According to a new report from the Washington Examiner, many former Trump aides seeking work are being denied.
Matt Schlapp, chairman of the American Conservative Union says “they are being blocked everywhere.”
Brian Walsh, a partner at PLUS Communications adds it’s “natural for the party that lost the White House, just as we saw after the Bush and Obama administrations, to spend a few months in the wilderness, so to speak.”
Per the report, Eric Dezenhall, an author and Washington communications adviser, said it is going to be hard for Trump staffers to land jobs quickly, especially with corporations, due to concerns that the White House played fast and loose with the truth.
“I had one client say to me that they’re avoiding people from ‘Trumpworld’ because they are afraid that hiring from somebody from that world right out of the gate will provoke somebody into accusing them of lying,” Dezenhall said. “The Trump crowd was able to traffic in dubious information, but they could do that as long as he was in power. When he loses that power, they’re now victims of the same character assassination.”
