With just a little more than a month before the Republican National Convention, Donald Trump, the presumptive GOP nominee, has no campaign organization, MSNBC reports.

"Republicans working to elect Trump describe a bare-bones effort debilitated by infighting, a lack of staff to carry out basic functions, minimal coordination with allies and a message that's prisoner to Trump's momentary whims," according to a story posted on the network's website.

"Bottom line, you can hire all the top people in the world, but to what end? Trump does what he wants," the network quotes a source close to the campaign.

According to MSNBC, longtime political insiders are stunned by the campaign's inability to fill key positions. It notes there is no communications team to deal with media and no rapid response director to fight attacks against Trump.

And the network said a campaign source warned that if Trump failed to hire a communications team by the convention, the candidate would likely lose the election.
But Trump took to Twitter to defend his campaign organization.


Meanwhile The New York Times reports the Trump organization is bringing on additional staffers to gear up for the general election, including a new national political director and people for its communications team.

The newspaper said Jim Murphy, a former senior adviser to Bob Dole's presidential campaigns in 1988 and 1996, has been hired by the campaign as national political director.
