White House Shakes Up Staff w/ National Security Adviser Move

Share on social

The White House shook up its staff this week with the move of the National Security Adviser, sending a clear message that things are changing.

It appears to be a major power play on President Trump’s part as the top NSC spokeswoman switches roles, moving to join the Chief of Staff’s office.

Washington examiner reports, the White House has recently added a new senior communications aide to the chief of staff office. Saloni Sharma, previously a deputy spokesperson for the National Security Council (NSC), will be taking on this role. This move comes as part of the White House’s efforts to communicate how they are getting their job done.

White House Chief of Staff Jeff Zients said in a statement that “Saloni will be a key part of the team in our efforts to communicate how we are getting the job done.” He also noted that her experience with the NSC and on Capitol Hill would be an asset to the team.

Sharma is no stranger to politics and government service. She has worked for Michelle Nunn’s US Senate campaign, and was also a digital fellow at the White House National Security Council. Her experience in both political campaigns and government service make her well-suited for her new role as senior communications aide.

In addition, Sharma is highly experienced in digital media strategy, which will come in handy when it comes to communicating with the public about what the White House is doing. Her expertise in this area will help ensure that messages from the White House reach their intended audience effectively and efficiently.

This move comes as Biden has been struggling with high turnover in top level advisors.

A Brookings Institution study found that the turnover rate of Biden’s top-level aides is at the second highest since former President Ronald Reagan was in office. The study found that 21 “A-Team staffers” were gone after two years.

The Brookings Institution report notes that Vice President Kamala Harris’ office has had extremely high turnover.

Harris, in particular, has had difficulty retaining staffers, reportedly due to an abusive work environment.

It seems that the Biden administration has made yet another major shakeup to its national security leader team, with Saloni Sharma transitioning from her role as Deputy NSC Spokeswoman to a Communications Aid for the Chief of Staff. With this move, President Biden’s leadership seems to be scrambling to keep up with key changes, especially when it comes to management on the national security front. This somewhat high turnover rate is concerning — what kind of failed leadership is our government displaying if they can’t even manage strong internal policies? While many news outlets view this as a shrewd power play, others are shocked and angry at how quickly the Biden administration has gone through NSC staffers since he took office. One thing is certain – analyzing and predicting upcoming moves by the Biden administration is like a game of political chess.
