Donald’s making major changes – Americans will be seeing 3 new faces a lot in 2019.
After the intense 2018 midterms, Trump has been making some major changes to his White House, like most Presidents do.
And he’s got 3 big ones that have been highly anticipated.
Firebrand U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley announced she is departing for personal reasons.
Now we know Trump is picking a rising star to take her place.
President Donald Trump will name State Department Spokeswoman Heather Nauert as U.N. Ambassador to replace Nikki Haley, Bloomberg reported Thursday.
Nauert, who was also a former Fox News anchor, has enjoyed the trust of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Ivanka Trump, and the president’s son-in-law Jared Kushner.
Her close relationship with key Trump players is a good sign. She will not be a loose cannon, or fall prey to anti-Trumpers, who still lurk in D.C.
But that’s not all.
Once the midterms settled, we learned that Attorney General Jeff Sessions was leaving his post.
While Sessions successfully led the DOJ—especially in confronting illegal immigration—he made a huge mistake early on.
He recused himself from the FBI’s Russian probe, leading to the ongoing Mueller mess. That was enough for Trump to ask for his resignation.
Word has reached us that Trump has picked his replacement. And—shocker—he’s been Attorney General before!
President Donald Trump confirmed Friday that he will nominate William Barr as his new Attorney General.
Barr served as Attorney General during the George H.W. Bush administration from 1991-1993, unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate. He is currently an attorney for Washington, DC law firm Kirkland and Ellis.
Barr once wrote that Trump was right to fire James Comey from the FBI. It appears he has a similar view on the Justice Department as the president.
The fact that Barr served another respected, conservative president is a good sign. He has experience and know-how to lead the DOJ effectively.
Perhaps he will have the guts to fire Mueller and bring this ridiculous Russian witch hunt to an end.
But then the biggest shoe dropped today, and this one’s been a long time coming.
President Trump has not been getting along great with his Chief of Staff John Kelly. Word has come down that he will be officially stepping down and making way for another man already in the White House.
White House insiders expect Chief of Staff John Kelly to resign in the coming days.
His expected replacement is Nick Ayers, the young chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence.
Ayers is a 36-year-old political wunderkind; Kelly is a 68-year-old decorated vet.
President has been telling aides to reach out to Ayers if they need things.
Clearly, President Trump is looking to fix a few problems in the White House.
He had a Chief of Staff who was so fixed in his ways, he would not follow Trump’s direction and their relationship was pretty broken. Now he’s got a young guy with lots of energy and new ideas, but also respect for the President.
He also had an Attorney General who was an experienced politician but didn’t have the foresight to head off the Mueller witch hunt. Now he’s got someone more supportive of Trump with experience as the Attorney General.
Big changes for the White House for 2019 – and they’re looking like smart moves so far.
