Transcript for Trump replaces campaign manager in shake-up
To Washington now and that surprise shakeup in president trump's re-election campaign. His campaign manager suddenly demoted and replaced as the president faces tough, new poll numbers. Our senior white house correspondent Cecilia Vega has more. Good morning, Cecilia. Reporter: Hey, Michael. Good morning to you. So we're just 110 days out. This is a major shake-up. Longtime campaign manager Brad parscale demoted. He will now run the digital operation and bill stepian takes the top job involved in the 2016 campaign and was the white house political director. I'm told he's someone president trump is comfortable with but in many ways this is not a surprise. In 2016 the president had three different campaign managers. This time, though, you just mentioned it, polls showing president trump trailing Joe Biden by double digits nationally and many swing states. Of course, there was the Tulsa rally and parscale promising on huge turnout and the president was furious and the president has struggled to lay out his goals for a second term. I'm told within the past month as a new team shifted into the campaign, some believe the president has had a fire lit under him but here's the reality. No matter who the campaign manager is as one person close to the campaign just told me president trump is always going to be his own best strategist, but, George, others, you know this, close to him say that is perhaps for better or worse. We've seen that from the beginning. Thanks very much.
