Donald Trump, President of the United State has sacked the first black female chief usher at White House. Angella Reid.
It was learnt that White House residence staff were shocked with the news when they arrived at work Friday morning and were told that Reid had been fired.
In a swift response, the White House deputy press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Reid ‘left on very good terms and we wish her the very best.’
‘It’s not uncommon that you might have a transition of staff when a new administration comes in. And it’s simply nothing more than that,’ she claimed.
Angella Reid’s job involved handling everything from the large staff of butlers, maids, chefs, florists and electricians to fiscal, administrative and personal duties was employed in 2011 by former President Obama.
Her position was usually a long tenure job. There have only been 9 Chief ushers in the White House since the 20th century.
