Manafort on Trump challengers: GOP is not a one-candidate party –


) — With Donald Trump launching his 2024 presidential bid, many within the Republican Party appear to have an appetite for change and seem ready to put the former president behind them.

“I don’t know how he gets the ticket by playing the same game,” said Chris Cuomo, a host for NewsNation.

Cuomo spoke with someone Thursday night who says he knows the game (and Trump) very well: Paul Manafort.

Manafort served as Trump’s 2016 campaign chairman. He was convicted in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation and later received a pardon from Trump.

Manafort said that Trump wanted to announce his 2024 presidential bid before the midterm elections and that there was already information that he was going to enter the race.

“I mean, the ad was just putting a period at the end of the sentence. People say, ‘Well, I should have waited.’ Why?” Manafort questioned.
