Joe Biden’s communications director, an early supporter of the US president, will soon step down, the White House announced Wednesday, a significant departure four months from the precarious midterm elections.
Joe Biden’s campaign kingpin, Kate Bedingfield, the Democratic presidential communications director, will leave the White House at the end of July to “spend more time with her husband and young children,” the US executive said.
“Donald Trump might still be in the White House without Kate Bedingfield’s talent and tenacity,” Joe Biden’s chief of staff, Ron Klein, praised. “He will continue to play a key role in advancing Biden’s agenda from the outside,” he said.
Resignations within the White House are not uncommon in the interim. But the departure of this loyalist among the Democratic leader’s loyalists comes as many US media outlets report the administration’s dysfunction.
The White House has not announced who will defend the infamous Joe Biden, who has been increasingly attacked by the progressive camp for his helplessness in the face of the federal repeal of abortion rights and the cult of gunfire that has marked America.
