Trump pick for top communications job steps aside, citing family

Jason Miller, whom President-elect Donald Trump named as White House communications director two days ago, said in a statement Saturday he won't be taking the job.

In a surprising Christmas Eve announcement, newly appointed White House communications director Jason Miller has stepped down from his position after a Trump transition member hinted on Twitter that a sex scandal may be brewing.

In a statement, Miller said he felt he needed to devote more time to his family.

"My wife and I are also excited about the arrival of our second daughter in January, and I need to put them in front of my career", he said. Delgado added, "Jason Miller".

However, Mr. Miller added that although he can not fulfill the position asked of him by Mr. Trump, he highly recommended as his top choice press secretary Sean Spicer to be the man for the job instead.

Trump was reportedly informed about Miller's decision on Friday night.

Mill operator joined Trump's battle as senior correspondences counselor in a matter of seconds before the Republican National Convention and directed the crusade's interchanges operation all through the general decision.

Miller, who now serves as the communications director for Trump's transition team, said in a statement Saturday that he wanted to make his family a top priority. "I look forward to continuing to support the President-elect from the outside after my work on the Transition concludes".

Before joining the Trump crusade, Miller served as a top interchanges consultant on the presidential battle of Sen.
