MEMO REVEALS TRUMP CAMP’S FURY WITH CRITICS
WASHINGTON In a private document obtained by The Washington Post, Trump campaign senior adviser Barry Bennett revealed the mounting frustrations among the billionaire’s top aides as they closed what was a tumultuous week.
Entitled “Digging through the Bull (expletive),” Bennett’s memo urged Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski — who was charged with battery last week for yanking a reporter’s arm — and others to ignore critics who have questioned whether Trump’s campaign for the Republican presidential nomination has waned.
“America is sick of them. Their idiotic attacks just remind voters why they hate the Washington Establishment,” Bennett wrote, citing tracking poll data favourable to Trump.
“Donald Trump 1,” Bennett declared, as if he was scoring the past week. “Washington Establishment/Media 0.”
When asked whether his ire was directed more at the national media or the GOP’s establishment wing, Bennett said in an interview, “Both.”
“All of that is the establishment,” Bennett said.
