President Donald Trump announced Tuesday the appointment of digital guru Brad Parscale to manage his bid to win re-election to the White House in 2020.
Parscale was digital director of Donald Trump's successful campaign for the White House in 2016. He has been called the "secret weapon" of that campaign.
The Trump-Pence Campaign said Parscale and the rest of the campaign, in addition to building an infrastructure for the 2020 re-election bid, also will be involved in helping Republican candidates in the upcoming 2018 midterm elections.
Trump's son Eric Trump in a prepared statement said: "Brad is an amazing talent and was pivotal to our success in 2016. He has our family's complete trust and is the perfect person to be at the helm of the campaign."
President Trump's son-in-law, Jared Kushner, who is also a senior advisor to Trump, in his own statement said: "Brad was essential in bringing a disciplined technology and data-driven approach to how the 2016 campaign was run. His leadership and expertise will help build a best-in-class campaign."
