Top Trump aide and key player in North Korea summit could be leaving the White House: report

One of President Trump’s top aides is planning on leaving the White House.

According to the Washington Post, Joseph Hagin, the deputy chief of staff for operations, could leave soon after the highly anticipated North Korea summit.

Hagin is one of the key players in the summit. He was in Singapore this week helping to arrange the Trump-Kim meeting.

The Post is reporting that Hagin is looking at the deputy director post at the CIA, after Gina Haspel left that post to become the agency’s director.

The report noted that Hagin was in the same mold as chief of staff John Kelly, trying to maintain order in a White House surrounded by chaos.

Hagin has been in the job since Inauguration Day. He served in the same role during the George W. Bush administration.

This all comes as press secretary Sarah Sanders told the Post that there were no immediate personnel changes.
