President-elect Donald Trump chose a Spaniard, Helen Aguirre Ferré Thursday as “director of media affairs and special adviser to the president”, the transition team of the future president said.
The category of “special adviser to the president” means that Aguirre Ferré, of Nicaraguan descent, will be part of the executive leadership team closest to the New York billionaire.
As director of media affairs, Aguirre Ferré will also be integrated into the office of future White House spokesman Sean Spicer.
So far, Aguirre Ferré has been the director of Hispanic communication for the Republican National Committee (RNC), executive of the Republican Party.
She began as RNC’s Hispanic Communications Director on June 7 and previously worked for Republican Jeb Bush Florida’s former governor, son and brother of ex-presidents, who was originally a favorite for the election but had to retire in February of last year.
With more than 25 years of experience, the veteran journalist directed the radio program “Political Zone with Helen Aguirre” in Uni-vision America Radio, in addition she appeared regularly in the gatherings of PBS News Hour, CNN Headline News, NBC6 Miami, Newsmax, Univision and Telemundo.
Congratulations to Miami’s own Helen Aguirre Ferre named Special Assistant to President Elect Trump & director of Media Affairs.
