There is a lot going on at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue these days. Last month, the General Services Administration provided the Biden-Harris transition team with the necessary tools for them to begin moving into power; this approval arrived amid President Trump’s permission, following death threats against the General Services Administrator.
Despite the transition of power, the White House still remains under a Trump presidency. As this happens, President Trump and his legal attorneys are citing voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
Ultimately, the Trump legal team is working to prove this fraud in a court of law and thereby overturn what is largely viewed as an illegitimate and premature declaration of victory for Joe Biden.
Amid all of this, Washington Examiner confirms that White House communications director Alyssa Farah has resigned from her post.
The Most Recent White House Resignation
The announcement of Farah’s resignation as the White House communications director arrived yesterday.
According to Farah, her plan was to always depart from the White House following the 2020 presidential election; the former aide also informed that she’ll be working to start a consulting firm that centers around political defense and communications.

On Thursday, Farah spent time going through the West Wing and saying her farewells to various aides. In a statement, the former White House communications director described working for the president over the past 3.5 years as an “honor of a lifetime.” Farah also lauded the many accomplishments and conservative policies of the Trump administration.
Reactions to Farah’s Resignation
News of Farah’s resignation continues to make the rounds on social media. Some Americans are speculating that her decision has something to do with ongoing litigation and disputes surrounding the 2020 presidential election.
President Trump, members of the first family, and others, however, had nothing but kind words for Farah. They wished her well and praised the quality of her work for the White House over the years.
Thank you Alyssa! 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 https://t.co/tVrsPFHH5r

Thus far, a replacement for the White House communications director position has yet to be announced. The ongoing transition of power that currently remains underway could possibly muddy the hiring of a new communications director under the current administration; although, only time will tell.
