Manafort Acknowledges ‘Conflict’ in Trump Campaign Over Ryan Endorsement

Donald Trump's campaign chairman Paul Manafort acknowledged that "there's a conflict within the Trump campaign" over the GOP presidential nominee's hesitation to endorse Republican House Speaker Paul Ryan for reelection. But Manafort insisted that the two are "very good friends."

"Of course he's trying to bridge the party with Paul Ryan," Manafort told George Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America." "But Paul Ryan is running against someone who's not going to win but is a strong supporter of Mr. Trump."
