Dan Scavino, the White House social media director who sometimes runs President Trump’s Twitter feed, has been promoted to deputy chief of communications staff, officials said on Tuesday.
The appointment of Mr. Scavino was one of the few announced by the White House as new chief of staff Mark Meadows, the fourth person to hold the post under Trump, shakes up the communications team.
It remains to be seen what the title change means for Mr. Scavino, who was one of the first assistants to the 2016 presidential campaign and who was the general manager of the Trump National Golf Club Westchester in New York.
Mr. Scavino, a constant presence whether the President is in the White House or on a trip, reports Internet content to his boss and is the only assistant to access to Mr. Trump’s personal Twitter account. He is one of the advisers whom Mr. Trump has full confidence in.
But we don’t know what his responsibilities will be in the communication workshop. Administration officials say he has traditionally not attended meetings of senior officials, such as other senior advisers, for example.
Other appointments included John C. Fleming, a doctor who served four terms as a member of the Louisiana Congress and, most recently, as an assistant secretary of commerce, who will be the president’s assistant for “planning and Implementation”.
Nick Luna, who has been Trump’s “body man,” will be the assistant to the president and chief operating officer of the Oval Office.
And two new aides, Alyssa Farah and Kayleigh McEnany, have been promoted to assistant to the president. The two began recently as assistant assistants. Ms. Farah is Director of Strategic Communications and Ms. McEnany is the new press secretary, the fourth since Mr. Trump became president.
