Trump's Senior Advisor: Woman or Minority as Running Mate Would Be Pandering

Donald Trump's senior advisor Paul Manafort said, "He needs an experienced person to do the part of the job he doesn't want to do. He seems himself more as the chairman of the board, than even the CEO, let alone the COO."

During an interview, Manafort said that Trump will not pick a minority or a woman as VP, because it would be "pandering."

Manafort listed New Jersey Governor Chris Christie and Ohio Governor John Kasich as possibilities. He said, "There is a long list of who that person could be, and every one of them has major problems." Manafort added, "You don't change Donald Trump. You don't 'manage' him."

Although Ben Carson said that former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is on Trump's 'short list, Manafort made no mention of her.
