The head of Donald Trump’s 2016 election campaign, Brad Parscale, has been hospitalized after he, according to Florida police, threatened to commit suicide.
Police succeeded in persuading Parscale to get out of his Fort Lauderdale residence after his wife called and said he had several firearms and threatened to injure himself.
The communications director of the Trump campaign, Tim Murtaugh, says that Parscale is a member of the family, and that they will do everything to support him and his family.
Over two meters tall and with a large beard, Parscale, originally from Texas, had become an icon in Trump’s election campaign organization.
But he was demoted earlier this year when Trump was annoyed by his lavish lifestyle in Florida and because of the failed mass rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma earlier this year.
Parscale claimed he had received over a million ticket orders, but only 6,000 listeners came, and Trump ended up speaking to a sea of empty seats. A couple of weeks later, Parscale was replaced by Bill Stepien.
