Manafort: Report That Trump Asked Why U.S. Can't Use Nukes 'Absolutely Not True'
Donald Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort is denying a report that the Republican nominee repeatedly asked during a security briefing why he couldn't use nuclear weapons to solve the nation's problems.
On "Happening Now" today, Manafort said that is "absolutely not true."
"In fact, those security briefings haven’t started yet that they were supposedly referencing," Manafort told Jon Scott.
"The idea that he’s trying to understand where to use nuclear weapons, it just didn’t happen. I mean, I was in the meeting, it didn’t happen."
Manafort also denied reports that the Trump campaign is currently "in turmoil," saying that's just another false narrative from Hillary Clinton supporters.
"We’ve announced a record amount of money that we’ve raised in July. Mr Trump has appeared this week in front of crowds that are flowing onto the streets. So the campaign is in very good shape," Manafort said.
"We are organized, we are moving forward, and the Clinton machine may not like it, but we’re prepared for the fight."
