The former senior adviser to Donald Trump has described his time working under the ex-President as like riding a “rollercoaster without a seatbelt".

Jason Miller worked under Mr Trump from 2016 to 2021 and played a key role in his 2020 Presidential election campaign.

Speaking to Nigel Farage live on GB News, Mr Miller lifted the lid on what it was really like to work under one of the most influential figures of the 21st century.

He said: “I usually liken it to being on a rollercoaster with no seatbelt, you never know if you’re going up or going down and sometimes, you’d have both multiple times in the day.

“Every day I would have to call him at 6.30 every morning and we’d go through the first half an hour of Fox News, CNN, CNBC, Washington Post, New York Post, Wall Street Journal, USA Today, New York Times and he would’ve read it all.

“He would ask me questions such as: 'What are they talking in the papers today?'

"It became clear within about a minute that he knew everything that was going on.

“What he wanted was my take on what was big, what his base was going to be concerned about. So how do you keep up with that?

"I was up at 5 o’clock, 5 30 in the morning just to read and prepare to call him at 6.30 in the morning and that was just the beginning of the day."

Mr Miller also explained how he dreaded the Twitter notification bell early in the morning, because it meant Mr Trump was active.

He added: “Sometimes the ding would go off on Twitter, (I would think) uh oh he’s awake and he’s tweeting.

“My wife would just say, you’re going to have a tough day. It’s 5am and he’s tweeting, uh oh.”
