Donald Trump Appoints Top Deputies, More White House Staff

President-elect Donald Trump has appointed former RNC Chief of Staff Katie Walsh to serve as his Deputy Chief of Staff to the White House, according to a release from the transition team.

He also named Rick Dearborn, a chief of staff for Sen. Jeff Sessions, to serve as the Deputy Chief of Staff for Legislative and Intergovernmental Affairs, and former Bush administration official Joe Hagin as the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations at the White House.

“Rick and Katie have been instrumental in our victory and transition efforts,” said Trump’s Chief Strategist Steve Bannon in a statement. “These leaders will guide critical White House operations as we aggressively follow through on President-elect Trump’s promise to put America First.”

The appointments also drew praise from incoming Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and Kellyanne Conway, the recently named Counselor to the President.

“Katie Walsh is an all-star,” Conway said in a statement. “She helped our party achieve sweeping victories across the country, and I’m thrilled to have another strong female leader on our Senior White House team.”

“The President-elect’s bold vision to make America great again demands a team of doers who can hit the ground running on day one,” Priebus said in a statement. “Katie, Rick, and Joe will fill critical roles as we push forward on all of the key priorities for our great nation.”
