Snapshots: Trump says egos bruised after shakeup
Republican Donald Trump is acknowledging some bruised egos as he continues to overhaul his campaign at an unusually late stage of the game.
Trump said in a phone interview with “Fox & Friends” Tuesday that his recent hires, including a growing role for campaign veteran Paul Manafort, may not exactly be embraced by those who’ve been with him since the beginning.
He says in the interview that when new people come in, “some people, their feelings get a little bit hurt.”
Trump announced last week that Rick Wiley, who previously managed Scott Walker’s campaign, had been hired as national political director, overseeing the campaign’s filed operations.
Trump’s national field director Stuart Jolly tendered his resignation Monday amid the shakeup.
Trump, Clinton look for wins on home turf
New York — Hillary Clinton looked to her adopted home state of New York for a convincing primary victory Tuesday to strengthen her claim to the Democratic presidential nomination, while Republican Donald Trump hoped a big win would steady his campaign after setbacks and internal turmoil.
Trump’s standing in New York has never been in doubt, and the main question facing the billionaire businessman was whether he could sweep most or even all of the 95 Republican delegates up for grabs.
Trump’s main rival, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, is trying to stay close enough in the delegate count to push the GOP race to a contested convention.
Among Democrats, the race between Clinton and Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders turned more tense in New York. They sharply questioned each other’s qualifications for the presidency, then sparred in a debate over her ties to Wall Street and his position on the gun makers.
Sanders faces difficult mathematical odds in overtaking Clinton in the delegate count, odds that will get even longer if he can’t pull off an upset victory in New York.
