‘Off the charts’: White House turnover is breaking records

The top echelon of the Trump administration has become a high-speed revolving door — with turnover in 78 percent of the positions, a new study has found.

And 31 percent of those White House “A-Team” jobs have turned over more than once, the study by the Brookings Institution shows.

The A-Team figures do not include Trump’s Cabinet, where there’s also been an unprecedented amount of tumult and turnover. Nine out of the 15 Cabinet positions that are in the presidential line of succession have turned over at least once, Tenpas found. That number surpasses the amount of change during entire first terms of Presidents Ronald Reagan, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama, and the one term of George H.W. Bush.

“I think we have tremendous stability,” Trump told reporters in California. He added that having “acting” agency heads instead of ones confirmed by the Senate gives him “flexibility” and an opportunity to see if they’re the right people for the jobs.
