The Trump campaign has reportedly parted ways with top adviser Susie Wiles in Florida.

According to The Hill:

The Trump campaign reportedly has parted ways with Florida adviser Susie Wiles after a behind-the-scenes power struggle that involved Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R).

DeSantis encouraged the Trump campaign to remove Wiles as the top adviser in Florida to place his own allies in higher state GOP positions, Politico reported.  

Two senior Republicans told Politico that the governor of the traditional battleground state made it evident that he wanted Wiles dismissed. 

Wiles, who assisted Trump's 2016 campaign in Florida, has sparred with allies of DeSantis, including his chief of staff Shane Strum and his wife Casey DeSantis, Politico reported.

Wiles has cited health concerns for her stepping away while also stating that she does support President Trump's re-election even though she will not take an active role in it.
