Jason Miller is leaving his day-to-day duties as former Donald Trump’s spokesman to allegedly take over as the CEO of a tech start-up company, according to a person familiar with the situation. The company owns one of the social media platforms Trump is considering as his next public communications forum. 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 making media appearances on Trump’s behalf or act in other official capacities for Trump.
Now Trump is faced with hiring a new spokesperson, a dubious position if there ever was.
The news comes just as Trump needs a public mouthpiece more than ever in the wake of the bombshell revelations that the Trump administration spied on high-profile Democrats like Adam Schiff and Eric Swalwell.
Miller’s tenure with the Trump campaign has been overshadowed by his personal life and other professional missteps he’s made since joining Team Trump during the 2016 campaign.

No names have been suggested as of yet to take over for Miller, but Trump doesn’t exactly have the deepest bench at the moment. It’s possible his former Press Secretary, Kayleigh McEnany, may be up to the task, having been the last line of defense between Trump and the media during his last months in office.
Only racist assholes need apply.

If Trump is going to be working with Miller’s new startup, it’ll be his second attempt to stay relevant with the MAGA kids after his own failed blog magically disappeared from the internet after no one was interested in anything he shared on it.
