Donald Trump 's latest campaign shakeup misses the point, writes Paul Begala. The problem is the candidate, not the staff .

President Trump's reelection campaign has announced a staff shakeup just over four months before the general election as polls show him trailing former Vice President Joe Biden.

Michael Glassner, who organizes Trump's rallies, is being reassigned to a legal role within the campaign, and Jeff DeWit, a former Arizona state treasurer and Trump's 2016 Arizona chair, will come on as chief operating officer.

The shakeup, which was first reported by Axios and confirmed by a campaign official to The Hill, comes after a rally two weekends ago in Tulsa, Okla., where the president garnered embarrassing headlines after being unable to fill the arena and several campaign staffers contracted the coronavirus.

The campaign said that 36% of its senior staff are people of color, but did not disclose how much of its overall campaign staff are people of color. The campaign also noted that women are in the majority of both the campaign’s senior staff and its full staff.

A senior administration official said a further shake - up of senior staff could happen as soon as this week.

The campaign denied the moves had anything to do with the rally and indicated Glassner remains in the president's good graces. Glassner has been among original hires on the Trump campaign dating back to 2015.

"This is not a reaction to Tulsa. Michael Glassner is moving into the long-term role of navigating the many legal courses we face, including suits against major media outlets, some of which will likely extend beyond the end of the campaign. He is one of the founding members of Team Trump and his dedication to the success of the President is unmatched," said campaign spokesperson Tim Murtaugh.

Many outside observers anticipated a shakeup within the Trump campaign after the Tulsa rally, which was widely viewed as a faulty event.

Speculation has also surrounded the position of campaign manager Brad Parscale, though his job is reportedly said to be safe.

The Tulsa rally was the first such event for the Trump campaign in three months after it had essentially been grounded by the coronavirus pandemic.

The campaign conducted temperature checks, provided hand sanitizer to attendees and passed out masks, but did not enforce social distancing measures and many attendees declined to put on the face coverings. Multiple campaign staffers and two Secret Service agents later tested positive for COVID-19.

The rally had already been thrust under an avalanche of scrutiny after it was initially scheduled for Juneteenth, the annual celebration of the end of slavery, in a city known for one of the worst instances of racial violence in the country's history. The president, in a rare admission of the rebukes, moved the rally one day later.

While the president is known to thrive on the raucous campaign rallies, his campaign scrapped an upcoming rally to be held in Alabama next week due to the coronavirus.
