President Donald Trump on Tuesday named Brad Parscale, his former digital adviser, as manager for his 2020 re-election campaign.
“Brad is an amazing talent and was pivotal to our success in 2016. He has our family's complete trust and is the perfect person to be at the helm of the campaign,” Eric Trump, the president’s son, said in a released statement.
Parscale was part of the president’s 2016 campaign, helping to launch the nonprofit America First Policies. The organization promotes the president’s causes and agenda.
Trump is the first president to publicly announced a run for re-election so soon after this (his?) election. There are nearly 1,000 days, plus a set of midterm elections, to go before the next presidential election.
“Brad was essential in bringing a disciplined technology and data-driven approach to how the 2016 campaign was run,” Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser, said in a statement. “His leadership and expertise will help build a best-in-class campaign.”
Who is Parscale? Here are nine things to know about him.
