Donald Trump is fighting for his political life in his re-election campaign.
Polls show Joe Biden in the lead.
And now Donald Trump made one big change to his campaign that no one saw coming.
Donald Trump announced on social media that he was demoting campaign manager Brad Parscale and promoting deputy campaign manager Bill Stepien to run the re-election bid.
Parscale would handle data and digital advertising, the same role he held in Trump’s successful 2016 campaign.
“I am pleased to announce that Bill Stepien has been promoted to the role of Trump Campaign Manager,” President Trump wrote. “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!” President Trump added.
Many Trump supporters credit Parscale’s data operation in 2016 for uncovering the fact that President Trump had far more working class support in “blue wall” states like Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin as well for reaching those voters with targeted Facebook ads to persuade them to vote for Trump.
But Parscale had no experience in politics to run a campaign whereas Stepien is an experienced political hand.
President Trump made numerous shakeups to his campaign team in 2016 as he constantly adjusted his leadership team depending on the circumstances of the race and their skill sets.
Trump supporters are hoping this change pays off like the leadership teams switches did back in 2016.
