The White House Deputy Chief of Staff who served three Republican Presidents is reportedly resigning next month.
White House Deputy Chief of Staff Joe Hagin, an experienced Trump administration adviser who served three other Republican Presidents, will step down next month, officials said Tuesday.
Hagin, 62, had roles in the administrations of Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, and George W. Bush. He plans to return to the private sector, and will leave the White House on July 6, the officials said.
“Joe Hagin has been a huge asset to my administration,” President Trump said in a statement. “He planned and executed the longest and one of the most historic foreign trips ever made by a President, and he did it all perfectly,. We will miss him in the office and even more on the road.”
Hagin led the U.S. advance team for Trump’s summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore this month.
He also put together Trump’s first foreign trip to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Belgium and Italy a year ago, and his tour of Asia last November.
“Joe Hagin brought a level of expertise and institutional knowledge that is unrivaled,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said. “He will be greatly missed by all of us.”
