Trump’s Inner Circle To Huddle In New York Monday For Major Strategy Meeting

Republican Donald Trump is set to meet with top aides, members of his family and key confidants Monday in New York in an effort to chart a path forward for his campaign after a string of high-profile missteps, Bloomberg Politics reported.

The meeting comes amid growing frustration that key roles in the campaign remain unfilled as staffers prepare to stare down Democrat Hillary Clinton’s vast infrastructure in the general election, according to the report, published before news broke that Trump had parted ways with his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski.

Trump has also hired GOP strategist Keith Nahigian, who ran former Rep. Michele Bachmann’s (R-MN) insurgent presidential campaign in 2012. Nahigian is currently working on Trump’s surrogate strategy, Bloomberg reported.

The meeting comes after weeks of Trump attacking an Indiana-born federal judge for his “Mexican” heritage. Trump also suggested over the weekend that the Orlando nightclub shooting, the deadliest attack on U.S. soil since 9/11, might have been prevented if victims had been carrying guns in the club, before rolling back those remarks on Monday.
