Former President Donald Trump has reportedly hired Susie Wiles to assist in managing his political operations.
Wiles was hired last week and is a veteran political organizer, with a resume including involvement in Trump’s 2016 campaign, Insider reported. Wiles reportedly ran the Trump campaign’s battleground state operations during 2016. (RELATED: Here Are All The 2022 Candidates Donald Trump Has Endorsed)
“She is in a position of influence right now,” one Trump adviser told Insider. “The question is: What direction does Susie take the organization?”
Wiles previously discussed how data and voter outreach helped Trump win Florida in the 2020 election, according to WJCT. In a three-page memo, Wiles emphasized communicating with voters from 2016 as well as contacting “non-traditional Republican voter groups” as part of their victory strategy in the state, according to WJCT.

“Focusing on the Trump voter from 2016 was a priority,” Wiles wrote in the memo. “Often these voters were not members of a Republican Club – sometimes not Republicans – and not drawn to GOP ideology but rather to President Trump as a brand. Re-engaging them was important and proved critical to GOTV (get-out-the-vote) and voter contact efforts.”
“Susie has been a great teammate for two successful presidential campaigns in Florida and we’re glad to have her join the all-stars already assembled. Watch out 2022!” Trump adviser Jason Miller told Insider.
