The White House is bracing for a wave of post midterm departures as staffers leave for President Trump's reelection campaign. An indication that the administration is shifting its focus to twenty twenty reporter Alex Eisenstaedt at politico says the first moves could come shortly after next week's midterm elections. Alex. What will we see see after next Tuesday's or a lot of White House staffer starting to move over to Donald Trump's reelection campaign, which is really going to become the political focus for the White House after the midterm election of finished who might be leaving any big names.

Who has been in charge organizing of the White House's strategies for the midterms another guy by the name of Justin Clark who likes deputy was a was a player on Trump's twenty sixteen campaign that work in the White House. Both of them are expected to leave shortly after the midterms, and you're what you're likely to see a wave of other White House staffers follow and so really when you look at a White House, that's really been emptying out even before that you could see even more all without building in the weeks to come is this a pretty much standard timing for presidents who are seeking a second term. You know, it is. And you you saw similar things happen after the first midterms of Brock Obama, and George W Bush's white houses, this is happening slightly earlier though, and that sort of falls in line with what we're seeing in politics, generally, which is that as camping get more and more sophisticated more and more money gets spent campaigns in politics are getting speeded up much earlier.

It's might the people who are leaving or might that list of people change in some way, depending on mid-term results. Good question.

And you know, look, you could see some people get blame before how the outcome is goes, you could see people get credit for how the outcome goes. The White House is really sort of. It's a wild kind of play for that where a get pointed and people also rush take credit, depending on how the outcome goes.
