White House ‘rapid response’ director quits — and it takes Trump staff three days to admit it
After three days, the Trump administration admitted this week that Andy Hemming, the White House director of rapid response, has quit.
Politico Playbook reported on Thursday that the former RNC research staffer had left his rapid response post Monday on terms that were “mutually agreed upon.”
Although Hemming declined to comment on leaving, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders confirmed the news.
Sanders told Politico that there was a “[m]utual decision that he could best help promote the president’s agenda on the outside. Andy is smart and very talented and we wish him all the best.”
