Ronna McDaniel To Step Down At RNC After Trump Calls For Removal: Report

 Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel has reportedly told former President Donald Trump that she will step down from her post immediately following the GOP South Carolina presidential primary later this month.

The New York Times reported that Trump is "likely" to promote North Carolina Republican Party Chairman Michael Whatley as his replacement.

"I would say, right now, probably some changes will be made," he said.

During an interview on Newsmax on Monday, Trump was asked if he thought McDaniel should leave his post.

Trump responded, "Well, I think she knows that." "I think she understands that."
