Campaign insider: Trump ‘getting nuttier and nuttier’
The New York Post reports that an unnamed Trump campaign operative is one of many inside the tent who are increasingly frustrated with his erratic behavior.
“I did not think he’d be great in a general election, and thought there’d be episodes of paranoia/irrationality, but this is surprising for me,” one Trump operative told The Post.
“Trump is getting nuttier and nuttier,” the person added.
And CNBC’s John Harwood quoted a source as saying: “Manafort not challenging Trump anymore. Mailing it in. Staff suicidal.”
But Trump campaign spokesman Jason Miller insisted the campaign is going strong: “[T]he idea that Paul Manafort is mailing it in is completely erroneous. Our campaign just finished up our strongest month of fundraising to date, we’re adding talented and experienced staffers on a daily basis and Mr. Trump’s turning out bigger, more enthusiastic crowds than Hillary Clinton ever could.”
