Donald Trumps campaign chairman Paul Manafort has resigned from his position, signifying a significant departure from the campaign.

His resignation comes after emails implicating his involvement in a covert Washington lobbying operation on behalf of the Ukraine’s ruling political party, were released by the associated press earlier this week. Such efforts included attempts to circumvent American public opinion in favour of the countries pro Russian government.

The emails also show that Manafort was in breach of federal law by not disclosing his work as a foreign agent as required.

The lobbying included direct attempts to undermine US public sympathy for Yulia Tymoshenko, who was at the time an imprisoned rival of the then President Viktor Yanukovych. Such efforts were in direct contradiction to statements made by both the US and European governments who were pressuring for her release.

These revelations come at a time when Donald Trump has been criticised for his pro Russian remarks that are strongly divergent from other members of the GOP. Indeed Trump described Putin as “bright and talented” just four years after Mitt Romney called Russia Americas greatest political foe.


Donald Trump and his campaign team has been dodged with one controversy or the other. It makes one wonder if the man has any adviser at all It seems as nobody vet through his campaign policy and personal misstatements its now not surprising that this is the caliber of person that make makes up his campaign team American past presidents are known for their oratory power out of which former Presidents John Kennedy.Bill Clinton and incumbent Barack Obama excelled. America Presidents are known to speak proprietorially hours without contradicting American constitution or their political party policy Now i wonder how Donald Trump and his political team into this flawless public interaction Hardly had Donald Trump made any policy or campaign statement without blunder, He talked down an American disabled citizen. ridiculed the parents of an American gallant soldier who died fighting for America.Their major sin was being Muslim, While the whole world was clamoring for a nuclear free world Trump presidency would encourage Japan and South Korea to arm themselves with nuclear weapon Just recently Trump incited American gun owners to target Hillary Clinton as the only way to stop her.What a careless president Trump would be if he eventually wins A MAN THAT SUFFERS FROM DIARRHEA OF THE MIND AND DYSENTERY OF THE MOUTH CAN RULE AMERICA AND THE REST OF THE WORLD
