The man, responsible for the digital operations for President Trump’s campaign, denied on Tuesday that Russian agents played a role in the Republican election victory last November.
Brad Parscale denied that his team made the use of the Russian computer programs to potential voters with positive stories about Trump and negative stories about the Democrat, Hillary Clinton.
“The data that we have in this campaign came directly from the Republican National Committee and what they did after the 2012 election to build a record, as never seen before,” Parscale “tells The story with Martha MacCallum.” “We don’t need the data, we don’t need it from anyone else. It was right here in the United States of America and the best data is right here.”
Parscale said that reports about the Trump campaign, the alleged transactions with Russian officials was a “false narrative” pushed by the Democrats in reaction to Clinton’s surprise defeat.
“You don’t want to said to believe that their candidate was so bad that this is even possible,” Parscale. “And the truth is that the data was already there and we only used to beat a bad candidate, a great candidate.”
Parscale also defended Jared Kusher, the President of the senior adviser and son-in-law, after a series of reports suggested that Kushner had tried to establish a secret communication channel between Trump, the transition team and the Kremlin.
“This is a guy who really cares about me [and] all on the campaign,” Parscale said. “You hate to see that happen, good Americans and people who move to the country to the front … I can’t believe it.
