President Trump filed the necessary paperwork to launch his re-election committee on Jan. 20, 2017 – the same day as his inauguration – leaving little doubt of his intentions to run for re-election in 2020.

Tuesday morning, the announcement was made that the president has already chosen his campaign manager for his 2020 re-election bid: Brad Parscale, who previously worked for the Trump Organization and was Trump’s top digital operations adviser during his 2016 campaign.

The Trump campaign released the following statement from Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel: “President Trump is delivering on his promises for a stronger more prosperous country. … We’re committed to continuing this fight for our country by President Trump’s side and I’m thrilled Brad will help lead the effort.”

The Associated Press reported:

Parscale, an Austin-based digital consultant and ally of Trump son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, ran the Trump campaign’s digital operations in 2016, which included sophisticated social media targeting. He previously worked for the Trump Organization.

In an interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes” last year, Parscale described how a team that grew to 100 people created 50,000 to 60,000 ads on Facebook daily to reach different swaths of Trump supporters to maximize support and online donations.

In a statement, Eric Trump, the president’s middle son who has taken on a large role in the campaign, said, Parscale “has our family’s complete trust and is the perfect person to be at the helm of the campaign.”

NBC’s Andrea Mitchell posted a statement on Twitter, dramatically announcing that Parscale is “VERY close to Jared Kushner and the rest of the Trump family.”
