President Donald Trump has a new team of administrative assistants — and they’re going to get to work on a big day.
The administration announced Thursday that Deputy Assistant Secretary for Management and Administrative Services David S. Miller, Deputy Assistant for Planning and Policy Matthew B. Linder, and Associate Director of Administrative Services, Brian B. Davis, will be joining the Office of Management and Budget as acting assistant secretaries.
Miller was previously assistant secretary for management and policy and a deputy assistant secretary at the Department of Labor, while Linder was deputy assistant to the secretary for civil rights at the Office for Civil Rights under President George W. Bush.
Miller will be acting director of the Office on Civil Rights, which administers the civil rights law.
B.D. Davis will be deputy assistant for planning and policy.
He previously served as acting secretary of the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
“The Trump Administration has an ambitious agenda and a broad range of policy priorities,” Trump said in a statement.
“We have a team of outstanding people who will continue to help advance those goals and serve as strong advocates for the interests of the American people.”
The new administration has also tapped former Labor Secretary Elaine Chao to be the next director of DHS, which will have jurisdiction over immigration and border security.
Chao is a longtime supporter of Trump’s and a longtime critic of her boss, former President Barack Obama.
She has also said she would not run for president in 2020.
