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.
