Donald Trump has hired David Bossie, the president of Citizens United, as his new campaign deputy manager, a move that signals the Republican candidate is likely preparing to go hard after Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
Trump announced the hire during a phone call with the Washington Post.
"A friend of mine for many years," Trump said Thursday. "Solid. Smart. Loves politics, knows how to win."
Bossie stepped down as president of the conservative activist group earlier this week, his team confirmed Thursday afternoon.
