TOPEKA, Kan. (KSNT) — Former campaign manager for President Trump, Brad Parscale, has stepped down from his re-election campaign, according to a report from NBC News Wednesday evening.
Parscale confirmed the news in a statement, saying, “I am stepping away from my company and any role in the campaign for the immediate future to focus on my family and get help dealing with the overwhelming stress.”
The former campaign manager was taken to the hospital on Sunday after his wife reported that he was armed and threatening to harm himself, authorities said.
When police arrived at his Fort Lauderdale home they found multiple guns. Parscale was then taken into custody under state guidelines allowing for an involuntary mental illness commitment, police reports showed.
