President Trump demoted his campaign manager Brad Parscale as new polling shows him losing in five swing states. According to an analysis from Axios, it’s a significant development because it signifies that Trump knows that he’s losing.
Parscale played a large role in Trump’s 2016 win as the architect of his digital strategy. According to Axios’ report, there’s a reason that Parscale will remain on Team Trump despite his demotion.
“Trump really can’t fire Brad: He knows too much, and he built the digital infrastructure the campaign relies on,” Axios states.
As Axios points out, Bill Stepien, a Trump loyalist and longtime GOP operative, will be taking Parscale’s place. “Stepien worked on Trump’s 2016 campaign, then was White House political director before moving to the campaign.”
