Another High Level Trump Official is Jumping Ship…But Why?

This has been a hectic week already for the White House, and it’s only Monday.

The Trump White House is no stranger to turnover, make no mistake about it, but this week is turning out to be a doozy.

Just hours ago, the administration accepted the resignation of Kirstjen Nielsen, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security.  Reports indicate that Nielsen had been on thin ice with the President for some time, having shown reticence to some of the Commander in Chief’s bolder strategic border requests.  Her resignation was coerced by the administration itself, according to reports that began to surface Monday morning.

Now, another high level figure in The White House is on his way out, surprising more than a few political observers.

U.S. Secret Service Director Randolph “Tex” Alles is expected to leave the Trump administration, said three administration officials, amid a shake-up in the upper echelon of the Department of Homeland Security.

Alles’ departure stems from a personality conflict within the agency, the officials said, speaking on the condition of anonymity to discuss the personnel matter. The officials said it was unrelated to the resignation of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and a recent security breach at the president’s private club in Florida.

The Mar-a-Lago breach has been a subject of curiosity in the last week, thanks to the odd nature of the incident.

President Trump has made no indication regarding a possible replacement for Alles, nor has a reason other than this “personality conflict” been proffered to the public.

The turbulence may not be over yet, either, as Stephen Miller, a senior adviser to President Trump, has expressed interest in a shakeup at US Citizenship and Immigration Services as well.
