Top White House aide Marc Short to leave Trump administration

Top White House legislative aide Marc Short will be leaving the Trump administration, the White House confirmed Thursday.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly described Short, one of the administration’s longest-serving senior aides, as “an integral part of the White House staff who helped the President rebuild the military, pass historic tax reform and achieve unprecedented legislative successes.” “We will miss his profound expertise, commitment to the taxpayers, and leadership,” Kelly said in a statement released by the White House.

Short, President Donald Trump’s legislative affairs director, will be replaced later this month by Shahira Knight, the White House announced. Knight previously served as Deputy Assistant to the President for Economic Policy and Deputy Director of the National Economic Council.
