President Donald Trump’s reelection effort has been in full swing for months, as campaign manager Brad Pascale molds an apparatus with clear lines of communication, hierarchy and organization: in short, a model nothing like Trump’s fly-by-the-seat-of-his-pants 2016 campaign.
According to a Tuesday Politico report, campaign officials are trying desperately to avoid the embarrassing leaks and gaffes of the inexperienced team that plagued their 2016 effort.
Team Trump is also firming up campaign assets to combat the President’s dismal polling numbers and the constant turbulence that always follows in his wake. The campaign spent a whopping $2 million more than it raised from October to the end of December.
Per Politico, campaign officials expect to have 100 employees on payroll by the end of this year.
