Michael Glassner, organizer of the president’s rallies, has been reassigned and Jeff DeWit, who served as Arizona chairman of Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign, joins the 2020 staff as chief operating officer.
Trump 2020 Campaign Manager Brad Parscale is staying put despite reportedly taking heavy criticism after a lower-than-expected crowd turnout in Tulsa.
News of the shakeup was first reported by Axios.
Trump 2020 Campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh confirmed the staffing changes in a statement to Fox News.
“This is not a reaction to Tulsa,” Murtaugh said. “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.”
