The Trump White House on Friday fired its chief usher, Angella Reid, the first woman and second African-American to hold the position, reports The Washington Post. Reid was hired under President Obama in October 2011.
Asked why the Trump administration felt it necessary to let her go, Deputy Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Friday,“It’s not uncommon you might have a transition of staff when a new administration comes in and it’s certainly nothing more than that.”
“She is no longer employed here at the White House but we left on very good terms and wish for the best,” Huckabee Sanders continued.
