Following the U.S. Special Representative for Ukraine, Kurt Walker, the White House decided to leave another senior official вЂ” Kelly Ann Shaw, Advisor to the President on Foreign Trade and the G-7 Summit.
In addition, she served as Deputy Assistant to the President for International Economic Affairs and Deputy Director of the National Economic Council.
According to the administration of Donald Trump, she will leave her post on October 25 to start working in the private sector.
The show was part of the White House's economic team and was the confidant of the US president at the G7 and G20 summits, and also advised the US president during trade negotiations with China.
вЂњKelly Ann has made an outstanding career in trade policy and has played an important role in the implementation of the administrationвЂ™s trade and economic agenda. We will miss her,вЂќ commented Larry Cadlow, director of the National Economic Council.
It is worth noting that she took her post only this year, replacing Clet Williams. Who will come to replace her, the Trump administration did not say.
Recall, this is not the first resignation in the US government over the past year. In December, amid a divergence of views, Trump dismissed Pentagon chief James Mattis.
