Paul Manafort on Friday resigned as Donald Trump's campaign chairman, after the Republican nominee earlier this week announced a new leadership structure for his campaign.

This morning Paul Manafort offered, and I accepted, his resignation from the campaign. I am very appreciative for his great work in helping to get us where we are today, and in particular his work guiding us through the delegate and convention process. Paul is a true professional and I wish him the greatest success," Trump said in a statement.

So far, its working. But its only been a few days.
