As we draw ever nearer to the 2020 election, President Trump is in a bit of a pickle.
You see, his approval rating isn’t looking so hot at the moment, with some polls indicating that it is possibly as low as 36%. Granted, this dip comes as the nation itself is facing a number of unprecedented and apolitical issues. Coronavirus, a racial revolution…you name it.
Now, with less than four months to go until our citizens head to the ballot box, incumbent President Donald Trump is making some major changes to his campaign team in hopes of remaining in the Oval Office for another 4 years.
Bill Stepien will replace Brad Parscale as manager of the Trump campaign, the president announced Wednesday night, shaking up the leadership of his stalled reelection bid.
Parscale will stay on in his role leading the campaign’s digital strategy and will serve as a senior adviser, Trump said. Parscale was the digital guru of the president’s insurgent 2016 White House bid but had not worked as a campaign manager prior to taking that role ahead of the 2020 race.
Stepien was recently promoted to deputy campaign manager. He previously served as the White House political director during Trump’s first two years in office. Before that, he was the campaign manager for former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s (R) two successful statewide campaigns in the Garden State.
The move comes just weeks after the Trump campaign held its first rally since the coronavirus pandemic landed stateside – an event that was largely under-attended, likely on account of the health risks.
