Within days of being let go as staff secretary to President Trump, alleged wife abuser Porter was hired by Brad Parscale, the president’s 2020 campaign manager, a source tells DailyMail.com.
In addition to leading the Trump campaign, Parscale also has a political branding and strategy business and founded a non-profit group to promote Trump’s policies last year called ‘America First Policies.’ It is believed Porter is being paid by Parscale’s company with the intention of involving him in the campaign at some point in the future.
A D.C. insider told DailyMail.com that Trump was disturbed by the media’s rush to condemn Porter and had concerns about his former aide’s sudden loss of livelihood.
The source said Trump intervened to help get Porter a job that would eventually have him working closely with his campaign.
Update: Fake news, says Parscale: “No, Rob Porter has not been hired in any capacity. I have never even thought about it. So #FakeNews”
