First female White House chief usher 'no longer employed,' official says

Trump administration officials confirmed that Reid is no longer employed at the White House. She was hired in 2011 to replace the first African American in the job, Stephen Rochon, when he left for a position at the Department of Homeland Security.

Reid joined the White House in 2011 under President Barack Obama.

Reid was the first woman and second African American in history to hold the position.

"This is really some s***".

Anita McBride, who served as chief of staff to Laura Bush, spoke highly of Reid but said her background in the hospitality sector may have left her less prepared for the transition between administrations than other White House residence staff members, who had served both Democrats and Republicans in course of their careers.

"What I think about most when I walk around the house is who has been here, who has done what in this particular space", Reid told CNN a year ago. "The Trump administration seems anxious about Obama's spies", he said, "and there may have been a feeling that she wasn't on page with the Trumpians".

She added: 'It gives me a sense of awe, the fact that slaves built this house and I now work in this house as a leader, something out of my wildest dreams'. Yeah, right! Like Donald Trump's White House would ever do anything callous and cold-hearted and likely fuelled by the paranoia that Angela Reid was an Obama loyalist intent on stealing Trump's Twitter password and wiretapping his flower vases. "She worked for years in top management in hotels".

Trump wasn't at the White House on Friday when staff were informed of the firing. "I met a young lady who told me that there was a position open at the White House for the chief usher".

Others on the residential staff tend to stay even longer. I literally made a cold call.

"Knowing Angella, I doubt seriously that she would have done something herself to cause this", Rochon.
