President Donald Trump is reportedly already set to jump into the 2020 election.
On Tuesday, Trump named Brad Parscale, who served as the digital director for his 2016 campaign, the campaign manager for his 2020 re-election bid, according to reclusive commentator Matt Drudge:

In a statement on the development, Jared Kushner, a senior White House adviser and Trump’s son-in-law, described Parscale as “essential in bringing a disciplined technology and data-driven approach to how the 2016 campaign was run.”

“His leadership and expertise will be help build a best-in-class campaign,” Kushner added, according to Business Insider.
More truth: The family of @IvankaTrump @DonaldJTrumpJr @EricTrump @LaraLeaTrump @jaredkushner @realDonaldTrump were fighting every day to save this country. Every day they were the people driving the campaign. Each in a different way, but without them none of this is possible.

Parscale turned down an official role in the administration, opting instead to work as digital media director for America First Policies, a pro-Trump nonprofit focused on advancing the White House’s goals.
The decision to tap Parscale is a “bold move,” according to Drudge, coming 980 days before Election Day. The conservative media mogul called it a “historical record.”
