Brad Parscale, a campaign advisor to US President Donald Trump who was until recently his campaign manager, has resigned as an adviser after being recently arrested outside his home, a member of Trump’s campaign team reports.
Parscale was arrested on Sunday after his wife called the police. He would have hit her and threatened to hurt himself.
As a manager, Parscale was primarily responsible for President Trump’s reelection campaign but was pushed aside this summer.
That happened after a campaign rally in the city of Tulsa, Oklahoma, attracted fewer visitors than Trump had hoped. He then took on an advisory role on the Republican president’s digital campaign.
In a statement to news site Politico, Parscale says he is seeking help for what he calls “the overwhelming burden” on him and his family.
