On the heels of a campaign staff shake-up that resulted in a new chief executive officer and a new campaign manager, Donald Trump will now have some direct help from the Republican National Committee in the form of one of its top officials.

According to the Washington Times
,  Sean Spicer — the chief strategist and communications director for the RNC — will work three or four days a week at Trump Tower to help the campaign shape its message. Spicer will start his new role after Labor Day.

Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway, campaign CEO Steve Bannon, and RNC boss Reince Priebus put together the agreement as Trump and the Republican Party begin the final two months of the presidential campaign before the November election.

Spicer will work with Conway, Bannon, and senior communications adviser Jason Miller, reports the Times. He will not be paid by the campaign but the RNC will keep him on its payroll.

Never before, according to the Times report, has an official this high at the RNC worked so closely with a presidential campaign.

"We need to make sure the entire team, not just RNC and campaign, know where we're going," Spicer told the Times. "All the top surrogates and all Republican leaders — that means Washington and in the states — they all have to understand where we're headed and what's around the corner."

Also working for the Trump campaign is former Republican Rep. Michele Bachmann, who is advising Trump on foreign policy

The Trump campaign sent out a questionnaire to supporters Monday, mostly asking about Democrat Hillary Clinton and how the campaign should move forward with its attacks on her. It was the third poll sent to Trump supporters in a week.

Trump's stance on immigration is currently on hold as he firms up his policy and message, but Conway confirmed this week Trump would obey the nation's existing immigration laws if he wins the presidency.

Trump and the RNC were once at odds over Trump's messaging and some of his campaign promises, but the parties are now working together in a joint effort to defeat Clinton for the White House.
