Arlene "A. J." Delgado is a former Mediaite columnist who joined the Donald Trump presidential campaign in September 2016. She is a Harvard Law graduate who practiced law in New York City.
Delgado's writings have been published in The American Conservative, National Review, The Miami Herald, The Washington Post, Breitbart, The Daily Caller, and Fox News. She appears regularly on Hannity. She self-published her book Hip To Be Square: Why It's Cool To Be A Conservative in 2012. Delgado has written about why Latinos should vote for Trump in The Washington Post. On television, Delgado has regularly defended Trump from numerous allegations of sexual harassment. On MSNBC with Brian Williams on October 12, 2016, Delgado called the claims of women who accused Trump of assault "sickening."
The child of Cuban immigrants to the United States, Delgado is a native Spanish speaker. Her father was a bus driver; her mother worked in a factory. Delgado spoke only Spanish until kindergarten.
In October 2016, while serving as an adviser to the Donald Trump campaign, Delgado garnered national media attention when she and two Trump campaign aides were seen in a strip club the night before a presidential debate.
Delgado garnered additional national controversy in December 2016 when she publicly criticized her direct supervisor on the campaign, Jason Miller, a former Ted Cruz and Trump aide who had been appointed White House Communications Director by Trump. "Congratulations to the baby-daddy on being named WH Comms Director!" "The 2016 version of John Edwards," and "Miller needed to resign yesterday," Delgado tweeted. The same day, on December 24, 2016, Miller abruptly resigned as Trump's White House Communications Director designee and Delgado deleted her Twitter account.
