presidential candidates going back to Gerald Ford, follows weeks of Trump missteps that have flung his White House campaign into crisis. Manafort’s exit coincides what supporters call a new era in the Trump campaign following the appointment Wednesday of a right-wing news executive as CEO and the promotion of a respected pollster to campaign manager.
