Parscale Steps Back From Trump Team    10/01 06:13


   WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump's former campaign manager is 
stepping away from the reelection campaign days after he was hospitalized after 
Florida law enforcement officials said threatened to harm himself.

   Brad Parscale, one of Trump's closest political aides, served as the 
campaign manager for the reelection effort until July, when he was demoted by 
Trump. He remained a senior adviser. Parscale's break with the Trump campaign 
was first reported by Politico and was confirmed Wednesday by a campaign 

   On Sunday, police officers talked Parscale out of his Fort Lauderdale home 
after his wife called police to say that he had multiple firearms and was 
threatening to hurt himself. He was hospitalized Sunday under the state's Baker 
Act, which allows anyone deemed to be a threat to themselves or others to be 
detained for 72 hours for psychiatric evaluation.

   Parscale's firm developed websites for Trump's personal businesses before 
working on his 2016 presidential campaign, where he was credited with 
overseeing the campaign's largely unnoticed --- but influential --- social 
media efforts that helped promote Trump to the Oval Office.
