Former Trump Campaign Manager Hospitalized After Self-Harm Attempt

Former Trump Campaign Manager Hospitalized After Self-Harm Attempt”

President Donald Trump's former campaign manager Brad Parscale was detained by police in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on Sunday after barricading himself in his home and threatening to harm himself, according to a police statement. A furious Mr Trump was left staring at a sea of empty seats and, weeks later, promoted Bill Stepien to campaign manager. When officers arrived on the scene, they made contact with the wife of the man who told them her husband was armed, had access to multiple firearms inside the house and was threatening to harm himself.

"ABC News has confirmed President Trump's former 2020 campaign manager, and current campaign senior advisor, Brad Parscale, was taken into custody this evening by Fort Lauderale Police after allegedly threatening to harm himself at his home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida", reported ABC senior editorial producer John Santucci.

"We went out and it was very short".

Parscale was taken to the Broward Health Medical Centre for a Baker Act, a Florida law aimed "to provide emergency mental health services and temporary detention for people who are impaired due to their mental illness", according to the University of Florida Health website. He was taken to a hospital, she said.

"Politics aside, this fellow obviously suffers from emotional distress", Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis told the Sun-Sentinel.

In wake of Sunday's incident, Trump's Campaign Communications Director, Tim Murtaugh, issued a statement, saying that the campaign was "ready to support him and his family in any way possible".

"The disgusting, personal attacks from Democrats and disgruntled RINOs have gone too far, and they should be ashamed of themselves for what they've done to this man and his family", Murtaugh said in a statement. "We are thinking of him and supporting him during these times".

Parscale was originally hired to run the Trump 2016 campaign's digital operations by Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law. There also had been criticism of the campaign's spending decisions.

Parscale was demoted shortly after a failed Trump campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma earlier this year.
