The US GOP presidential nominee, Donald Trump’s campaign chairman, Paul Manafort has resigned in wake of campaign shakeup and revelations about Ukraine work. His resignation was confirmed on Friday. Manafort’s resignation comes as his ties to pro-Russian forces in Ukraine were revealed.
Earlier this week, Trump brought in Stephen K. Bannon, chairman of the Breitbart News website, as his campaign’s chief executive, pushing aside Manafort.
Manafort had drawn public scrutiny after reports linking him to former Ukrainian Leader Viktor Yanukovych.
