The State Department’s director of policy planning, Brian Hook, who disparaged Trump’s stances during the campaign, is bringing on a fellow Trump critic to work at State, The Daily Caller has learned.

David Feith, a former Wall Street Journal editorial page writer, is joining the State Department’s office of policy planning to advise Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Asia policy, a department official told TheDC Wednesday. Like Hook, who founded a foreign policy group that organized an anti-Trump letter in the campaign, Feith was not a fan of Trump during the election.

“This person wants to be president,” Feith tweeted with a link to an interview transcript of Trump and the Washington Post editorial board where Trump rambled during a conversation about using nuclear weapons. The former Wall Street Journal writer and son of Iraq War-backer Doug Feith also commented on a viral photo of Trump peeking at his wife Melania voting, and wrote, “Well she’s an immigrant.”

The former Wall Street Journal writer has been living in Hong Kong and writes mainly about Asian policy. “The new president rails against ‘globalism’ and promises a vague, unsentimental and transactional policy of ‘America First,'” Feith wrote in an article hoping the U.S. and Japan will have a good relationship.
