Former Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale accused “D-level people” and “talking heads” of being responsible for his dismissal earlier this year, adding he believes that he and the president’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, made a strong team.
“We had a plan. I always had a lot of confidence in our plan,” he told Fox News’ Martha MacCallum Tuesday. “And I think the president and Jared had a lot of confidence in the plan. And it was unfortunate that we diverged from the plan right as we came down the stretch.”
Asked about his departure over the summer, however, Parscale was adamant.
“I was removed,” he said, suggesting it came as a shock to him.
“I didn’t get a warning sign really that — no one asked me to change my plan. No one asked me to do anything different. I don’t know exactly why I was removed and why, all of the sudden, we had to challenge the plan,” said Parscale.
He also said he believes that in 2016, Kushner “was the real campaign manager,” and that he was “semi-quasi-campaign manager,” but that he could never say as much publicly.
“Jared was the real campaign manager. I was the one doing the day-to-day. And we won. And it really didn’t make sense to me why, in ’20, they had to change away from that,” he said.
“I think it’s all the D-level people, all the talking heads that are around the president that had never done anything in their life, never created a business, never built anything successful, but talked themselves into something,” he added.
“And I did it for him. I did it for the family. I did it for this country because I feel like somebody needed to be the one telling him the truth. And I think Jared did too.”
Regarding the COVID pandemic, Parscale said he believes the president made a policy error when he pushed to reopen the economy sooner instead of showing “empathy” for Americans stricken with the virus.
“I think that goes to one thing. I think it was a decision on COVID to go for opening the economy versus public empathy,” he said, calling it a “policy error” that cost Trump with suburban voters.
“And I think a young family with a young child who were scared to take them back to school wanted to see an empathetic president and empathetic Republican Party. And I think that — and I said this multiple times — he chose a different path,” he added.
