President Donald Trump has hinted in recent weeks that he may be gearing up for another run for the presidency in 2024 and his most recent move is adding more fuel to that fire.
According to a new report, the former president has hired Susie Wiles, a veteran political organizer, to help with his political operations.
“She is in a position of influence right now,” said one Trump adviser. “The question is: What direction does Susie take the organization?”
Check out what the Daily Caller reported:
Wiles was hired last week and is a veteran political organizer, with a resume including involvement in Trump’s 2016 campaign, Insider reported. Wiles reportedly ran the Trump campaign’s battleground state operations during 2016.
Wiles previously discussed how data and voter outreach helped Trump win Florida in the 2020 election, according to WJCT. In a three-page memo, Wiles emphasized communicating with voters from 2016 as well as contacting “non-traditional Republican voter groups” as part of their victory strategy in the state, according to WJCT.
In a memo, Wiles wrote: “Focusing on the Trump voter from 2016 was a priority. Often these voters were not members of a Republican Club – sometimes not Republicans – and not drawn to GOP ideology but rather to President Trump as a brand. Re-engaging them was important and proved critical to GOTV (get-out-the-vote) and voter contact efforts.”
While speaking to the Insider himself, Trump adviser Jason Miller explained, “Susie has been a great teammate for two successful presidential campaigns in Florida and we’re glad to have her join the all-stars already assembled. Watch out 2022!”
President Trump has made it clear that he has no plans of backing away from the political arena. During an interview with Newsmax over the weekend, President Trump’s former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski revealed the former president’s plan to make his own social media platform.
“It’s going to be an interactive communication tool whereby the president will be able to post things to it and people will be able to repost and communicate directly with him,” he said.
Lewandowski continued by stating that Trump supporters would be allowed to communicate with the former president without fear of being censored by the Big Tech giants.
“What we’ve seen from Big tech and the cancel culture is: if you don’t agree with their philosophy, they’re going to cancel you,” he said. “We’re going to have a platform where the president’s message of America First is going to be able to be put out to everybody and it’ll be an opportunity for other people to weigh in and communicate in a free format without fear of reprisal or being canceled.”
He continued: “The platform that the president is building is not going to rely on Amazon or Amazon servers. It’s going to be completely built from scratch from the ground up and that’s going to give him the opportunity to control, not only the distribution of it, but also participate in it. I mean that in a positive way. And that is something that the president has been working on for a long time now.”
