President-elect Donald Trump on Wednesday announced the first wave of additional members of the White House staff.

"These individuals will be key leaders in helping to implement the President-elect's agenda and bring real change to Washington," chief of staff Reince Priebus said in a statement. "Each of them has been instrumental over the last several months, and in some cases years, in helping the President-elect."

Omarosa Manigault was named assistant to the president and director of communications for the Office of Public Liaison.

  • Marc Short, assistant to the president and director of Legislative Affairs.
  • John DeStefano, assistant to the president and director of Presidential Personnel.
  • Josh Pitcock, assistant to president and chief of staff to the vice president.
