President Donald Trump has picked a digital guru who built his career in San Antonio to run his 2020 re-election campaign.
EDITOR’S NOTE: Say what you will about Donald Trump, but now matter how the Left tries to take him down, he just keeps on coming straight ahead, and oh yeah, winning every time. This news of his announcement to seek re-election, 980 days before the start of the 2020 campaign, has absolutely stunned the Russian Collusion – Fake News Media crowd.
Brad Parscale, whose San Antonio web design firm played a leading role in Trump’s digital efforts in the 2016 race, will be campaign manager for 2020. Parscale worked for Trump long before he became a political candidate, and Parscale’s firm was paid millions of dollars during the 2016 campaign.
Former George W. Bush speechwriter Matt Latimer is confident of the president’s chances. “Donald Trump is on track to win reelection,” he argued in Politico Magazine over the weekend. “He’s cut taxes. He’s rolled back regulations. He’s put ISIS on its heels. The economy and the stock market are humming along again, despite recent turmoil.”
“Brad was essential in bringing a disciplined technology and data-driven approach to how the 2016 campaign was run,” said Trump’s son-in-law and advisor, Jared Kushner, in a press release. “His leadership and expertise will be help build a best-in-class campaign.”
The decision, first reported by The Drudge Report and later confirmed in a press release, comes nearly 1,000 days before the 2020 election, and Trump changed campaign managers multiple times during the 2016 race. But early on, it places a Texan in one of the most prominent positions of the 2020 cycle.
The Trump campaign also said it plans to be engaged in the 2018 elections, “providing candidates with general support, endorsements, and rallying the support of the political grassroots by engaging Trump supporters in districts and states.”
Parscale did not respond to a phone message and an e-mail seeking comment.
Parscale is a Kansas native who graduated from Trinity University in San Antonio in 1999. He began working for Trump in 2011, starting with some contracts in real estate. He created Trump’s exploratory website, and worked to hire contractors, buy advertising and manage small-dollar fundraising efforts during Trump’s 2016 campaign.
In a press release, the president’s son Eric Trump said Parscale “has our family’s complete trust.”
Parscale has also been a big player in the San Antonio tech scene, though his efforts supporting Trump turned off some in that community. He was involved in the effort to bring the ride-sharing service Uber back to that city after a tussle over local regulations. The radio station WOAI called him the “public face of the city’s breathtaking Tech Evolution of 2015” when it named him San Antonian of the year.
After the 2016 election, Parscale remained in the president’s orbit. A Trump-supporting super PAC paid him more than $130,000 in 2017, according to the Federal Elections Commission. That payment was for digital design, fundraising and consulting work, according to the report.
The finance reports also indicate that Parscale may have relocated outside of Texas. The super PAC’s expenditures are directed to the firm Parscale Strategies, which lists an address in Pompano Beach, Florida, less than an hour drive from Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. source
Due to rising operating costs we have decided to extend our fundraiser to the spring

NTEB has been hit with some serious bills related to our operating costs in 2018, the price of everything is going up! So we have prayerfully decided to extend our fundraiser into the springtime, specifically to May 14th, 2018. Without your generous support of this ministry, we would not be able to continue operating.
When you contribute to this fundraising effort, you are helping us to do what the Lord called us to do. The money you send in goes primarily to the building of the recording studio, but it also goes to the overall daily operations of this site. When people ask for Bibles, we send them out at no charge. When people write in and say how much they would like gospel tracts but cannot afford them, we send them a box at no cost to them for either the tracts or the shipping, no matter where they are in the world. Even all the way to South Africa. We even restarted our weekly radio Bible study on Sunday nights again, thanks to your generous donations.
Personally, I hate having to hold a fundraiser, I truly do. If I had them money I would give it all personally and never ask anyone for a penny. In fact, I have given everything I have to this ministry. But the Lord knows better than I do, and I believe with all my heart that He is asking all of you to invest in this ministry as well.
But whatever you do, don’t do nothing. Time is short and we need your help right now. If every one of the 12,426 people on our daily mailing list gave $2.50, we would reach our goal immediately. If every one of our 151,913 followers on Facebook gave $1.00 each, we would reach 600% of our goal. The same goes for our 13,500 followers on Twitter. But sadly, many will not give, so we need the ones who can and who will give to be generous. As generous as possible.
“Thank you very much!” – Geoffrey, editor-in-chief, NTEB
