Washington – (dpa)
US President Joe Biden’s chief of staff, Ron Klain, is preparing to leave his post in the coming weeks, in what Bloomberg News considered a departure for a high-ranking official as the White House faces two years of a divided Congress and prepares for his expected re-election bid, sources familiar with the agency said.
Klein informed Biden of his plans to leave, but the timing of his exit remains unclear, according to the sources, who spoke to Bloomberg on condition of anonymity. The White House declined to comment.
Klein’s departure will immediately spark speculation about his successor, although it is not yet clear who that will be. The White House chief of staff is among the most powerful figures in Washington, playing a critical role in shaping the president’s agenda and communicating with Congress.
