Donald Trump and his campaign are pivoting away from his long-time and controversial campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.

The move comes after a brutal few weeks for Trump, who has faced criticism for a seeming lack of interest in campaigning, as well as several tone deaf statements made in the wake of the Orlando attack. The move leaves Paul Manafort—a more traditional establishment figure—in charge of the Trump campaign.

Is this a turning point for the Trump campaign?

There are two narratives being pushed.
#TrumpSinkingShip
Critics frame this as a sign of Trump’s desperation. Trump stood by Lewandowski when he faced battery charges. Trump stood by Lewandowski even after bringing on Manafort. Instead of a strategic pivot, this is the climax of an internal power struggle within the Trump campaign—a sign of things to come. Besides this, some Trump supporters are shaking their heads, saying Manafort was the problem all along. Trump needs to be Trump to win this.

Manafort in charge is a sign that Trump is taking this campaign seriously. Lewandowski was the man who “let Trump be Trump,” the Wall Street Journal reported. His ousting represents a key shift in the campaign as it gears up for November. Getting rid of Lewandowski consolidates power around Manafort, who has advocated for a more reigned in and traditional campaign. Without Lewandowski competing for power, Manafort is empowered to make the changes he needs to bolster the campaign.
