Opinion: I worked for Trump, and I won’t be supporting his 2024 reelection bid

From CNN | Opinion by Gavin J. Smith

Gavin J. Smith is a public relations professional and political strategist. He is CEO of Gavin James Public Affairs, a public relations and marketing consulting firm in Lexington, South Carolina. During the Trump administration, he was press secretary for the Department of Labor and deputy communications director for the Department of Health and Human Services.

It’s unquestionable that the Trump administration, which I served in for two years, delivered a number of wins for the American people. Take, for example, its role in unleashing American ingenuity by rolling back burdensome regulations and signing the First Step Act, a major criminal justice reform bill, into law.

Despite these wins, it’s become increasingly apparent that many Republicans are growing sick and tired of Trump – and the losses his failed leadership has inflicted on the Republican Party in the last three election cycles.
