The White House Director of Communications, also known as Assistant to the President for Communications, is part of the senior staff of the President of the United States, and is responsible for developing and promoting the agenda of the President and leading its media campaign. The director, along with his or her staff, works on speeches such as the inaugural address and the State of the Union Address. The Communications Director, who is appointed by and serves at the pleasure of the President without the need for Senate confirmation, is usually given an office in the West Wing of the White House.

History[edit]

The White House Office of Communications was established by Herbert G. Klein in 1969 during the Nixon administration.[1] It was separate from the Office of the Press Secretary from 1969 to 1974.[2]

Role and responsibilities[edit]

Historically, the position of White House Communications Director is given to a senior public relations staff member of the candidate's campaign staff. Often this is either the Deputy Campaign Manager or the Campaign Communications Director. The Communications Director works closely with the White House Press Secretary, who was typically a co-worker in the president's campaign.

As the President's voice and vision must be clear, the Communications Director ensures that all aspects of communications are covered to ensure that the administration's message has been delivered successfully. A communications strategy must be devised to promote the President's agenda throughout all media outlets. This can include, but certainly is not limited to, the State of the Union address, televised press conferences, statements to the press, and radio addresses. The Office of Communications also works closely with cabinet-level departments and other executive agencies in order to create a coherent strategy through which the President's message can be disseminated.

With the growing importance of the internet and new media in terms of Presidential communication, the Office of Communications is having to branch out to utilize the internet, and more specifically social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter, in order to reach out and convey the President's vision to a larger percentage of the public.

Key staff[edit]

In March 2017, deputy press secretary Stephanie Grisham was named communications director in the office of First Lady Melania Trump.[4]
