Glassner, one of Trump’s longest-serving aides, is now being transferred to another position. He will assist in overseeing various legal battles in the campaign. Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh said the decision was “not a reaction to Tulsa.”
“Michael Glassner plays a long-term role and is responsible for navigating many of the legal courses we face, including litigation against major media, some of which may continue until after the campaign. He is from the Trump team One of the founding members, his dedication to the president’s success is unparalleled.”
But two people said that the reorganization was a direct result of the Oklahoma rally, and that it was perhaps unfair that Grasner was positioned as a pervert who might be a misdemeanor. Glassner has been actively arranging logistics for Trump̵
The move was a dangerous time for the president, and polls showed that he was significantly behind Joe Biden. Kushner has been effectively monitoring the White House campaign, but four months before the election, he is expected to become more hands-on.
DeWit, the former Arizona governor of finance, is a loyal supporter of Trump and played a key role in the president’s 2016 victory. Trump later nominated him as NASA’s chief operating officer, which is the post DeWit resigned from earlier this year.
DeWit has been in talks with Kushner for several weeks. In his new position, he will oversee everything from budget to events and meetings.
Trump was trapped in the White House mainly due to the coronavirus pandemic, and he has been eager to catch up. But Tulsa’s failure hindered his plan. Although no events have been scheduled, the movement has been holding smaller events.
