Trump Campaign Manager Can’t Say Whether He Was Aware of CEO’s Domestic Violence Charges

ConwayWhen asked on Good Morning America whether or not Donald Trump was aware that his campaign chief Steve Bannon had once been charged with assaulting his wife, Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said that she just didn’t know.

“We saw those reports yesterday in both Politico and The New York Post saying he had been charged with domestic violence in 1996, and actually according to court records told his wife not to appear to file the charges,” noted host George Stephanopoulos Friday.

“Was Mr. Trump aware of this?” Stephanopoulos asked. “Is he okay with it?”

“I don’t know what he was aware of with respect to a 20-year-old claim where the charges were dropped,” Conway responded. “So that’s all I know about, is what I read.”
