US President Donald Trump will name one of his political strategists as campaign manager for his 2020 re-election campaign, US media report.

Brad Parscale joined the Trump Organization in 2011 as a digital media strategist.

The real estate mogul asked Mr Parscale in 2015 to create a website for his exploratory White House campaign.

His firm, Giles-Parscale, billed the Trump campaign $94m (£68m) for its work on the 2016 election, reports CNBC.

The Republican president filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission shortly after his inauguration last year to form a committee for a re-election bid.

Mr Trump’s campaign fundraising has been ongoing, raising $22m by the end of 2017.

It is little surprise that an incumbent US president would run for a second term, as White House press secretary Sarah Sanders made clear last year.

“Of course he’s running for re-election,” she said in June 2017 during a press briefing.
