Trump campaign hires new chief operating officer

President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is changing things up just four months before the general election. The campaign has brought Jeff DeWit, Trump’s 2016 Arizona chair, on as chief operating officer.

DeWit replaces Michael Glassner who is being reassigned to a legal role within the campaign.

“Michael Glassner is moving into the long-term role of navigating the many legal courses we face, including suits against major media outlets, some of which will likely extend beyond the end of the campaign. He is one of the founding members of Team Trump and his dedication to the success of the President is unmatched,” said campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh.

The move comes after the president held his first rally in months in Tulsa, OK where the venue was nowhere near capacity and several staffers contracted COVID-19. The president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner is said to be behind the change.

The campaign says the staff changes have nothing to do with the rally and indicated Glassner remains in the president’s good graces. Glassner is one of the original Trump campaign hires dating back to 2015.

DeWit is a Trump loyalist who played a key role in the president’s 2016 election. He was then nominated to serve as chief operating officer at NASA where he served until earlier this year. In his new position, he will oversee everything from budgeting to planning events and rallies.

GOP insiders have become increasingly worried about the president’s reelection campaign due to his polling numbers continuing to drop. The president, however, has said the polls are all rigged and points to 2016 as an example of not to believe what the mainstream media is reporting.

“95 [percent] Approval Rating of President Trump in the Republican Party. I would imagine the 5 [percent] are the RINOS’ [sic] and stupid people who don’t want to see great Judges & Supreme Court Justice’s [sic], a new & powerful Military, Choice for Vets, 2A Protection, big RegulationCuts, Life, & much more,” Trump tweeted.

The president’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, has also taken heat the last couple of weeks with some calling for his replacement, but the Trump campaign says there is not plan to remove him.

“HUGE fundraising for @realDonaldTrump in June! Record $131M – eclipsing any single month in 2016. Record $266M in Q2. $295M cash on hand. $947M total raised Americans voting with their wallets, supporting the President,” tweeted Parscale.

Despite having to cancel campaign rallies this week and next the Trump campaign has not said it will do away with them for good. Democrat Joe Biden made the announcement on Tuesday that his campaign will not hold rallies. Both campaigns are continuing to adjust to the coronavirus pandemic.

    Isn’t it funny that when President Trump makes an appearance there is a spike in Chinese virus outbreaks? However, rioting, violent protests, and mobs destroying our heritage goes unnoticed, and even praised by our countries internal enemies. We must put a stop to this now and forever.

    I hope the Trump campaign continues with rallies – maybe switching to outdoor venues! But,definitely need to keep the rallies because his supporters love to see him in person and celebrate their support for him!

    Propaganda is mainstream in every media source. Ignore it or get used to it, it’s all about thought control. Use the mind, not emotion, to control yourself when reaching any decision. Consider the great minds that created this nation and read the United States Constitution. Should it be unacceptable and contrary to one’s beliefs, then immigrate to a communist country and learn firsthand what oppression really is.

    Love Our President! The silent majority are behind him 100%. Democrats are trying to hijack Our Country with Antifa & BLM, which are a totally Democrat backed.
    He’s the only one who can bring Our Country back! Despite the fake polls. President Trump will win the election for a second term and bring Our Country back from the brink of disaster, all created by the desperate Democratic Party.

    J. Kushner’s involvement raises concern for me.

    Reading and listening to people that seem to know, Jared Kushner, is some of President Trump’s problems. Maybe he is too close to the President or maybe his has ideas that aren’t exactly the way Trump himself would have done. We fought for President Trump because of his strong actions as our leader. He knows his base more than anyone and right now his personal oversight is important. Dr Fauci is one of the examples of taking over the President’s role. Everyone listened to him more then Trump, not good. His base doesn’t like Fauci because he wasn’t supportive, at least in public. He even had a following and his info wasn’t consistent. Much of Trumps base is scared right now because of all the riots, murders, and terror being carried out. It is time for him personally to give hope, strength and how we are going to win, win, win..We need positive input.

    I don’t believe any of the polls. I think the silent majority has grown so large that the country can barely hold them all. There are so many great black people that are sharing their story – like Candace Owens, Leo Terrell and so many more – yet the people that listen to them may not be waving flags, posting yard signs or answering poll questions truthfully – if they even get called. PLUS all the Trump supporters from 2016 are still HERE!! I give what I can but I promise that this year, I will be voting STRAIGHT REPUBLICAN! God Bless America, God Bless our President Trump!!!

    The Democrat Party is hardly recognizable now. It is completely different from say two decades ago. The extreme liberal Democrat party will undoubtedly reverse anything they can that Trump has done well by America. In addition, Trump is clearly the best chance we have to restore the economy (that Trump built up so quickly before the damned virus). Do we want to become a Socialist country, which is the way we were heading under Obama – along with high taxes, weakened military, and laughing stock image by other countries? We have recently seen first hand how the Democrats have reacted to national crises, along with protesting that got out of control — they not only mishandled it, they even encouraged them! A vote for Biden & Co. is a vote for all these things and much more — all very bad for our country and the future. I for one want to give our kids and theirs an opportunity to flourish. You may be certain they will not have those opportunities under Democrat management. Like him or not, Trump is by far our best option, and looking ahead we will need a like-minded Republican president to follow him in 2024 and beyond. For love of God and country, please vote for Trump and support Republican candidates up and down. It is critical.
