A new hire to the Trump campaign has been fired for “failure to meet company and client expectations,” The Washington Post reports.
The hire, Matt Miller, had been on the Trump transition team, and his departure was announced late last week.
Miller, who previously worked for former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, has previously been involved in the administration’s outreach to Hispanic communities.
Trump has previously criticized the “birther movement” and other groups who say President Barack Obama was not born in the United States.
The move to fire Miller is a major setback for the Trump team, which is struggling to keep pace with Trump’s campaign rhetoric.
Trump’s administration has been plagued by turnover.
Several staffers have left over the past year, and the candidate himself has had several personal and political disagreements.
Miller was promoted to the position of executive director for campaign communications after serving as the campaign’s senior adviser and a senior adviser to the campaign.
He also served as senior policy adviser and communications director, and was also a campaign manager.
