Since taking office in 2017, President Donald Trump has seen a staff turnover rate higher than the previous five administrations, according to the Brookings Institute.
Adding to the list of those who have come and gone will soon be White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders. Trump recently announced she would be leaving her position at the end of the June to return to her home state of Arkansas.
Huckabee Sanders worked as part of Trump's administration since the first day of his presidency. Her departure leaves only a handful of staff who can claim they there were there since the start of his administration.
Stephen Miller: White House Senior Advisor
Kellyanne Conway: Counselor to the President
Stephanie Grisham: Press Secretary, Communications Director for the First Lady
Dan Scavino Jr.: White House Director of Social Media, Assistant to the President
A member of the final four, Scavino was part of Trump's campaign team on June 16, 2015, the day president announced his plans to pursue the office.
Golf course origins
Before this, he played a key role in the purchase of purchase of Trump National Golf Club, Hudson Valley, back when it was named Branton Woods Golf Course. Scavino, at the time, was an executive vice president running the Trump golf operation out of Trump National Golf Course, Westchester, after meeting the now-president while a teenager working as his caddie. He convinced his boss to take a ride with him north to see Branton Woods.
"I told him before we left, 'If you don't like this golf course at all, you can just get rid of me. Terminate me. So be it," Scavino told the Journal in June 2010.
