She was in, she was out, and now she’s back in again. Confused yet? In a last-minute change of mind, White House communications director Kate Bedingfield has reversed her decision to leave her job.
Bedingfield had previously said she would step down at the end of July after years advising President Joe Biden, serving him as communications director when he was vice president.
She also joined Biden’s 2020 campaign as the deputy campaign manager and director of communications.
Initial news of Bedingfield’s departure broke after White House press secretary Jen Psaki also left her position, which sparked additional departures, as Breitbart News reported.
But this week, UPI reports she backflipped under pressure to reconsider from Biden and Chief of Staff Ron Klain.
