The White House announced Tuesday that President Trump intends to appoint former White House press secretary Sean Spicer and ex-chief of staff Reince Priebus to be members on the President’s Commission on White House Fellowships.

Flashback: Priebus was replaced by John Kelly after serving the shortest non-interim stint as chief of staff in 2017. Spicer resigned from his post the same year.

  • "The Commission interviews National Finalists and then recommends those individuals it finds most qualified to the President for appointment as White House Fellows," according to the Obama White House's website.
