As Hillary Clinton continues to pull ahead in the polls, rival Donald Trump continues to tank. More than thirty points separate Trump from his opponent and he’s not helping himself move up with his continued battle with the media and constant backpedaling from his off-the-hip statements.
Politico covered Trump’s most recent comments about the need for his approach to change and be more “Presidential.” Trump fired back saying he had no intention of changing, and that being who he was had gotten him this far. He also went on to elaborate on the topic, telling Wisconsin news station WKBT-TV, “Well, possibly I do [need to change], but, you know, I am who I am. It’s me. I don’t wanna change. Everybody talks about, ‘Oh, well you’re gonna pivot, you’re gonna’ — I don’t wanna pivot. I mean, you have to be you. If you start pivoting, you’re not being honest with people.”
However, Trump is not the only one in the camp with a spotlight on them, and manager Paul Manafort has been accused of having ties to the Ukraine and taking cash to support the Trump campaign. NY Times reported that nearly 12.7 million dollars worth of cash donations were listed in a ledger and never accounted for, making the “self-run” campaign glory of Donald Trump a major question mark.
With his ongoing media woes, and now accusations of taking cash donations from the Ukraine, Trump might consider changing up his routine and approach, because even though it’s gotten him this far, it may also bring about his demise.
