White House Communications director, Jason Miller, who had been appointed by President-elect Donald Trump has just announced to Mr. Trump that he will no longer undertake this position during his presidency.
Sean Spicer, the Republican National Committee communications director who was announced on December 22 as the incoming Trump White House press secretary, will be taking on Miller's planned White House responsibilities for now, in addition to his press secretary role. He says he and his wife are expecting their second daughter in January and "this is not the right time to start a new job".
"Sean, Hope, Jason and Dan have been key members of my team during the campaign and transition", Trump said in a statement Thursday morning.
However, according to a statement obtained by Politico, Miller said the forthcoming birth of his second child led him to turn down Trump's offer.
"Steve's a machine", Trump's spokesman Jason Miller stated.
Miller had been given the job two days ago.
