WASHINGTON (AP) -- Donald Trump has hired a top communications consultant who worked on Sen. Ted Cruz' unsuccessful presidential campaign. A Republican with knowledge of the hiring says Jason Miller will serve as Trump's senior communications adviser.

The Republican who confirmed Miller's hiring was not authorized to speak publicly ahead of the announcement and did so on condition of anonymity.

Miller is a seasoned political communications operative. Prior to working for Cruz, Miller worked on the presidential campaign of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani and on South Carolina Rep. Mark Sanford's bid for Congress.

Trump's communications has been handled by Hope Hicks, a loyal but inexperienced spokeswoman. The hire comes as Trump tries to build out his campaign for a general election and a week after firing campaign manager Corey Lewandowski.
