Donald Trump replaces campaign manager after poor show at Oklahoma rally

US President Donald Trump has replaced his campaign manager.

Bill Stepien, a field director for his 2016 campaign, replaced Brad Parscale.

Parscale is reportedly being blamed internally for the poor show at the Oklahoma rally last month.

The opinion polls show President Trump trailing Democratic challenger Joe Biden ahead of November’s election.

“Brad Parscale, who has been with me for a very long time and has led our tremendous digital and data strategies, will remain in that role, while being a Senior Advisor to the campaign,” Trump wrote on Facebook.

President Donald Trump launched his comeback rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma ignoring health warnings on 20th June. However, he was greeted with thousands of empty seats. TikTok users and fans of Korean pop music groups claimed to have registered potentially hundreds of thousands of tickets for Trump’s rally and not showing up as a prank.
