Katrina Pierson, an American Tea Party activist and communications consultant who gained recognition as a Trump campaign spokesperson, recently told The Washingtonian that she was offered a position in the administration but claims she turned it down.
Since November 2015, Pierson has been the national spokesperson for the Donald Trump presidential campaign and a regular CNN contributor. Previously, Pierson worked for InVentiv Health in 2008, the Baylor Health Care System from July 2009 to August 2011, for ASG Software Solutions, as the director of corporate affairs, from May 2011 to December 2012. She then worked a variety of jobs until being hired by the Trump campaign.
Many assumed Pierson had a role in the Trump administration after being one of his most vocal representatives, however, nothing came to be. Now, Pierson is claiming the decision not to join the debacle that is the Trump administration was her own.
“It was funny because I think it might have been a week later … I called ’em up and said, ‘You know, I’ve been thinking about it, and I think I’m gonna go over to the c4.’ I talked to … staff, who were very disappointed. But they understood. Everybody said, ‘Do what you feel is in your heart.’”
Pierson is now a part of the pro-Trump NPO America First Policies.
