Trump Hires Experienced Communications Director Mike Vance June 28, 2016 News This is someone who worked along with Ted Cruz in his failed campaign. Jason Miller is the name of the man who will work as his communications director. Before working with Cruz, Miller also worked with Rudolph Giuliani's campaign to be mayor of New York and Mark Sanford's campaign for Congress in South Carolina. Previously his communications were handled by the inexperienced Hope Hicks. She was very loyal, but lacked in experience.
