Joe Biden’s communications director, a loyal ally of the Democratic president from the first moment, will soon leave her duties, the White House announced yesterday, a notable departure, four months before the crucial US midterm elections.
Deputy director of Mr. Biden’s 2020 campaign, then communications director for the Democratic president, Kate Bedingfield, 40, will leave the White House at the end of July “to spend more time with her husband and their two young children.” “, said the American presidency.
“Without the talent and tenacity of Kate Bedingfield, Donald Trump might still be in the White House,” was the laudatory comment of Ron Klein, the general secretary (“chief of staff”) of the American presidency. “He will continue to play an important role in advancing the Biden agenda” even after he leaves his team of close aides, he added.
Resignations are not unusual in the White House around midterm elections. But the departure of this most loyal and one of the most loyal associates of the Democratic leader was announced as American media have recently been talking about malfunctions in his government.
The White House has not specified who – or who – will succeed her in the task of defending a free-falling popularity Joe Biden, who is increasingly under attack from the left wing of his party as he appears powerless in the face of repealing abortion rights in federal level and in the face of the litany of massacres that plunge America into mourning.
