President-elect Donald Trump continued appointing central White House staff on Thursday, tapping communications aides Sean Spicer, Hope Hicks,Jason Miller and Daniel Scavino Jr. for key slots.
All four officials also will have the title “assistant to the president.” Mr. Spicer will serve as press secretary, and Mr. Miller will be White House communications director, the transition team said. Ms. Hicks will be director of strategic communications, and Mr. Scavino will be director of social media.
Ms. Hicks and Mr. Miller served as spokespeople for Mr. Trump during his presidential campaign. Mr. Spicer has been a communications director for the Republican National Committee but has served as a spokesman for Mr. Trump’s transition team in recent weeks. Mr. Scavino was a social-media adviser to Mr. Trump during the campaign, and Mr. Trump’s use of social media was unconventional and frequently effective at rallying his base of supporters.
Mr. Trump is expected to have a much different communications strategy than past White House teams. He hasn’t held a press conference in months and frequently weighs in on current events through his personal use of Twitter, not through spokesmen and campaign aides.
“Sean, Hope, Jason and Dan have been key members of my team during the campaign and transition,“ Mr. Trump said in a statement. ”I am excited they will be leading the team that will communicate my agenda that will Make America Great Again.”
