Who fired the White House usher? Biden team says Trump got rid of protocol chief leaving new First Family standing awkwardly at door - but ex-president's camp says Bidens wanted him gone:

https://www.dailymail.co....sher-Timothy-Harleth.html

Quote
Former White House Chief Usher Timothy Harleth was gone from his job before Joe and Jill Biden arrived at the White House on Inauguration Day
It is unclear who fired him: President Trump or the Bidens
'It happened before we walked in the door,' White House press secretary Jen Psaki said at her briefing on Friday.
But a former senior administration official with President Trump told DailyMail.com that the firing came at the request of the Bidens.
'Any suggestion that his resignation was at the direction of anyone other than the Biden team is false,' the person said.
With the world watching on, President Biden and his wife Jill walked up the steps of their new home for the first time on Wednesday.
However, the doors didn't open - which is a breach of protocol Former White House Chief Usher Timothy Harleth was gone from his job before Joe and Jill Biden arrived at the White House on Inauguration Day, leaving the new first couple awkwardly standing at the front door, waiting to go inside.

What remains unclear is who fired the man in charge of the White House residence, whose job it was to make sure such awkward events don't happen. The blame is being pointed at both outgoing President Donald Trump and the Bidens.

'It happened before we walked in the door,' White House press secretary Jen Psaki said at her briefing on Friday when asked who fired Harleth.

But a former senior administration official with President Trump told DailyMail.com that the firing came at the request of the Bidens.

'The head usher enjoyed the confidence of the Trump family throughout his tenure. Any suggestion that his resignation was at the direction of anyone other than the Biden team is false,' the person said after Psaki's comment.

Harleth was a former rooms manager of the Trump International Hotel in Washington who Melania Trump hired in 2017 to manage the residence.

He was seen at the White House on the morning of inauguration, preparing for the Bidens arrival.

But, on Wednesday afternoon, when the Bidens walked through the front gates and up the driveway to enter 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for the first time as president and first lady, no one was waiting to greet them.

The dark wood front doors of the White House stood shut as the Bidens hugged for the cameras and waived to the crowd as a military band played 'Hail to the Chief.' The wait to go inside was a breach in protocol, which is taken seriously at the White House.

Conflicting reports had Harleth leaving at the request of the Bidens, who were rumored to be unenthusiastic about having a former Trump hotel employee managing their home even though Harleth was publicly lobbying to keep his job.

But Trump was also furious with Harleth for sending binders of information on the transition process to Biden's staff in preparation for the January 20th move in day. On that day, White House staff have about five hours to move the outgoing first couple's personal items out, clean the residence and unpack the new president and first lady's belongings.

The Trumps sent the butlers home when they left so there would be no one to help the Bidens when they arrived,' a well-placed official not associated with the incoming Biden team told National Journal. 'So petty.'

The New York Times reported Harleth was told at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday - after the Trumps had left for Florida but before Biden had taken the oath of office - that his services were no longer needed. 

Therefore Harleth would not have been on hand when the Bidens arrived at their new home on Wednesday afternoon.

Though the White House doors are typically opened by Marine guards, the chief usher is in charge of greeting the incoming president and his family, in addition to overseeing operations at the residence.

Harleth's duties primarily included overseeing budgets, planning the family's dinner menus and handling any personal issues. His salary was estimated to be around the $200,000 mark.

While the job is traditionally considered non-political, the Times noted Melania's decision to hire a Trump Organization employee added a partisan implication to Harleth's tenure.

After Election Day, Harleth found himself in the increasingly difficult position of attempting to prepare the White House for a new tenant while the current occupant was still refusing to concede the race.

In a statement to the Times, Harleth said: 'It has been an honor to serve as chief usher, a position whose loyalty is not to a specific president, but rather to the institution of the presidency.

'I am proud that I had the opportunity to lead the residence staff to receive the incoming first family with the utmost respect and dignity, not just for this administration, but for the future success of the office of the president.'

It's currently unclear who Jill Biden will appoint to replace Harleth. A number of his deputy chief ushers have remained in their positions under the new administration.


Oh Please .... these positions are the equivalent of Federal employees - no one should be let go on a change on regime .... I can understand some reassignment but beyond that .... and I doubt the first thing the Bidens would have done would have been to sack what is a household manager ... much more important things ??

Normally Chief Ushers stay on for years. But normally they aren't hired from a hotel owned by the sitting President. That's the sticking point, and unfortunate for Mr. Harleth, because he would like to keep the job.

The way this went down was all on Trump, though I do think Mr. Harleth would have been let go at some point over the next few months.

The guy probably saw a huge increase in salary with a more intimate job (1 family instead of hundreds revolving in and out) and wanted to keep this position. But hiring a former employee did put a target on him because it's a trust issue. Biden was working with him on the transition and he was former VP, he knew he needed him for the transition,  basically.

One person of the two has a history of firing people that kneecap efficiency.

If I were the Bidenís, no way would I have a former Trump hotel employee stay on.

Considering Trump didnít allow a plane to be used for the Bidenís, and heís petty and vindictive, Iíd say itís more likely Trump fired him. Probably to be rehired somewhere else in that organization.

Get the moles out of the WH, stat. And sweep for Russian bugs.

Yes, I agree. There has already been some housecleaning, but there is sure to be more. Then maybe we can get on with healing this country.
