Trump Swamp: Trump Told Campaign Manager To Plug A Super PAC That Pays Them Both

A source familiar with the matter told TPM Wednesday that a “livid” President Donald Trump called his 2020 campaign manager, Brad Parscale, before the campaign released a veiled, biting statement aimed at 2016 deputy campaign manager David Bossie.

It’s Trump vs. Congress as both sides dig in
