Some of President Donald Trump’s top confidants are urging for campaign manager Brad Parscale to be fired and replaced with someone deemed by observers as more competent and qualified heading into this year’s election against former Vice President Joe Biden.
“People within his inner circle continue to question Brad’s ability to bring the campaign down the home stretch because of his inexperience,” a longtime adviser to the president told the New York Post.
“There’s no strategy, there’s no messaging,” the adviser added.
A Republican insider noted that Parscale was put into the position because of his connections to Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, who has been pushing the administration to the Left throughout his tenure as senior adviser. Parscale has even brought disgraced Bush-era globalist Karl Rove into the fold.

“Jared put Brad in charge of the whole thing because he is loyal to the family — not because he is a political operator,” the GOP insider said. “Brad has zero experience running a national campaign.”
Parscale has been cashing in, living a lavish lifestyle while Trump’s re-election campaign spins its wheels.
“The money stuff rankles people in a major way,” a long-time GOP campaigner told the Post, referencing Parscale’s $2.4 million mansion on a Fort Lauderdale, Fla beachfront, his new $400,000 yacht, and a stable of luxury automobiles.
Big League Politics has reported frequently on Parscale’s management and misunderstanding of the Trump base:
President Donald Trump’s campaign manager Brad Parscale told Fox Business host Lou Dobbs on Monday when he said that immigration wouldn’t be one of the top issues that Trump focuses on while trying to obtain re-election this November.
When Dobbs asked Parscale what the top three issues would be for the President on the campaign trail, Parscale claimed jobs, national security and healthcare would be what Trump would focus on. Dobbs, who has been a proponent for border security his entire career, was surprised that immigration was not included.
“You didn’t mention border security. You didn’t mention immigration,” Dobbs said.
“Well, I think on immigration he’s already in the winning column. I think that those people we already have voters. I think these other issues we have to continue to get the other voters to come across and make this a landslide victory,” Parscale responded.
