Top Trump adviser Jason Miller is leaving his role working for President Trump to work for an unnamed tech start-up.
The report indicates that the tech start-up owns one of the social media platforms Trump will join, so it doesn’t appear that Miller is leaving Trump world completely or on bad terms.
According to The Hill:
Jason Miller, a longtime Trump campaign aide, will be leaving his role as the former president’s chief spokesperson for a job leading a tech start-up company, two people familiar with the plans confirmed Thursday.
Miller has been Trump’s spokesperson since he left office in January after working as a strategist on the 2020 campaign. He is expected to remain in Trump’s orbit, but will no longer be involved with day-to-day operations.
Trump has already started interviewing potential replacements, one official said.
It was not immediately clear which company Miller was joining, but an official said it owns one of the social media platforms Trump is considering joining after being banned from Twitter and suspended from Facebook over his incendiary and baseless claims about fraud in the 2020 election that led up to and followed the Jan. 6 Capitol riot.
Miller was a top adviser to President Trump during his campaign in 2016 and has been a staunch defender of Trump. We will provide you updates on where Miller lands once that information becomes available.
