Brad Parscale is no longer Donald Trump’s campaign manager. The Republican candidate announced on his Facebook page on Wednesday.
Parscale, who has been known to work with Trump family for years, helped Trump secure his first presidential election effort as the head of the 2016 campaign's data analytics team and later on called to be his reelection campaign manager in early 2018. There has been, as sources said, serious doubts that the former campaign manager will likely to retain his post after the President’s poor poll standing against Democratic presumptive candidate Joe Biden and a flop planned rally at Tulsa, Oklahoma last month where there were few attendees than that of what Parscale had predicted.

According to a source, it was Trump’s son-in-law Jarred Kushner who called Parscale about the President’s decision to replace him with Bill Stepien after the two had a meeting on Tuesday about the move.
Bill Stepien joined Trump’s first presidential campaign as a field director in 2016. He’s a former top aide of Gov. Chris Christie, a national director to John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign and political director to President George W. Bush's 2004 reelection. His name rose to fame in the Bridgegate Scandal that sinks Gov. Christie’s presidential ambition.
"The biggest thing Bill needs to do is marshal all the resources of the campaign and the RNC toward ensuring the President hits the metrics he needs to win in these battleground states. A piece of this is going to be the President articulating the vision for the next four years." a source close to Stepien said.
