Acting leader removed from agency the White House has used to provide jobs to Trump supporters

Friday 17:17 GMT

The White House has removed the acting chief of a small foreign aid office less than two months after he was put in place to quell controversy over the Trump administration’s use of the agency as a source of jobs for political supporters, according to interviews and an internal email obtained by The Washington Post.

Bierman succeeded another acting leader, Robert Blau, who resigned amid controversy over the White House’s placement of more than a dozen Trump supporters into jobs previously reserved for development specialists.
