Tyler Cherry Addresses Past Posts as Part of His Transition to White House

Jack Birle, Washington Examiner, June 24, 2024

Incoming White House associate communications director Tyler Cherry is under the microscope for social media posts he made that were circulated after it was announced he had got his new job.

Cherry said in a post on X that the views espoused in the prior posts were from when he was younger and “do not reflect my current views.”

In one 2015 post, he equated police to “slave patrols,” and later that year, he allegedly claimed “the modern day police system is a direct evolution of slave patrols and lynch mobs,” according to a screenshot of posts from Cherry.

“Abolish ICE,” he allegedly said in a post from January 2018.

Another set of screenshots allegedly included multiple posts in which he appeared to take issue with the number of white people in a group or event, including questioning why Iowa, which has a majority of white people, still had the first presidential primary contest.
