President Donald Trump’s daughter and her husband are reportedly angry at Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale after a Tulsa rally failed to meet expectations.
According to CNN’s Jim Acosta, Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner were said to be “pissed” at the campaign manager because thousands of the arena’s seats were empty.
From our Chief White House @Acosta : Turns out Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner are “pissed” at Trump Campaign Mgr. Brad Parscale for predicting a much larger turnout at the Tulsa rally last night than actually showed — only 6200. There were thousands of empty seats. #CNN

Parscale sought to blame the media in a statement released on Sunday.
“Leftists and online trolls are doing a victory lap, thinking they somehow impacted rally attendance,” Parscale wrote, “don’t know what they’re talking about or how our rallies work. Reporters who wrote gleefully about TikTok and K-pop fans — without contacting the campaign for comment — behaved unprofessionally and were willing dupes to the charade.”
“For the media to now celebrate the fear that they helped create is disgusting, but typical,” he added. “And it makes us wonder why we bother credentialing media for events when they don’t do their full jobs as professionals.”
Campaign manager Brad Parscale says campaign trashes sign-ups that use fake phone nos. when calculating rally attendance.
But how many trolls used real ones? &Did the 1M ticket requests figure that the campaign bragged about incl. fakes? pic.twitter.com/yBCouF3upV

Trump campaign dispatches Pence to shore up Mormon support — after harsh criticism from Mitt Romney and Jeff Flake: report
The president's 2020 election campaign continues to play defense in Arizona, a once reliably-Republican state.
"President Donald Trump's reelection campaign is looking to shore up support among a specific population of Arizonans: members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints," the Arizona Republica reported Monday. "Vice President Mike Pence is coming to Mesa Tuesday to help launch a 'Latter-day Saints for Trump' coalition in what appears to be a late-in-the-game play to win over LDS voters, who tend to vote Republican but hold values that clash with some of the president's."
Here’s how Trump created a ‘significant threat’ to his re-election by failing on coronavirus stimulus
Politico on Monday reported on how Donald Trump may have imperiled his 2020 presidential campaign by failing to reach a deal with Congress on the next round of stimulus.
"After a spring and summer bolstered by cash infusions from the federal government of more than $3 trillion, the U.S. economy may have to sink or swim this fall with a relative trickle of support — presenting a significant threat to President Donald Trump’s standing as he heads into a compressed reelection campaign already trailing in the polls," Politico's Ben White reported.
Nevada GOP blasted for allowing ‘dangerous lies’ by the Trump campaign about the state’s elections
Republicans were harshly criticized by veteran Nevada reporter Jon Ralson for telling "dangerous lies" about the state's upcoming 2020 election.
Ralston, the editor of The Nevada Independent, noted a tweet by former GOP Attorney General Adam Laxalt.
"Mail in voting is to voting what a take home exam is to a proctored one! And if you have a million dollar winning lottery ticket would you mail it in to claim the prize? Or would you hand carry it? Why would we treat the sacred right to vote with any more laxity?" Laxalt asked. "Secure our vote!"
