President-elect Donald Trump’s Communications Director, Jason Miller, is a friend of mine. I have known him for a while now, and we have talked on many occasions during the campaign. After Trump had won the election, I knew the next Commander-In-Chief was going to take Jason with him. Miller is extraordinary and gets the job done in the most professional way possible.
Learning that he’s going to step away from the White House position was actually a shock. I know the demands of putting together a team and continuing to operate at high peak, and Jason is that type of person, but with a baby on the way, he had to weigh the pros and cons, and that’s where we are.
From The Hill:
Jason Miller, an aide to President-elect Donald Trump who was named this week as incoming White House communications director, confirmed to The Hill on Saturday that he would not be taking the job.
Miller, who is expecting a child with his wife next month, said he was turning down the job to spend more time with his family.
“After spending this week with my family, the most amount of time I have been able to spend with them since March 2015, it is clear they need to be my top priority right now, and this is not the right time to start a new job as demanding as White House Communications Director,” Miller said in a statement.
“My wife and I are also excited about the arrival of our second daughter in January, and I need to put them in front of my career.”
Miller said he would stay on through the transition and that Sean Spicer, the incoming White House press secretary, would take over his responsibilities as communications director.
Congrats on the new baby news Jason. May God bless you and your family, and I know you will only be a stone’s throw if I need anything and most importantly if Trump needs anything.
