Three senior advisers left US President Donald Trump, who is re-running for the highest office in the state because, after a conversation with the head of the campaign headquarters Bill Stepien, they decided that their candidate would lose.
This is reported by the Axios edition.
According to the newspaper, Trump's campaign is filled with internal accusations and estimates of potential losses, which only exacerbates the gloomy mood prevailing in the headquarters, caused by the daily stream of gloomy headlines.
вЂњIn many ways, it is the president himself (to blame),вЂќ said one adviser. вЂњYou cannot cure a patient who does not want to accept a diagnosis.вЂќ
That being said, Stepien tells employees every week why they shouldn't pay attention to the consistently terrible public polls вЂ” and how they can вЂњwin the weekвЂќ and the campaign.
But in other private conversations, described by multiple sources, Stephen may seem like a somber pessimist, comparing the campaign to a plane caught in turbulence, saying, вЂњOur job is to land the plane safely.вЂќ
Three sources of the publication heard Stepien's use of variants of the analogy with the airplane, and they felt that he was deep, if not irreversibly pessimistic about the state of the election race.
вЂњItвЂ™s a bad feeling when you realize that the campaign manager deep down doesnвЂ™t think weвЂ™ll win,вЂќ said one of the sources in the publication.
