Trump Loses Longtime Spokesperson

( – Former President Donald Trump has a long history of steadfast loyalty to his family, friends, and associates. For instance, he stood by his former attorney, Michael Cohen, for months as federal prosecutors attempted to railroad him.

Likewise, the former president stood by former Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg, paying his salary and providing legal representation for him even though his former associate testified against him during New York’s recent witchhunts.

Most recently, Trump helped install his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, as co-chair of the Republican National Committee. Many political insiders questioned this move, but it appears to be working in the Republicans’ best interest.

Unfortunately, the wheels of time continue turning, and situations change, resulting in the departure of associates — for good or bad. Recent news reports indicated that Trump lost a longtime spokesperson.

Trump’s Longtime Spokesperson Departs

On March 13, media outlets reported that longtime associate and political operative Liz Harrington had officially left Trump’s re-election campaign team. She had served as his chief spokesperson for nearly three years. She replaced outgoing Trump loyalist Jason Miller. He served as chief spokesperson for Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and senior adviser to his 2020 re-election bid.

Harrington replaced Miller in June 2021 but had supported both of the former president’s campaigns. Trump spoke out about her background at the time, characterizing her as “a fighter.” He also stressed that she has served as an “important part” of his ability to receive the most votes of any sitting president in US history during the 2020 presidential election. Trump also attributed her for helping him receive more votes that year than he did in 2016.

A staunch supporter, Harrington previously served as the RNC’s spokesperson. She later joined the Trump campaign, serving as the organization’s national press secretary after Kayleigh McEnany left to serve as White House press secretary in early April 2020.

2020 Election Fraud Claims

Harrington was an avid supporter of Trump’s claims that the 2020 election had been stolen from him. For instance, she helped compile a 100+ page document that detailed reported voting anomalies in Georgia. An insider indicated that she worked on that project for weeks.

Trump posted a statement discussing that report on his Truth Social account in August 2023, shortly after a federal grand jury indicted him for allegedly attempting to overturn the results of the 2020 election. He claimed the lengthy document would fully exonerate him, adding that the feds never pursued the true culprits that “rigged the election.”

Newsweek spoke to an insider who confirmed Harrington’s departure. The source told the news agency that she left the Trump campaign in February. However, that individual didn’t provide any insight into the reason for her sudden departure.
