A new report out from Axios reports President Trump is considering a “broad shakeup” of his White House team.
An aide told Axios that “[t]hings are happening, but it’s very unclear the president’s willing to pull that trigger.”
The “things” the aide is referring to is the replacement of current Chief of Staff Reince Priebus who has received mixed reviews from Republicans and Trump’s base.
Reince previously served as Chairman of the Republican National Committee from 2011 to 2017. Prior to that Reince served as chairman of the Republican Party of Wisconsin. He’s known for having tight ties with Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Right to work freedom fighter Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.
According to the report, the alleged list of replacements for Reince Priebus include:
–Wayne Berman, American businessman and lobbyist, served in senior roles to both George W. Bush presidential campaigns
–Gary Cohn, investment banker, currently serves as chief economic advisor to Donald Trump and as Director of the National Economic Council, formley COO of Goldman Sachs
–House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, Congressman from California since 2007, previously served in the California legislature
–David Urban, longtime GOP operative, served as the late Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Spector’s Chief of Staff, was a key part of Trump’s victory in PA.
Current Chief of Staff Reince Priebes nor the White House has responded the report.
