Trump Drops Brad Parscale as Campaign Manager

President Donald Trump has dropped his campaign manager Brad Parscale. Amid a worsening outlook for his reelection, the President announced on Wednesday that Parscale had been demoted and Republican veteran Bill Stepien had taken his place.

“I am pleased to announce that Bill Stepien has been promoted to the role of Trump Campaign Manager,” Trump said on Twitter.

“Brad Parscale, who has been with me for a very long time and has led our tremendous digital and data strategies, will remain in that role, while being a Senior Advisor to the campaign. Both were heavily involved in our historic 2016 win, and I look forward to having a big and very important second win together.”

“This one should be a lot easier as our poll numbers are rising fast, the economy is getting better, vaccines and therapeutics will soon be on the way, and Americans want safe streets and communities!” Trump wrote.

Stepien was involved in Trump’s 2016 campaign and also worked on Senator John McCain’s 2008 run and President George W. Bush’s 2004 reelection. Parscale has come under increased scrutiny in recent weeks, including from conservative trying to defeat the President.
