Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer has accepted a new job as a spokesman and senior adviser for the pro-Trump super PAC America First Action, according to a Thursday announcement.
The news comes as Spicer, who left the White House in August, has been helping the Republican National Committee (RNC) fundraise and has been paid to give speeches across the country after signing with Worldwide Speakers Group in September. Spicer has also been working on a book that will be titled “The Briefing” and will detail his experience working for President Donald Trump in the West Wing.

Sean’s unparalleled political experience, communications savvy, and strong commitment to this administration’s agenda make him an invaluable addition to our organization.”
Spicer confirmed the news in a tweet, saying he is “Excited” to join the super PAC to “further support” Trump’s agenda.
