Biden quickly fire White House chief usher
Staff Reporter: US President Joe Biden fired White House chief usher Timothy Harleth on the first day of his term in office, according to US media reports.
As is customary in the United States, the outgoing presidents welcomed the successor to the White House, but the Trump couple did not welcome newly elected President Joe Biden and First Lady Jill Biden.
Timothy Harleth White House’s opening chief, was to welcome Joe and Jill Biden to the White House instead of the outgoing president and first lady. In 2017, Melania Trump appointed Timothy Harleth to the White House. Harleth came to the White House from the Trump International Hotel in Washington DC. There he was in charge of the room manager. She replaces Angela Reid, the Obama administration’s White House chief. Angela Reid made history in 2011 when she became the first woman to hold office. He previously served as general manager at Ritz Carlton, Pentagon City, just outside of Washington. He was fired just months after the Trump couple took charge of the White House.
The idea is that someone close to the new president and first lady, Timothy Harleth, will be appointed to the post.
