Trump says Manafort pardon U.S. President Donald Trump said on Wednesday he has not ruled out granting a pardon to his former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, who has pleaded guilty to a range of federal charges related to money laundering to unregistered lobbying. "It was never discussed, but I wouldn’t take it off the table. Why would I take it off the table?” the president told the New York Post during an Oval Office interview.

President Donald Trump’s reelection aides have decided on a campaign structure with three main offices split between New York City and the Washington area.

The campaign will again be headquartered at Trump Tower, according to two senior advisers to the president. But this time, the campaign will have a pair of satellite offices — one at the Republican National Committee’s building on Capitol Hill and another in nearby Rosslyn, Virginia.

Trump's private plane clipped in parking mishap at LaGuardia President Donald Trump's private jet, an instantly recognizable Boeing 757 used during his campaign, was caught up in a quintessential New York City traffic mishap at LaGuardia Airport on Wednesday: a fender bender while someone else was trying to park. A corporate jet maneuvering into a parking spot clipped the wing of Trump's parked plane around 8:30 a.m., Trump's company, The Trump Organization, confirmed.

Trump ’s early involvement in politics came while working alongside his father and consisted mostly of contributing to and befriending the Democratic officeholders in New York City who held sway over the many rules, regulations, tax policies, and permits that govern real estate developers.

The Trump Tower meeting and follow-ups are the first indication that countries beyond Russia may have offered help to the Trump campaign . The revelations about the meetings come in the midst of new scrutiny about ties between Mr. Trump ’s advisers and at least three wealthy Persian Gulf states.

RNC staffers and Trump campaign staffers will share office space at the Capitol Hill and Rosslyn locations.

The plan, which was designed by Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale and RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, is aimed at developing a streamlined campaign operation. It's also geared toward fostering collaboration between aides to Trump and the RNC and avoiding the infighting between the two sides that occurred in 2016. After Trump secured the GOP nomination that year, his team sometimes clashed with the national party committee over the direction of the campaign.

The selection of office space is one of the earliest moves of a campaign that is just beginning to take shape. Though Trump announced his reelection the day he was inaugurated, raised millions of dollars, and held rallies for an array of Republicans during the midterms, the structure of the president's own campaign operation is only now coming into focus.

I have asked her to serve another term for my 2020 re-elect, because there is no one better for the job!" he tweeted.

A handful of staffers, including Parscale, began working out of the Rosslyn office last week. Trump aides picked that location because of its relatively low cost and proximity to Reagan National Airport and the Washington subway system. The office space is being paid for by the committee.

Trump aides decided to have a second office in the Washington area because of space limitations at the RNC.

The Manhattan office space, meanwhile, will take up part of the 15th floor of Trump Tower. The location is expected to become a base for the campaign’s TV surrogates and major donors who reside in the area.

Trump aides envision the campaign working as single entity with the national committee — avoiding duplication and turf wars, and potentially saving money.
