Parscale Out as Campaign Manager Weeks After Botched Trump Rally Attendance Estimates

Weeks after the disappointing crowd at the Tulsa, Oklahoma rally, President Trump has replaced Brad Parscale as campaign manager. The president announced in a tweet that he was promoting Bill Stepien and keeping Parscale on for a digital role and as a senior advisor to the campaign.

I am pleased to announce that Bill Stepien has been promoted to the role of Trump Campaign Manager. 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!

Earlier today, Parscale referenced Rasmussen polls showing that “President Trump’s approval rating climbs to 48%, best numbers in months! STRONG approval highest in months. Disapproval lowest in months.” He said to ignore the “media noise.” In the end, it wasn’t enough.
