Brad Parscale has been replaced as President Donald Trump’s campaign manager by current deputy campaign manager Bill Stepien.
Trump announced the change Wednesday via Twitter, adding that Parscale will stay on as a senior adviser responsible for “digital and data strategies.”
“I am pleased to announce that Bill Stepien has been promoted to the role of Trump Campaign Manager,” Trump tweeted Wednesday evening. “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,” he continued. “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!”
