Poll Context: Paul Manafort, Trump’s senior adviser, has said that Trump is ready to ‘evolve’ as a candidate and work with the RNC to finish the campaign.
“He recognizes that things aren’t static. That what is right to start the campaign isn’t necessarily the way you finish the campaign,” Manafort told CNN Thursday night after he met with RNC officials.
But Manafort did not want to call anything a “détente” between Trump and the GOP establishment. “There’s no reason to have a detente, I mean there’s not a fight,” he said.
“I mean the Trump campaign and the RNC are working together on a bunch of different things … but the focus has been on getting the nomination,” he said. “Now that we’re approaching the nomination, the focus is on blending the party and the campaign so that we can run as a united team and that’s what we started to do here this weekend.”
Is this the right move and do you trust the RNC to work with Trump?
