George W. Bush’s political architect is assisting President Donald Trump’s campaign as an adviser.
Karl Rove has been helping Trump’s 2020 re-election campaign in an unpaid and informal role, staying in regular communication with campaign manager Brad Parscale and White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, reported Business Insider.
Republican insiders suggested that Rove — who worked for Bush and his father, who were critical of Trump — is helping the campaign to keep his name relevant for presidential candidates in four years.
“Rove is looking at the bigger picture, and there is life after Trump,” said one Republican.
However, Rove denied being “deeply engrained in the Trump campaign” and said Parscale had called him occasionally to ask for advice.
“Occasionally he’s even kind enough to call me and say ‘what do you think about this,’ so and I’m happy to give him my unvarnished advice and he can do with it what he will,” Rove said.

Trump attacks Biden for not holding rallies during pandemic: ‘This guy never goes out’
With just 39 days until the US election, President Donald Trump ramped up his campaigning with back-to-back events Friday in battleground states -- a frenetic pace in contrast with the more sedate approach of Democratic rival Joe Biden.
The 74-year-old president's grueling schedule includes hosting events in three states plus the capital Washington in a 12-hour slog that culminates with a nighttime rally in Virginia.
Trump -- who trails Biden in national polling and is narrowly behind in several swing states seen as crucial to his path to re-election -- is under pressure to make the most of the remaining weeks before the November 3 election.
