Yet Another White House Official Leaves Biden’s Adviser Team

It has happened once again, another one of Biden’s advisors has chosen to get out of Old Uncle Joe’s administration.

This time it was Trey Baker, a senior White House adviser for public engagement that helped lead the efforts of the administration to rally black voters, which is an important segment of the president’s voter base, for the 2020 presidential election. He also worked as the contact point between the White House and Biden’s black voter base, as reported by Bloomberg.

Before this choice, Baker had been one of the longest serving aids in Biden’s administration and on Monday made the choice to leave and take up a position for the law firm Barnes & Thornburg.

“He had to handle some hot potatoes,” expressed Reverend Al Sharpton, a famed civil rights leader, via a phone call interview carried out with Bloomberg, seemingly making reference ot the race riots in the wake of the death of George Floyd, who died as a result of a police officer kneeling on his neck for several minutes. “Trey was the real connection between civil-rights leadership, the White House and the campaign.”

This breaking news cropped up just before word started to spread that Stephen Goepfert,  Biden’s personal aide and body man, announced their intent to leave the White House and take a role within the Department of Transportation by the end of the week.

“From the campaign to the White House, Stephen Goepfert has been by my side,” explained Biden via a statement reported on by CNN. “In moments big, small, and extraordinary, he’s been a trusted and loyal confidant who everyone counts on and who always delivers. Jill and I will miss Stephen, but we’re proud that he will continue to serve the American people in his new role in the Biden-Harris administration as he continues his career in public service.”

As the first openly gay personal aide to a U.S. president, Goepfert has most likely spent more time near the president’s side than any other White House aide since the time of his 2020 presidential campaign, as reported by CNN, labeling him as a “key cog” for the Biden team.

Goepfert and Baker are just two of the most recent departures in a tide of fleeing White House employees that have left the administration over the past few months: White House Rapid Response Director Mike Gwin and Press Assistant Michael Kikukawa both took roles with and departed for Treasury Department, while Assistant White House Press Secretary Vedant Patel made the move over to being the deputy spokesperson at the State Department.
