President Trump shakes up White House staff again


A top aide to President Donald Trump is leaving his administration.

America First Policies, Walsh's new organization, was established in January as an outside group to push President Trump's agenda, but has not engaged actively in advancing his policies.

America First Policies, once envisioned as the marquee outside group to bolster Trump's political objectives.

"She's got a track record of being able to raise money", a White House source said.

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

Trump son-in-law and adviser Jared Kushner, Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon told the website Thursday afternoon Walsh's move was "less shake-up and more rebooting of an outside effort that they believe failed them in their first, crucial legislative showdown". 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.

Making America Great has the financial support of one of Trump's most influential backers, Rebekah Mercer.
