TRUMP PEOPLE/UKRAINE: "Trump shook up his campaign leadership, launched television ads, gave one of the best speeches of his candidacy and quietly visited flood-ravaged Louisiana. But much of his effort was overshadowed by the announcement Friday that his campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, had resigned, completing the shift in power at the top of Trump’s campaign but keeping alive the sense of turbulence within the operation… Manafort’s controversial work for a pro-Russia political party in Ukraine seized the conversation on cable news and social media, pointing to upheaval in Trump’s campaign. Manafort was effectively demoted earlier this week after Trump named Stephen K. Bannon, a pugilistic conservative-media honcho who has never worked on a campaign, as his chief executive officer and pollster Kellyanne Conway as his campaign manager — the second leadership overhaul in two months."
