(RepublicanInformer.com)- There’s a new person serving in the position of national spokeswoman for former President Donald Trump.
This week, Trump announced that Liz Harrington, the former national spokeswoman for the Republican Party, would now be serving as his spokeswoman. She takes over the position that Jason Miller is leaving following his recent resignation.
On Tuesday, Trump called Harrington a “fighter” who was instrumental in his 2020 president campaign for re-election.
Harrington has been an ardent supporter of Trump for some time. Following November’s presidential election, she said Joe Biden wouldn’t end up being inaugurated on January 20, even after media outlets projected him as the winner of the election.
She argued at the time that the media was trying to “coronate” Biden as president when in fact he lost the election. She was on Trump’s side, too, when he claimed that there was widespread fraud going on in battleground states such as Pennsylvania, Michigan, Georgia and Arizona.
In November, she told a radio station in Kentucky:
“This complete fraud of pretending that Joe Biden is the president elect: He is not. We won. We won.”
She raised eyebrows early in 2021, too, when she stuck to her guns about the election fraud claims. About a week after the attacks on the U.S. Capitol building, she told Newsmax:
“The real insurrection … happened on November 4 at about 3:30 in the morning, when all those vote dumps were dropped. That’s when it happened. That was the overthrow.”
Now, Harrington will work more directly with Trump as his spokeswoman, a position she is not taking lightly. She released a statement on Tuesday that said:
“It is an honor of a lifetime to represent President Trump and to stand for the truth. At such a critical time for our country, President Trump’s fighting spirit is needed now more than ever. We will not stand idly by and let America fall to the Radical Left-Wing Mob.”
While Trump has been banned from communicating directly with his supporters via social media channels such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter, he has ramped up his public profile in recent months.
He seemed to take a little time off following his departure from the White House in January, but now he’s fully back in the public eye. He releases official statements from his office frequently, pushing his agenda and commenting on the issues of the day.
Many people believe Trump will eventually announce that he will be running for president again in 2024. The former president has kept that decision close to his vest thus far, though.
Publicly, he said his current focus is on the 2022 midterm elections, and ensuring that Republicans regain control of both the House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate.
He’s also working hard to make sure that the Republicans that win the GOP primaries in critical races are people who are loyal to him and his agenda. In that regard, he’s working hard to oust some long-standing Republican congress members, such as Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski and Wyoming Representative Liz Cheney.
