Clinton said there is no new version of Trump coming as he shakes up his campaign leadership.

Top Clinton backer on shuffling of Trump campaign: 'You can't fix Trump'

Donald Trump's campaign shake-up won't change his nature, a top backer of Hillary Clinton warned Wednesday. 

Trump announced that Breitbart News executive Steve Bannon will run his campaign. But Trump's temperament is what really concerns voters, argued Paul Begala, a former aide to Bill Clinton who now heads the main super PAC supporting Hillary Clinton's presidential run.

“He plows right through that fence, he goes and bites the neighbor’s kid or …  the POW, or the disabled folks, right, or people from Mexico or people who are Muslims,” Begala said on CNN’s “New Day.” “This is all about Trump.”

Trump is clearly betting on his unpredictable nature to win over voters, Begala said.

“You can’t fix Trump,” he said. “They’ve tried.”
