Clinton Takes Dig At Trump Campaign Shake-up: He’ll Still Never Change

During a campaign rally in Ohio on Wednesday, Hillary Clinton took a jab at Donald Trump’s tumultuous campaign, alluding to his campaign shake-up announced Wednesday morning.

“He can hire and fire anybody he wants from his campaign, they can make him read new words from a teleprompter, but he is still the same man who insults Gold Star families, demeans women, mocks people with disabilities and thinks he knows more about ISIS than our generals,” Clinton said. “There is no new Donald Trump. This is it.”

The Trump campaign underwent staffing changes Wednesday morning, hiring Breitbart executive Steve Bannon as the new campaign CEO and naming Kellyanne Conway as the new campaign manager. The campaign also reportedly diminished Paul Manafort’s role, though he remains campaign chair. This comes after the campaign parted ways with campaign manager Corey Lewandowski in June after he reportedly clashed with Manafort.

“For anyone waiting for Donald Trump to suddenly become more responsible, remember what a great American, Maya Angelou said, ‘When someone shows you who they are, believe them.’ And I think it’s fair to say that Donald Trump has shown us who he is,” Clinton told the crowd.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
