President Trump’s campaign is shaking things up.
The campaign has moved its chief operating officer Michael Glassner to a new role.
Glassner who was previously in charge of planning the President’s rallies will now be involved in a legal role.
It’s believed Glassner’s reassignment is due in part to how the recent Tulsa rally went which the campaign denies
The shake up and Glassner’s reassignment are in part a result of how badly things went in Tulsa, sources tell ABC News.
“This is not a reaction to Tulsa. Michael Glassner is moving into the long-term role of navigating the many legal courses we face, including suits against major media outlets, some of which will likely extend beyond the end of the campaign. He is one of the founding members of Team Trump and his dedication to the success of the president is unmatched,” Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh said in a statement to ABC News.
The New York Times reported that the change was made by Jared Kushner.
Confirming @jonathanvswan scoop – one person briefed on what happened said Glassner is being blamed for things he wasn’t involved w in Tulsa, that Trump didn’t know he’s being made the fall guy and that it’s unwarranted. https://t.co/jXkhNTNIZD

Glassner, who has worked for the Trump campaign since 2015 will be replaced by Jeff DeWit who served as Trump’s 2016. Arizona chair and NASA’s Chief Financial Officer for two years.
