Recent openings posted on the ManpowerGroup website (see screenshot) include a most conspicuous opening for a “Chief of Staff”, indicating Col. John Kelly may soon leave the Trump administration.
Whitehouse spokesperson Sarah Sanders acknowledged the move at Tuesday’s press briefing:
“Well, ah, as you know, the President likes to create a lean, fluid, combative, and fearful staff environment. Over the years he has refined his management style to eliminate the need for ‘full-time’ employees with benefits.”
When asked if the Whitehouse was considering using competitive bidding, including other agencies, such as Kelly Services, she offered a terse, “No comment.” Through trusted sources, we were told that Kelly was offered a “piece of the action,” but declined, based on The Trump Organization’s failure to pay Kelley $5.1 M for services on multiple projects from 1996-2006.
