The USA: Trump fires his campaign manager
Because of his dealings with the corona pandemic and the anti-racism protests, US President Trump is lagging behind his challenger Biden. In order to secure a second term in spite of this, he is now changing his campaign manager. But that’s not the only reason.
US President Donald Trump is betting on a new campaign manager a few months before the presidential election. In the future, Bill Stepien will lead his election campaign, Trump announced on Twitter. Stepien has been deputy head of Brad Parscale, who will return to his original post as head of the digital campaign, Trump announced.
Republican Trump wants to secure a second term in the presidential election on November 3. However, he is currently behind polls behind his democratic challenger Joe Biden. According to the US website FiveThirtyEight, Trump currently stands at 42.2 percent, while Biden has 50.3 percent. Trump was increasingly criticized for dealing with the coronavirus pandemic and anti-racism protests in the country.The USA: Trump fires his campaign manager
Does the decision have to do with embarrassment in Tulsa?
US media also speculate that Trump will blame former campaign manager Pascale for his unsuccessful event in Oklahoma. Originally, up to one million people were expected in Tulsa despite the corona pandemic, which is why an outside area with a stage was built in addition to the rented stadium. But instead of being celebrated by his supporters, the president had to look at conspicuously empty ranks in the stadium. Only 6200 people attended the rally. The reason: Numerous Trump opponents had reserved tickets, only to then not appear.
This campaign was organized by so-called K-Pop-Stans – particularly passionate fans of Korean pop music. For example, teenagers were instrumental in ensuring that Trump’s first major appearance since the outbreak of the corona virus became a major embarrassment.
