Michael Glassner , deputy campaign manager for Donald Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign attends an event on foreign policy in Washington on Wednesday April 27, 2016 in Washington, DC, USA.

Aides began making plans to put Glassner in this new role following the rally on June 20 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where the President spoke to an unfilled arena — a scene about which he has continued to fume. Though there were questions about campaign manager Brad Parscale’s future, Glassner was seen as a potential target as well, given the prominent role he played in orchestrating these events.

A source told CNN that Trump’s son-in-law and White House adviser, Jared Kushner, was involved in the decision.

CNN has reached out to the Trump campaign for comment.
