Parscale hits rough patch as Trump campaign manager
July 12 at 5:25 PM
Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale had an unusual samsung galaxy j5 coque licorne cameo in the president’s first television ad of the year: coque samsung a70 basket Sandwiched among images of Trump and Vice President Pence, the bearded Parscale appears twice, taking a selfie with supporters and hugging girls in red ball caps.
It was an unprecedented https://www.simonjara.fr/collections/coque-autres-huawei use of an ad one that cost $142,655, according to the firm Ad Analytics to promote a campaign staffer. It sent a clear message to Trump’s orbit: Parscale, a colorful and outspoken public face of Trumpism, was the leader of the campaign.
But the image concealed coque samsung j3 2016silicone a more complicated reality. As Trump’s reelection coque disney samsung galaxy a20e effort struggles, Parscale, despite his self promotion, increasingly finds himself out of favor with his boss and hemmed in by newly hired staffers and recently promoted advisers, according to people familiar with the campaign.
A political novice who became a Republican celebrity after running Trump’s online ad effort in 2016, Parscale has long operated without a campaign manager’s usual autonomy, as Trump family members exert their influence.
Now Parscale’s role is being further threatened. Trump has made clear his displeasure with Parscale, especially after a disappointing rally in Tulsa, and the coque strass samsung j3 2017 campaign has expanded coque samsung j3 2017 alice au pays des merveilles its senior team in ways that diminish his role, according to multiple campaign and administration officials.
Trump’s new kitchen cabinet, a combination of White House and campaign employees led by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner, includes Parscale’s recently promoted deputy Bill Stepien and two communications aides from the 2016 campaign Hope Hicks and Jason Miller, who was coque souple a50 samsung recently hired by the campaign and is increasingly seen as its principal strategist.

Miller and Stepien, who officially report to Parscale, were talking with Trump almost every day in the week leading up to Trump’s pivotal July 3 speech at Mount Rushmore. Sometimes, Republican Party chairwoman Ronna McDaniel and Chris Carr, the party’s political director, joined the conversations.
The advisers discussed polling, potential campaign events, organizing and other topics, officials said. Parscale, though, returned to his home in Florida after visiting Washington early in the week and continued to dial into conference calls, officials said.
Parscale, 44, has long coque samsung j3 2017 simba occupied a unique spot in Trump’s orbit. At 6 foot 8 with a dramatic red beard, he cuts a brash figure coque marvel samsung galaxy a40 and is given to statements like comparing the Trump campaign to the Death Star, a superweapon in the Star Wars movies. In many ways, his self promotion and aggressive style mirror Trump’s.
In a statement for this story, Parscale https://www.artcorekirbies.fr/collections/coque-huawei-p9 denied any weakening of his position and rejected criticism of his coque samsung j3 2017 mouton performance.
“This is the same tired story being shopped every week by the same lowlife anonymous sources who are putting their own personal interests ahead of the president and his campaign, in a misguided attempt to weasel their way in to resurrect their failed and disgraced careers,” Parscale said.
But campaign and White House officials say Parscale does not always appear to understand the coque samsung j3 2017 3d chat political dynamics of crucial swing states. In a recent meeting at Republican National Committee headquarters, an official said, Parscale asked questions about the reelection budget that suggested he did not fully grasp it. Trump and Kushner have begun interrupting him more frequently when he speaks, this person said.
Allies of Parscale say he maintains the trust of the Trump family, including Trump son in law Kushner, continues to advise the president and travels weekly to the White House. Many on the expanded team, they said, work well with Parscale, and he is largely responsible for the massive reelection operation, with its million plus volunteers, nearly $300 million in cash and extensive data operation.
“Brad is absolutely the right man for the job,” said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R Calif.). “His work ethic and command of what it takes to run a successful campaign in 2020 is second to none.”

A senior Trump administration official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to comment on personnel issues, said Parscale “knows he screwed up” with the Trump rally last month in Tulsa, which featured numerous empty seats despite the president’s predictions of an overflow crowd. But such occasional mistakes do not overshadow Parscale’s significant accomplishments, this person said.
“He knows what his job is, and we are entering a new phase,” said the official. “Brad’s focus right now is really on management and data.”
The official said the most important people in Trump’s orbit still trust Parscale. “In this town, you have a lot of people who are the political consultants who are always trying to position things,” the official said. “That is not Brad. We know he has the same intention as the family.”
That confidence, however, has not prevented internal complaints about Parscale’s frequent absence from coque tracteur samsung j3 2016 campaign headquarters. Parscale lives in Florida, and the campaign is based in Northern Virginia, and staffers say that when they talk to him, he is often by his pool in Fort Lauderdale.
“You can’t have a campaign manager who isn’t even around the campaign,” said another senior White House official, who also spoke on coque samsung j3 vegeta the https://www.anten.fr/collections/coque-huawei-p10 condition of anonymity to discuss internal dynamics.
Campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh defended the arrangement. “Brad has been in the office every week since we’ve been open, except the week after the Tulsa rally, when he was quarantined,” he said. “There’s no question at the campaign who’s in charge. We all report to Brad.”
Parscale added, “These anonymous cowards have no valid criticisms of the job I’m doing, so now they’re attacking where I sit.”

The dissent comes as several longtime Trump advisers are trying to lift the president out of his current dismay over the state of his campaign.
Former New Jersey governor Chris Christie recently sent Trump a lengthy memo explaining that the president could not run the same campaign in 2020 as in 2016 and offering various ways to improve his standing. Other informal advisers, such as Chris Ruddy, the chief executive of Newsmax, have counseled the president to change course in ways that would appeal to independent minded voters.
Amid these struggles, Parscale’s high profile has not coque complete samsung a40 gone https://www.sushicube.fr/collections/coque-personnalisees-samsung unnoticed. One senior administration official told him that putting his face in a TV ad was not helpful. Parscale told his production team to stop including him in ads, a campaign official said.
But other novel promotions of the campaign manager continue. Parscale is listed as a “host” on https://www.lastage.fr/collections/coque-samsung-s9 invitations for Trump’s high dollar fundraisers, even ones he does not attend.
