I really like this.

Trump"s stunning decision effectively ended the months-long push by campaign chairman Paul Manafort to moderate Trump"s presentation and pitch for the general election. And it sent a signal, perhaps more clear than ever, that the real-estate mogul intends to finish this race on his own terms, with friends who share his instincts at his side.

Trump's turn away from Manafort is in part a reversion to how he ran his campaign in the primary with then-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski. Lewandowski's mantra was "let Trump be Trump" and Trump wants to get back to that type of campaign culture, the aides said.

New guy seems pretty interesting.
Bannon, in phone calls and meetings, has been urging Trump for months to not mount a fall campaign that makes Republican donors and officials comfortable, the aides said. Instead, Bannon has been telling Trump to run more fully as an outsider and an unabashed nationalist.

I didn't really notice a difference when Lewandowski ran it versus Manafort.

It probably has more to do with Manafort having a crooked past or more likely desperation on Trump's part.

Trump can only extend his base by creating fear which could attract those who have not bought his authoritarian nationalistic platform. His biggest help would come from a large terror attack on US soil.

It is clear that trying to present himself as a more capable, ethical, and trustworthy leader than Lying Hillary has failed. Look for the fear mongering to ramp up.

I'm not a conspiracy type, but one could see how this can create a moral hazard when a powerful man can greatly benefit from a horrific terror attack on home soil. At the very least you know some of his supporters are hoping for such an event.

This is it. It is his only shot at this point.

Trump wants to get back to being himself? Is that not what was going on when he was attacking the Khan family? Jesus, if that was a moderate Trump, I have to wonder what he'll be like now. Anyone want to place bets on whether he publicly drops a c- or n-bomb before election day?

When you go through 2 campaign managers and it is not even September, the problem is not the campaign manager, it is you.
