Presumptive Republican nominee Donald Trump has a new senior adviser for communications — but the new hire hasn’t always been a Trump fan.
Jason Miller was brought aboard the Trump campaign Monday after having once worked in the same role on Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s GOP presidential campaign.
As other media outlets were quick to point out, Miller was an outspoken critic of Trump, especially on Twitter. But you wouldn’t necessarily know that now by looking at his Twitter feed. That’s because the barrage of negative tweets Miller once sent out about his new boss have apparently been deleted. However, because it’s the internet, nothing is ever truly deleted.

On more than one occasion, Miller referred to Trump as “#SleazyDonald.” In another tweet about Trump walking back comments about punishing women who get abortions, Miller called Trump the “Carl Lewis of flip-flopping,” adding, “I have literally never seen anyone move with such speed.”
And he didn’t stop there. Miller went on to question the foreign policy credentials of the man who would eventually become his boss, saying of Trump’s famous April 27 “America First” speech, “So which lobbyist wrote Donald Trump’s foreign policy speech today, and what foreign companies have they done work for?”
Miller is a vice president at Jamestown Associates, a Washington, D.C.-area campaign consulting firm. He worked on the presidential campaign of former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani (R). He also worked for newly elected Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin (R) and South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford (R), according to Bloomberg.
