The Drudge Report is out with a political scoop: President Trump has chosen his campaign manager for 2020. Trump is expected to formally announce the selection of his digital operations chief, Brad Parscale, on Tuesday. The AP confirms, adding that Parscale, who is close to Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner, ran the 2016 campaign's digital operations. Drudge sees the announcement as historical in that it means Trump is announcing his plans to run for re-election nearly 1,000 days before Election Day, a record. Still, the AP sees the fact that Trump is running again as not much of a surprise, given that he filed the appropriate paperwork on the same day as his inauguration. (More President Trump stories.)
