Trump’s campaign mgr: He ‘doesn’t need to figure out what’s going on in order to say what he wants to do’
Paul Manafort made this incomprehensible statement on Meet the Press.
Do you acknowledge that you’re behind both organizationally and in the polls?
No, I think because what you’re trying to do is comparing an 800-person organization in Brooklyn of Mrs. Clinton’s with an integrated system of the R.N.C. and the Trump campaign, which doesn’t appear on an F.E.C. report. We have hundreds, we have actually thousands of people in the battleground states, political organizers who are now in place, we have state organizations that are in place, we have our campaign plans in place, we have our budgets in place.
And the good thing is, we have a candidate who doesn’t need to figure out what’s going on in order to say what he wants to do. So our campaign is organized. We’re ready, we’re going to have a good convention, and we’re confident that we are not behind the Clinton campaign. They’re muscle-bound. We’re not.
