A former campaign spokesman for President Biden and top Pentagon official has taken a job at TikTok.
It was first revealed in Politico newsletter on Tuesday that Jamal Brown is "joining TikTok to manage policy communications for the Americas, primarily focusing on the United States."
TikTok has not appeared to put out an official statement regarding the hiring decision, but Brown’s Twitter bio has already been updated to show his employment for the Chinese-owned social media app.
From February 2021 until February 2022, Brown served as the deputy Pentagon press secretary at the U.S. Department of Defense. He previously worked as one of three national press secretaries for Joe Biden’s 2020 presidential campaign.
