Reports claim that the President has been furious with Parscale following the abysmal attendance of his Tulsa rally which had no regard for social distancing protocols.
Parscale managed digital operations for the Trump 2016 campaign and will remain with the 2020 campaign in the same department in a senior role.
President Trump continues to trail behind Democratic Presidential nominee Joe Biden in polls in critical states. Some media reports have associated Parscale’s demotion to the president’s poor performance in polls.
‘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,’ President Trump tweeted from the White House.
‘Both were heavily involved in our historic 2016 win, and I look forward to having a big and very important second win together,’ he continued.
‘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!’
