Liddell, who joined the administration during the transition, has managed its efforts to modernize the government's information technology systems and helped decrease the number of government regulations. He was also involved with the White House Office of American Innovation, which was led by Jared Kushner — a senior adviser and the president's son-in-law — and tasked with advising Trump “on policies and plans that improve government operations and services, improve the quality of life for Americans now and in the future, and spur job creation.”
“Chris is widely respected across the administration and is highly qualified to oversee and coordinate our policy process,” Sanders said in a statement. “We look forward to having him in this new role.”
Liddell was one of the people Trump considered naming as his top economic adviser after the first person to hold the job, Gary Cohn, quit earlier this month. Trump ultimately picked Larry Kudlow, a CNBC television commentator, for the position.
