Paul Manafort, Trump's campaign manager, has been a lobbyist for foreign governments and foreign dictators for decades. He lobbied Washington on behalf of former Ferdinand Marcos of the Philippines, Mobutu Sese Seko of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, former Angolan rebel, Jonas Savimbi, and most recently, Viktor Yanukovych, former President of the Ukraine.
There is no question that Paul Manafort lobbied on behalf of other countries. He has close ties and business dealings with leaders in Ukraine, Russia and other Eastern European countries, along with countries in Africa and the Far East. His work and influence in these nations as an attorney is well documented.
The evidence suggests that Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort lobbied on behalf of other nations. Recently, there have been financial connections discovered between the campaign and Ukraine. At first the campaign denied any knowledge of these reports. However, more evidence has come to light which suggest that Manafort may be lobbying on behalf of other nations.
Based on the available evidence I do not believe that it is likely that Paul Manafort lobbied on behalf of other nations in his role as campaign chairman. Nevertheless in the light of unfavourable aspersions being cast in Manafort's direction I think that it is a wise and prudent move to replace him.
