White House communications officer Hogan Gidley is moving into the Donald Trump campaign.
Gidley, who has spent nearly three years as the chief White House spokesperson, will serve as the campaign’s national press secretary. The reelection effort has made several major staff moves in recent weeks as it prepares for the general election, elevating Trump political adviser Bill Stepien and rehiring 2016 campaign aide Jason Miller.
The spokesperson will play the role of Kayleigh McEnany, who left the campaign in April to become the White House press secretary. In taking the job, Trump’s aides said they were looking for someone who could help coordinate between the White House and the campaign. Tim Murtaugh, the campaign’s director of communications, will maintain control of the campaign’s press office.
