President Trump’s reelection campaign has announced a staff shakeup just over four months before the general election as polls show him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden.
Michael Glassner, who organizes Trump’s rallies, is being reassigned to a legal role within the campaign, and Jeff DeWit, a former Arizona state treasurer and Trump’s 2016 Arizona chair, will come on as chief operating officer.
The shakeup, which was first reported by Axios and confirmed by a campaign official to The Hill, comes after a rally two weekends ago in Tulsa, Okla., where the president garnered embarrassing headlines after being unable to fill the arena and several campaign staffers contracted the coronavirus.
New, alarming reporting by CNN's @CarlBernstein: Trump's handling of highly classified calls with foreign heads of state helped convince some senior US officials "that the President himself posed a danger to the national security of the United States." https://t.co/zppF95cYeb

In hundreds of classified calls with heads of state, Trump was so consistently unprepared for discussion of serious issues, and so abusive to allies, that the calls helped convince some senior US officials that Trump posed a danger to US national security. https://t.co/5oO95nDIqJ
