“For the past 5 days I have been working remotely and isolating myself, testing negative every day until yesterday,” Miller said in a statement. “Today I tested positive for COVID-19 and am in quarantine.”
Miller, who served as communications director for then-Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ark.) Before joining the 2016 Trump campaign, is the president’s loudest voice in the White House on limiting immigration, his main political concern. But Miller has formed close working relationships with colleagues in the West Wing, most notably Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser.
The west wing, especially the press office, has become a coronavirus hotspot in recent days, with councilor Hope Hicks, press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and four McEnany aides performing positive in the past week. At least 34 people Trump-related have tested positive for coronavirus in recent days.
