According to the publication The Week, Donald Trump’s campaign announced Saturday it fired top political adviser Roger Stone, CNN wrote.
“We have a tremendously successful campaign and Roger wanted to use the campaign for his own personal publicity,” a campaign spokesperson said. “He has had a number of articles about him recently and Mr. Trump wants to keep the focus of the campaign on how to Make America Great Again.”
For his part, Stone denied that he was fired and says he submitted his resignation, citing controversies and media fights.
One reason Stone is reportedly leaving is the backlash due to Trump’s misogynistic comments toward Fox News’ Megyn Kelly.
Yahoo News writes that Stone tweeted: “Sorry @realDonaldTrump didn’t fire me- I fired Trump. Diasagree with diversion to food fight with @megynkelly away core issue messages.”
