"More than 60 percent of those who served in senior positions at the beginning of the administration have exited."
Joe Hagin is the White House deputy chief of staff for operations, and the guy who led planning for Donald Trump’s meeting last week with North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.
Hagin today today he will leave the Trump administration on July 6 to work in the private sector again.
He has served in every Republican White House since the Reagan administration.
From the Associated Press:
Hagin’s departure comes as the Trump administration continues to set records for staff turnover. More than 60 percent of those who served in senior positions at the beginning of the administration have exited.
No successor has yet been identified.
A White House official said that after departing Singapore last week, Trump made a rare appearance in the staff cabin of Air Force One to praise Hagin for organizing the Kim summit and led White House staff in a round of applause. (...)
Hagin’s portfolio includes oversight of the scheduling and advance staffs, as well as the military office — including the replacement projects for Air Force One and Marine One.
Hagin told people in February he was going to leave soon. But then the Rob Porter scandal happened. Hagin was viewed as one of the few other officials in the West Wing who could lead a professional operation, and he stayed for several more months.
