WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Brad Parcel, a former campaign manager for US President Donald Trump, has resigned from a senior role in the campaign after being arrested at his home in Florida, a campaign official said on Wednesday.
Parcel was taken into custody by police at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, after he received reports from his wife, Candice, that he might harm himself.
Parscal was Trump’s campaign manager for his re-election efforts, but during the summer after a rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, he received a backlash from people predicting between epidemics.
He went into the campaign’s digital endeavor by creating ads to help Trump ahead of the Nov. 3 election.
Porcelain said in a statement issued to Politico that he was withdrawing from the re-election effort and was seeking help for what he and his family called “overwhelming stress”.
