The source said, "there won't be many people here who miss her".

It has sputtered in the opening months of its presidency, having done no television advertising on behalf of Trump's Supreme Court nomination, and only began spending to prevent the White House's embarrassing defeat over Obamacare on the final day of the weeks-long debate.
