Former Trump adviser: Trump stopped listening to Manafort weeks ago

Michael Caputo, a former adviser to Donald Trump’s presidential campaign, said in a radio interview on Friday that the Republican nominee stopped listening to ex-campaign chairman Paul Manafort several weeks ago.

“I think, as became apparent over time here, that the two of them stopped seeing eye-to-eye a few weeks ago,” Caputo said on Kilmeade and Friends. “I am not privy to their private conversations or how they felt about each other, but the disagreement become more and more apparent.”

“You could see it in some of the news reporting that was out there,” he continued. “It appeared that Mr. Trump had stopped listening to Paul Manafort, which we were told, those of us on the outside looking in, that led to Kellyanne Conway and Steve Bannon coming in to augment the leadership team. I was quite surprised today to find out that Paul Manafort resigned.”
