Report: Ex-Trump Staffers Seeing Job Offers Rescinded Following January 6th Insurrection
There were plenty of prominent aides to Donald Trump during his 4 years in office. Many of them left along the way, but others stayed the course. There are also a number of staffers who worked behind the scenes in the Trump White House. But the thing they have in common is that they are all having trouble finding future employment.
Some of these former White House workers were lucky enough to secure a post Trump job somewhere else. But according to a new report from Politico, some of these people have seen those offers rescinded post January 6th.
Gabby Orr, Meredith McGraw and Daniel Lippman write, “Tainted by Trump’s reputation, several Trump aides described an increasingly bleak job market with virtually no chance of landing jobs in corporate America and some even having seen promising leads disappear after the rampage at the U.S. Capitol. A second former White House official said they knew of ‘people who got jobs rescinded because of Jan. 6.'”
One option for these people who can’t get jobs in Washington is to just stick with Trump. Mark Meadows, who served as Chief of Staff, might take that option. Politico is reporting that Meadows could join the Trump Organization.
Others, though, will not be taking that option. According to the report, Hope Hicks and John McEntee have also been asked to stay with Trump. The two younger staffers, though, will not be taking that option.
