Trump’s ‘failing’ campaign manager is on the run

CINEMA ISLAND, Ga.

— The Latest on President Donald Trump’s trip to Turkey (all times local):10:35 a.m.

President Donald Trump is set to arrive in Turkey on Wednesday to continue his trip to the region, a White House official says.

The official said the president is scheduled to speak with Prime Minister Binali Yildirim.

The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the trip is private.

The president’s trip, the first of his presidency, has been plagued by controversy over Trump’s campaign manager’s ties to Turkey and his use of the slogan “Make America Great Again.”

Trump’s visit to Turkey is the first foreign trip of his first term, and he is visiting Turkey as part of a larger effort to make the U.S. a global leader in education and economic development.

The visit will mark the first time Trump has been to Turkey in years, according to the official, who spoke on the condition of a strict gag order.

Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, is among the president’s top aides.

The administration is expected to announce more details about the trip during an announcement Thursday afternoon.
