One of the most persistent rumors about the current president of the United States is that he doesn’t enjoy his job and would much rather sit in front of the television with his 12 cans of diet coke a day.
However, he just proved everyone wrong by announcing his plans to run for the office in 2020 for the second term – well, he didn’t say it overtly but we have some solid evidence which proves that Trump is not going back to his real estate business anytime soon.
Trump’s Approval Ratings Rise Amidst Plans for Re-run
Donald Trump is convinced that he will make America great again, but in order to do so, he needs to keep his office for at least another four years. On Tuesday, the president did something that convinced everyone about his plans to run for a second term in 2020: he appointed his old friend Brad Parscale to be his campaign manager for the next presidential elections. Who was surprised by the decision? Literally, no one.
According to a news report, Trump approached the former veteran Brad Parscale to oversee the campaign effort for 2020 elections and ensure that he stuns the world yet again by becoming victorious. The sudden move came in the midst of the current gun-control crisis when Trump’s decisions to change the gun laws were met with a stumbling block.
However, the daily tracking poll suggests that Trump’s approval ratings have climbed higher than those of Former president Barack Obama, with more than half of the American voters admitting that they’re satisfied with Trump’s performance as a president. This ought to give the Republican Party a boost of confidence that Donald Trump might just do the impossible yet again and become president for the second time.
Newly Appointed Campaign Manager
It was the Drudge Report which first broke the news of Parscale’s crucial role in 2020 elections. The website deemed the story of Trump’s ‘advance planning’ as exclusive news coming almost 2 years prior to the presidential race. Parscale is no stranger to campaign planning as he had already worked for Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign as a digital director whose job entailed overseeing online advertisements, social media marketing and television purchases.
Parscale’s role didn’t end after the 2016 elections. After taking the office, Trump recruited his help for launching America First Policies and promoting the agenda outside the White House. Trump campaign made a statement earlier this week explaining that the campaign’s agenda is to provide the candidates with the support they need during the midterm elections in 2018 as well as engage Trump supporters around the country in preparation for the 2020 rerun.
Support from the Presidential Family
Eric Trump, who acted as the campaign spokesperson, praised the new manager by saying that his father’s success in 2016 would not have been possible without Parscale’s efforts, and the team is hopeful for a second victory for their candidate with Brad at the helm of the campaign. The president’s son-in-law, who also serves as his senior advisor inside the White House, chimed in by saying that the family trusts Brad’s expertise and leadership skills which could help in building an even better presidential campaign in 2020.
During an interview on ’60 Minutes’ in October 2017, Parscale had already revealed Trump’s plan to run for a second term in 2020. News reports are speculating that Trump’s decision to go for a rerun came after his trip to the Sheffer Corporation where he threatened that if he didn’t get the support he needed from the Democrats, he’ll punish them through the 2020 elections.
Even though the Rasmussen daily poll showed that Trump’s approval rating had sky-rocketed after his decision to change gun laws, the polls from other news agencies such as CNN and USA Today show a different story altogether. According to the two agencies, the current president’s approval ratings fall below 35 per cent, the lowest they have ever been since he first took office. Despite the rumors of a collusion between Russia and Trump’s campaign, Parscale rejected the idea of Russian intelligence agencies influencing the elections through digital campaign.
