First lady Melania Trump announced Friday that she has selected the director of rooms at Trump International Hotel to serve as White House chief usher.
Timothy Harleth presently oversees more than 110 employees at the Trump hotel in Washington, D.C., the White House said Friday.
"I am so pleased that Timothy will be joining our team," Melania Trump said in a statement. "He was selected because of his impressive work history and management skills. My husband and I know he will be successful in this vital role within the White House."
As chief usher, Harleth will oversee the more than 90 household staffers who service the White House. Harleth will coordinate everyone from chefs to florists in his new role.
"I am so honored at the opportunity to serve the First Family in their new home," Harleth said Friday. "I look forward to applying my experience with hospitality, leadership, and political protocol in order to ensure the First Family's needs are met, while also protecting and preserving the rich history of the White House. I am excited to work alongside the accomplished and professional staff who are already in place."
The Trump administration dismissed Angella Reid, the previous chief usher, in early May.

Good. They fired a Black woman who probably reported everything she heard to Valerie Jarrett, as instructed, and replaced her with a White dude they trust. And the HuffPost went NUTS. WINNING.

Thanks for posting (I wouldn’t have known about this otherwise). The WH’s gain is Trump’s hotel’s loss. I hope Trump International can find a good replacement for Harleth. The best and most competent people don’t grow on trees.
Well, no.. I think I won’t.
But thanks, though!
Hey, since you like rules and stuff.. you might want to check out “talking crap about people without pinging them”.
You know, just in the interest of balance and stuff.
Those kinds of comments are just a negative distraction for everyone who wasn’t involved in the original issue.
I learned a looong time ago on FR to never argue with id!ots, they only bring down to their level and ‘certain’ people are treated ‘special’.
Thank you for the post. I would have missed it without your input.
Your welcome... ;0)
Thank You and Your Welcome...
I , too , would like to thank you for the post .
I was thinking the same thing. Also pleased that a valued employee will have the First Family’s back.
A good choice for the People’s House. Thanks for posting.
Why does this say it is an excerpt when it isn’t?
‘Also pleased that a valued employee will have the First Familys back.’
Absolutely. Melania knows who can be trusted. She made a great choice.
Your very welcome...
Maybe because there’s an embedded video in the original article?
