Pres. Trump fires first black female White House usher

by Azeez Adeniyi

An administration official has confirmed that Angella Reid, the first female chief usher to work at the White House, is “no longer employed by the White House.”

Reid was fired, according to sources. One administration official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, cited “issues with the staff.”

The departure which is unusual for a White House Usher which does not change with administrations was first reported by Washington Post.


Only nine people have held the job in the last 132 years.

“We are very grateful for her service,” the official said. White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters today 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.

Reid, a former general manager of The Ritz-Carlton in Pentagon City in Virginia, was hired by President Barack Obama in 2011.

She was the second African-American to serve in the position and only the ninth chief usher since 1885.
