President Donald Trump announced Wednesday he is switching campaign managers amid a reelection effort beset by a series of problems including an underwhelming turnout at a rally in Oklahoma and numerous polls showing Trump trailing the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.
Trump announced on Facebook that Bill Stepien, a former White House political director, would become his campaign manger. Stepien replaces Brad Parscale, who will continue to oversee digital and data strategies and will serve as a senior adviser.
“I am pleased to announce that Bill Stepien has been promoted to the role of Trump campaign manager,” Trump posted. “Both were heavily involved in our historic 2016 win, and I look forward to having a big and very important second win together.”
