Top Trump Aide Brushes Off Roger Stone’s Threat To Anti-Trump Delegates

AP

Paul Manafort, a top aide to Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, brushed off comments that Roger Stone made encouraging Trump supporters to visit anti-Trump delegates in the case of a contested convention.

NBC News’ “Meet the Press,” host Chuck Todd asked Manafort if it was appropriate rhetoric.

“I’m not giving him my hotel room,” Manafort said. “Roger is not an official part of the campaign.”

Stone had said that the Trump campaign would disclose the hotel room numbers of anti-Trump delegates so Trump supporters could visit them and give a piece of their minds.
