According to The Washington Post:
White House communications director Alyssa Farah resigned from her post Thursday after three-and-a-half years in the Trump administration.
Farah, 31, began her White House tenure as press secretary under Vice President Pence, before joining the Defense Department as press secretary last September, and returned to the White House as communications director in April. She is the first person to serve in these three roles in one administration, and the youngest Pentagon press secretary.
In her resignation letter, which she delivered Thursday, Farah called her time in the administration “the honor of a lifetime” and described herself as “deeply proud of the incredible things we were able to accomplish to make our country stronger, safer, and more secure.”
“Under this Administration, the ISIS caliphate was destroyed, American hostages were returned home, NATO is stronger than ever, we’ve brokered historic Middle East peace deals, and I was on the ground in Kabul for the announcement of a historic peace deal between the Afghan Government and the Taliban aimed at ending America’s longest war,” Farah wrote.
Farah’s last day will be on Friday and she will start a communications firm dealing with corporations, politics, and defense.
