Donald Trump is shaking things up....again. The U.S. Republican presidential nominee is overhauling his troubled campaign bringing in new blood. Stephen Bannon, the executive chairman of Breitbart News, has been appointed campaign CEO. And well-known pollster Kellyanne Conway, who has been a senior advisor to Trump's bid for the White House, has been promoted to campaign manager. The shakeup comes as polls show Trump falling behind rival Hillary Clinton. With less than three months to go the November election, Trump has faced a barrage of criticism for his divisive rhetoric. This marks the second time in two months the New York businessman has made a major shift in the leadership of his campaign. In June, he fired longtime aide Corey Lewandowski as campaign manager. Paul Manafort who was elevated to campaign chairman at the time will remain in his current position.
