Newser — Neal Colgrass

Looks like President Trump has a new staff member: Dan Walsh is out as White House chief of operations and Anthony Ornato is in, Fox News reports.

"The United States Secret Service Deputy Assistant Director, Anthony Ornato, will become my new Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations," Trump tweeted, referring to the job's official title.

"I have worked with Tony for 3 years—he will do a fantastic job!" He also thanked Walsh, who's going to the private sector, for his "great service." CNN calls Walsh's leaving "the latest in a series of departures from the Trump administration." Serving under Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney, Ornato will plan Trump's overseas trips and allocate government resources to White House aides, per Axios.
