Katrina Pierson is an American Tea Party activist and communications consultant. Pierson first came to the public’s attention in November 2015 when she was hired to be the national spokesperson for the Donald Trump 2016 presidential campaign. She also made multiple appearances on CNN as a political commentator. Since March 2018 she has worked as the senior advisor for the Trump 2020 presidential campaign.
Pierson was born on July 20, 1976 somewhere in Kansas in the United States. Her maiden name is Shaddix. Her zodiac sign is Cancer.
The evidence we’ve found online indicates that Pierson is strongly opinionated against many organized religions.
From her background we know that Katrina grew up in a covert stricken household. There were times her family lived on the welfare and did not have much support. Many believe this led to her being angry with the religion and not abiding by anything it says. She has proclaimed and considers herself as 100% not Catholic.

Just saw a commercial from Catholic Church stating that Catholic Church was started by Jesus. I bet they believe that too. #sad

She is a Republican and self-identifies with the Tea Party conservative base.
Katrina is an interesting mix of political identities. Her political idol is Malcolm X, the 1960s human rights champion who many saw as too radical. Pierson has frequently cited Malcolm X on her Twitter channel:

@iAmThugGang My idol, Malcolm X warned us about the White Liberals and those the subsidize. Psychology can create and destroy a society.

Growing up, Katrina was imbibed with education swinging to both American political parties. She had an open stance and voted for Democratic candidate Barack Obama in the 2008 election.
In January 2015, Pierson attended a meeting for Tea Party activists in Myrtle Beach with Ted Cruz. While in Myrtle Beach, she also met with Donald Trump. After meeting with Trump or his aides a few more times, Pierson introduced Trump at a campaign rally held in Dallas in September. In November 2015 she was hired as the national spokesperson for Trump.
What caused Pierson to sour on Obama and the Democrats isn’t entirely known.
Pierson received an associate of science degree from Kilgore College. In 2006, she earned a bachelors in biology from the University of Texas at Dallas. Pierson worked for InVentiv Health in 2008; the Baylor Health Care System from July 2009 to August 2011, as a practice administrator; for ASG Software Solutions, as the director of corporate affairs, from May 2011 to December 2012; and then in a variety of jobs until being hired by the Trump campaign in November 2015.
In 2012 Pierson issued a tweet wondering if the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks were planned as a false flag operation by the United States.
9/11 … An inside job?

She later recanted her statement saying that she meant to refer to the 2012 Bhengazi attacks which took place two days prior to Pierson’s tweet. (2)

Little else is known about Pierson’s current relationships with her mother or father.
In 1997, at the age of 20, Pierson was arrested for shoplifting. She pleaded no contest, received deferred adjudication, and, ultimately, a dismissal with the case sealed. She reportedly took $168 in merchandise from a J. C. Penney store in Plano, Texas. When she was apprehended Katrina had her then three-month old son with her at the time. She has said that her arrest helped her turn her life around, showing her that mistakes often come with consequences. (3)
