US President Donald Trump has replaced his election campaign manager.
President Trump said Bill Stepien, a field director for his 2016 campaign, would take the place of Brad Parscale.
Mr Parscale who was reportedly blamed by President Trump’s inner circle for a poorly attended rally in Oklahoma last month will stay on as senior adviser.
Opinion polls showed the president is trailing his Democratic challenger Joe Biden ahead of November’s election.
President Trump’s statement on Facebook on Wednesday evening said Brad Parscale, who has been with him for a very long time and has led their tremendous digital and data strategies, will remain in that role, while being a Senior Advisor to the campaign.
Mr Parscale is said to have found himself sidelined in recent weeks after the president’s comeback rally in Tulsa flopped.
President Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump and her husband Jared Kushner, both White House advisers, are reported to have blamed him.
