New Trump manager faced domestic violence charge – press


NEW YORK: US presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s newly appointed campaign manager was charged with domestic violence in 1996, New York newspapers reported Friday. According to both the New York Post and the New York Times, the case against conservative media mogul turned political operative Steve Bannon ended when his wife failed to appear to testify against him. Bannon—head of the incendiary conservative news site Breitbart—was a controversial choice when Trump hired him to replace a previous campaign chief tainted by his past as a lobbyist for pro-Kremlin interests. It is understood that Bannon no longer faces any proceedings relating to the 1996 case, but its revelation may complicate Trump’s task as he seeks to woo wary women voters.
