First Lady Melania Trump has hired a new chief usher to oversee the White House residence staff, bringing in a high-level employee from the Trump Organization's Washington hotel to fill the slot.
Melania went on to discuss the details of one of her first major White House events since moving to the District-the annual congressional picnic-before the interview shifted focus to her husband and the ongoing Russian Federation investigation.
But the president paid tribute to the "wonderful tradition" that is the picnic and offered kind words for his family's new home and their new neighbours, noting to laughter that he and his wife have "developed friendships with some really great people - mostly". This spring, the Trumps pushed out Chief Usher Angella Reid, an Obama appointee who had also come from the world of luxury hotels. Harleth, who worked for Mandarin Oriental hotels in NY and Washington D.C. last year, will take on the important role of managing the butlers, housekeepers, and others who work in the President's home and he will also maintain the executive mansion.

"The chief usher makes sure the trains run on time", said Brower.
"I am so pleased Timothy will be joining our team", Trump said in a statement. But FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said that those regulations are still being ironed out because of safety and security issues.
Reagan obliged, which is a testament to just how important Harleth's role could, and possibly should, be inside the Trump administration.
