For Donald Trump, the hits keep coming.

On Thursday Jim Murphy, Trump's campaign's national political director, announced he would no longer be playing an active role in Trump's bid for the White House.

"I have not resigned but for personal reasons have had to take a step back from the campaign," Murphy said in a statement to Politico.

The move comes just 19 days out from the election and marks yet another turbulent moment for the republican nominee. As Trump's popularity has tanked in recent polls, he's cycled through several campaign managers and fought against rumors that his campaign is operating largely without formal infrastructure

News of Murphy's departure comes less than 24 hours after the third and final presidential debate, where Trump was handily defeated — yet again — by democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.
