The Trump campaign announced Tuesday that Hogan Gidley is leaving his post at the White House and joining the campaign as national press secretary, beginning next month.
Gidley’s new role was previously held by Kayleigh McEnany, who left the campaign earlier this year to join the administration as White House press secretary.
Gidley has served as White House principal deputy press secretary since January 2019 and has been in the White House Communications office since October 2017.
A White House official told Fox News that the move has been in the works for about a month.
“Hogan Gidley has been at the President’s side for three years and now he joins the fight to re-elect him,” Trump campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement Tuesday. “He is a talented advocate and defender of the President and his policies and is never afraid to go into battle with hostile reporters and television hosts. Hogan is a great addition to the team and makes us even stronger.”
Gidley said Tuesday that he is “overwhelmingly humbled and deeply appreciative to President Trump for giving me a front row seat to witness history.”
