BAGHDAD, White House Chief of Staff Joe Haigen resigned a week after the historic summit between President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in Singapore, in which he played a key role in its organization.
Joe Haigen was a great value for my Administration," Trump said in a statement , adding that he has planned and carried out the longest overseas trips ever made by a President, and he has done all that perfectly, we will miss him in the office and we will miss him more on the road.
The 62-year-old, who served in four Republican Administrations (Ronald Reagan, George HW Bush, George W. Bush and Donald Trump), will leave the White House to work in the private sector.
With this resignation, the veteran logistics expert joins a long list of presidential advisers who have moved away from Trump - whether of their own volition or decision - in the 17 months he has spent at the White House.
