The president-elect’s team made sure he got a live feed of his rallies and held live meetings with the press and members of the media.
The president has spent a large part of his campaign and transition trying to build his team around his image as a “showman,” an image that many thought was lost during the general election.
On Friday, Trump announced that he had hired David Smiley as his communications director.
According to the White House, Smiley was responsible for overseeing communications in the transition, as well as the president-election strategy.
Smiley is one of the most prominent white supremacists in the country.
He made a name for himself in the early 2000s when he led a group called the National Policy Institute, a think tank that promoted white nationalism.
Smiley founded the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), a hate group that was labeled a domestic terrorist organization by the FBI in 2006.
Smiles website is now owned by an organization called American Renaissance, which is a white nationalist organization.
Trump’s team also decided to hire Dan Scavino, the executive director of the National Hispanic Media Coalition, to lead his transition team.
Scavino is a long-time media executive, who has worked for NBC News, ABC News, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, and Univision.
His website features a video of a white supremacist group members attacking Latino demonstrators and calling them “murderers.”
He also makes comments that are often racist, like claiming that blacks are biologically inferior to whites and calling Mexicans rapists.
Scaviaino has been a regular presence on television and in the media in recent years.
He was the executive producer of the reality show “The Real Story: How I Helped Donald Trump Win the Presidency,” which featured an interview with Trump in which he defended white supremacy.
Scávino is also a prominent Trump supporter and is reportedly working to create a Trump campaign website for the Hispanic community.
The team also had a live-streamed meeting with the media on Saturday, where the president made his first remarks to the press.
Trump said that he wants to be a leader for the American people, who want to move this country forward and make it great again.
“I want to be the leader of this country,” Trump said.
“We’ve got to be great again, and we have to have unity.
We have to get together and I think that’s what we’re going to do.”
