Jason Miller, a longtime senior advisor to former President Donald Trump, is leaving his role as chief spokesperson to lead a tech start-up company, according to a person familiar with the venture.
Miller, who worked on Trump’s 2016 and 2020 campaigns, has served as the former president’s on-the-record spokesperson since he left office in January. Miller is expected to remain with Trump’s team, though not in a day-to-day position.
Trump has already started interviewing possible replacements.
It was not immediately clear which company Miller would be leading, but a source said it is one that currently owns a social media platform that Trump is considering using. The former president was banned from major social media outlets, including Facebook and Twitter, following the January 6 Capitol attack.
