Between an incredibly crowded Democratic primary field and the onslaught of investigations likely to be launched from a panoply of House committees, President Donald Trump is in for some bad press.

Accordingly, Trump’s campaign is looking to beef up its communications staff, possibly poaching people from the White House comms shop, according to a Wednesday CNBC report.

The Trump campaign reportedly has plenty of funds available to make hires, with $19 million on hand and another $15 million in fundraising committees.

He will hold his first official MAGA campaign rally in El Paso, Texas next week.
