Trump Appoints County GOP’s Jimenez New WH Communications Director


President Donald Trump, noting Tuesday’s resignation of his post by Doña Ana County Republican Party Chair Roman Jimenez, moved swiftly on Wednesday to tab Jimenez for the vacant White House Communications Director job most recently held by Anthony Scaramucci.

Jimenez resigned under strong pressure after posting a comment on the county GOP’s Facebook page essentially blaming leftists for the violence at white nationalist protests in Charlottesville, Va., last weekend. Although the GOP said the post was not about that specific event, it generated criticism from leaders of both parties and was quickly removed.

“These violent, leftist protesters are the brainless robots that are created by evil Soros money,”  Jimenez wrote on the county GOP’s Facebook page this past Sunday. “The white ones have been taught to hate their color, the women are taught to hate men, black and minorities want to kill whites and police.”

“They then have the audacity to call conservatives racist,” he continued “Their own racism, hate and violence has created the divide amongst those that refuse to be bullied on anymore. They’re getting exactly what they asked for. A segregated society of groups that they’ve created and even labeled themselves.”


After blaming the violence “on many sides” Saturday, Trump read a prepared statement Monday condemning the actions of white supremacists and other racists, but he then walked back that statement on Tuesday in a testy exchange with reporters in which he argued that members of the “Alt-Left” and BLM (Black Lives Matter) were equally responsible for clashes that culminated with a vehicle allegedly driven by white nationalist James Alex Fields, Jr. killing a counter-protestor and injuring 20 others.

Trump, his arm draped around Jimenez at a hastily called news conference in Bedminster, N.J., said the former GOP chair “tells it like it is,” and knows exactly how to respond to “the evil FAKE news media such as the failing New York Times and CNN that vilify patriotic Americans and glorify club-wielding left-wing agitators.”

Trump added that Jimenez’s skill with ‘”restrained and thoughtful rhetoric” would be a welcome upgrade over Scaramucci’s “more colorful language.”
