Hillary Clinton's campaign gloated Wednesday afternoon over reports that Donald Trump's campaign had undergone yet another staff shake-up, and hailed the news as further proof that the GOP nominee is leading an ugly and base campaign.

"After several failed attempts to pivot into a more serious and presidential mode, Donald Trump has decided to double down on his most small, nasty and divisive instincts by turning his campaign over to someone who is best known for running a so-called news site that has divisive, at times racist, anti-Muslim, anti-Semitic conspiracy theories," said Hillary for America campaign manager Robby Mook.

"And what has become clear from this is that no matter how much the establishment wants to clean Donald Trump up, get him on a teleprompter and get him on message, he has officially won the fight to 'Let Trump be Trump,' and keeps telling us who he is. It's time that we believe him," he added.

Mook's comments come shortly after it was reported early Wednesday morning that the Trump campaign had elevated former banker and Breitbart executive chairman Stephen Bannon to the role of chief executive.

GOP pollster and Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway has also been prompted to the position of campaign manager, a role previously occupied by Corey Lewandowski and then by Paul Manafort.

The campaign overhaul, the second of its kind in just two months, comes with just 82 days left until the Nov. 8 elections.

Conway explained the shake-up as "an expansion of the team."

"Paul remains as chairman," she told CNN.

The staff change was driven in large part by Trump's feeling of being "boxed in" by Manafort's reported attempts to get the GOP nominee to moderate his tone, the Post added.

The idea, then, is that Conway and Bannon will aide Trump in finishing out the remainder of the election in a fashion that the candidate feels is more authentic and true to his character.

"I want to win," Trump explained late Tuesday in an interview with the Wall Street Journal. "That's why I'm bringing on fantastic people who know how to win and love to win."

He added in a separate interview with the Associated Press, "I've known both of them for a long time. They're terrific people, they're winners, they're champs, and we need to win it."

The change in lead staff roles comes right after Trump stated in an interview Tuesday that he has no intention of pivoting or moderating his tone.

"You know, I am who I am," he told a Wisconsin television station. "It's me. I don't want to change. Everyone talks about, 'Oh, well you're going to pivot, you're going to.' I don't want to pivot. I mean, you have to be you. If you start pivoting, you're not being honest with people."

Reports of the reshuffling also come after a month of terrible polling for the Trump campaign, as national surveys consistently show Hillary Clinton easily bests the GOP nominee.

Clinton leads Trump by 6.7 points, according to a RealClearPolitics polling average. The former secretary of state also beats Trump in all 20 of the most recently released national polls.
