One major difference between Donald Trump and his predecessors is the continuation of political rallies post inauguration. Last weekend, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the president threw his 58th rally since being sworn into office.
The event was a successful one with an estimated crowd of around 10,000. The president’s campaign manager, Brad Parscale, took to Twitter to describe Trump’s Green Bay rally in messianic terms.
Parscale wrote: “Loved watching the crowd fill up for the 547th Rally in Green Bay. There has never been and probably never will be a movement like this again. Only God could deliver such a savior to our nation and only God could allow me to help. God bless America!”

The campaign head is not the only Trump surrogate to describe Trump in religious terms. Earlier this year, Press Secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, said, “I think God calls all of us to fill different roles at different times and I think that he wanted Donald Trump to become president, and that’s why he’s there. I think he has done a tremendous job in supporting a lot of the things that people of faith really care about.”
Parscale was also in the news this week due to a paid speech that he gave in Romania. The April speech has created ethical concerns. According to CNN, “Delivering paid speeches, whether domestic or abroad, is not illegal but is highly unusual for presidential campaign managers.”
Parscale also announced that the 2020 campaign will be targeting states that went blue in 2016 like Minnesota, Colorado and New Mexico.
