Paul Manafort quotes
I don't think it's possible I could have even inadvertently had discussions with Russian officials. It's not like they wear badges. The story is not true.
I have never knowingly spoken to Russian intelligence officers and I have never been involved with anything to do with the Russian government or the Putin administration or any other issues under investigation today.
I understood it and totally agreed with that approach.
None of it is true ... There's no investigation going on by the FBI that I'm aware of.
You could have covered what he was saying, or you could try and take an aside and take the Clinton narrative and play it out. And you chose to do that instead.
The candidate is in control of his campaign. And I'm in control of doing the things that he wants me to do in the campaign.
The candidate's in control of his own campaign.
He believes that we need to have a temporary suspension from refugees to stop refugees from coming in from countries that are active in terrorist activities or in a war. That's the issue not the Khan family loss which we all regret.
There aren't that many similarities. There are a couple of phrases. It's basically three places in the speech and it's fragments of words. She spoke in front of 35 million people yesterday. She knew what she was doing. And she never cribbed from another speech without acknowledging that she was quoting somebody else.
Frankly, if I knew somebody did it I would fire them too.
Well, there is no cribbing of Michelle Obama's speech. These were common words and values and she cares about her family.
He's embarrassing his state, frankly.
The Bush family – while we would love to have had them – are part of the past. We are dealing with the future. They do not reflect the broad strokes of the Republican party.
We hope that when the Bush family decides to participate again in the political process that they will join us and we would welcome them handily. We have reached out to them. Now with Governor Kasich the same thing: We think it is a difficult situation when the home state governor doesn't participate in the convention process.
The Obama-Clinton years have passed legislation that has been favorable to the big banks, which is why you see all the Wall Street money going to her. They know she's their champion, and they are supporting her fully.
We are supporting the small banks and Main Street. We talk about legislation that affects, you know, some of the mistakes made in repealing Glass-Steagall and some of the mistakes made in imposing Dodd-Frank. The platform reflects those things.
I think Mr. Trump has reached a decision but he isn't prepared to announce it yet. Until he announces it, it's not final.
There's a lot that unites the leadership in the Congress as well as Donald Trump. But the important thing to remember is the national titular head of the party is the nominee of the Republican Party. He just won that overwhelmingly, faster than anybody in Washington thought and running as an outsider against Washington.
We're finding there's a lot of interest in working with him, coming on board.
You'll start to see more depth of the person, the real person. You'll see a real different way. He gets it. The part that he's been playing is evolving into the part that now you've been expecting, but he wasn't ready for, because he had first to complete the first phase. The negatives will come down. The image is going to change.
He's told Rick and I that he's willing to spend what's necessary to finish this out. That's a big statement from him. It allows us to put a plan together so that we can make sure that we finish this thing early enough so that you can feel comfortable that he's going to be the nominee.
He's actually living his word, and that's what the base that we are attracting to the Trump campaign is looking for. They're looking for honesty, and they're looking for consistency, and they're looking for someone who does exactly what they say.
We're here to let them know that we're going to run a traditional campaign with them. We are Republicans, we're running as a team and we want them to understand that we're going to be working with them.
I think [Trump], leading the effort of the united Republican Party, can raise the money they need to beat Hillary Clinton.
When he's out on the stage, when he's talking about the kinds of things he's talking about on the stump, he's projecting an image that's for that purpose.
He's willing to spend what is necessary to finish this out. That's a big statement from him.
Have we gone stark raving nuts? We just have to present him in a way that shows all sides of Donald Trump.
We talked about how we're going to expand the map. We just have to present him in a way that shows all sides of Donald Trump.
Not just me – he wants to bring on other people as well. We're expanding the campaign. We're building a campaign that's got depth now, not just across the board.
He's been growing on his own.
We've divided the roles, we're working together, Donald Trump is our boss and we're very happy.
I don't think the voters really have as much concern, but I know you guys are dying for one.
We're in a different phase of the campaign. And being in a different phase of the campaign requires different skills. We're in a phase where the end game requires winning smart, meaning we have to focus on not just winning the states, but what congressional districts we win and things like that. We're bringing that into the campaign.
The campaign had "several ways" to get to the 1,237 delegates needed to clinch the Republican nomination, including with the "unbound" delegates who will head to Cleveland.
Trump was doing very well on a model that made sense, but now, as the campaign has gotten to the end stages, a more traditional campaign has to take place. And Trump recognized that and is now reaching out not just with me, but with others as well that you'll start to see come in.
It's not my style, and it's not Donald Trump's style … But it is Ted Cruz's style. We're going to be filing several protests because reality is, you know, they are not playing by the rules.
It's not my style, and it's not Donald Trump's style … But it is Ted Cruz's style.
