A former 2020 Trump campaign staffer posted to his Twitter account on Tuesday he was fired from his new job because a client to the company found out he worked on President Trump's reelection efforts.

Dawson Buchanan worked as a contract coordinator, which handles the conducting and coordinating of Trump's rallies, and had established a rapport with Private Jet Services, a private jet company. He says he was hired in January and then fired after the National Hockey League found out about his past work experience.

According to Buchanan, the NHL threatened to cancel its contract with PJS unless they let him go. 

"I was upset and disappointed, but I didn’t initially blame them for this decision. I wish they had stood up for me...they didn’t. I didn’t have any animosity towards PJS, until they tried to bully me into silence," Buchanan said.

In a profile of him from the Watauga DemocratBuchanan said he became a supporter of Trump "since the day he descended the escalator in Trump Tower in 2015. However, he likely never expected that one day he would end up working for him."

A call and voicemail message left to PJS to confirm the details of Buchanan's story was not returned in time for publication.
