Trump fires first black female chief usher at White House

The Trump administration has fired its chief usher, Angella Reid, who was the first woman and second African-American to hold the position.
White House residence staff were shocked with the news when they arrived at work Friday morning and were told that Reid had been fired.
Speaking to reporters on her dismissal, White House deputy press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that Reid 'left on very good terms and we wish her the very best.'

'It’s not uncommon that you might have a transition of staff when a new administration comes in. And it’s simply nothing more than that,' she added.

Angella Reid whose job at the White House was to coordinate all activities at the residence, including handling everything from the large staff of butlers, maids, chefs, florists and electricians to fiscal, administrative and personal duties was employed in 2011 by former President Obama.

Reid was said to be very close to the Obamas and very strict with the White House staff.

This position is usually a long tenure job. There have only been 9 Chief ushers in the White House since the 20th century.

Trump is like smoke is smelling in ur inner skull. Or is it a crime to be born black. I see nothing but a great hatred. Which blacks is facing round the whole universe of Europe.

Trump also appointed an African American woman as nation's first Surgeon General about 2 weeks ago. Please stop race baiting Linda Ikeji on Trump's appointments.

Linda pls keep quiet if you don't know anything about Ameican politics.when a new government comes they come in with their own people. Why didn't Obama leave George Bush's usher when he came to the WH?Everything Trump does it is all about race to Linda and her crew. Don't focus on your sick president and his cabals.
