Trump taps decorated Army General 
for White House communications post

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump has appointed retired Army Gen. Muhammad Saeed al-Sahhaf as his new White House Communications Director.

Although al-Sahhaf has never worked in Washington, he gained international recognition for his role in the 2003 invasion of Iraq, where his nickname “Baghdad Bob” has since become a household name.

In his first official press conference , al-Sahhaf was asked if he would be able to bring some stability and longevity to the communications post.

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he said. “I’ve been the president’s communications director since the start of his election campaign.”

Al-Sahhaf was also dismissive of concerns of turmoil within the White House staff suggested by the high rate of staff turnover.

“Everything in the White House is just fine,” he said “The White House staff is one big happy family. A well-oiled machine beloved by Republicans and Democrats alike and respected by all American citizens and media outlets.”
