US election: Trump overhauls campaign team again

Donald Trump has overhauled his election campaign team again, bringing in a new manager and CEO.

It is the Republican presidential nominees’ second shakeup in only two months and comes on top of sliding poll ratings against his democratic rival Hillary Clinton.

Former investment banker Stephen Bannon will head the real-estate mogul’s new team while pollster Kellyanne Conway comes in as the campaign’s new manager. Trump has described them as ‘Big people’.

Despite maintaining his current title as campaign chairman, the latest overhaul is being widely seen as a demotion for Paul Manafort, who recently courted controversy due to his alleged links to the former ousted President of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych.

The latest move follows a series of recent controversies involving the US presidential hopeful, which appear to have hit his support among voters.
