Joe Grogan, Head Of White House Domestic Policy Council, Leaving At End Of Month

Yet another top official in President Donald Trump’s administration is said to be on the verge of resigning.

But this time, it seems he is leaving on good terms.

Joe Grogan, head of the White House Domestic Policy Council, is said to be leaving his position with the administration by the end of May.

Grogan said that he’d remained in the position longer than anticipated and that his last day would be May 24.

He also made it clear that there were no hard feelings or issues between him and President Trump, according to The Hill.

“I promised my wife two years and I’m in my fourth year,” Grogan later told Politico. “No one outworked me.”

Grogan said he had a “great conversation” with Trump and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows as he began preparations to leave, and predicted that the Covid-19 outbreak would be hitting a lull by his departure.

Based on one of his most recent tweets, it certainly appears Grogan remains very supportive of the president.

When he first joined the Trump administration in 2017, Grogan was a top official at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and was focused on health care policy.

He was also reportedly one of the founding members of the White House coronavirus task force that was formed in January.

More recently he’s been closely involved in the administration’s efforts to stem the coronavirus pandemic.

Grogan reportedly was among the first officials to warn the White House of the virus’s potential to disrupt American life.

During the George W. Bush administration, Grogan was a policy adviser at the Food and Drug Administration, according to his LinkedIn profile.

Last month, Congress finally cleared a new small-business and healthcare spending package that will provide $484 billion in funding that responds to the impact of the coronavirus.

The measure provides $310 billion to replenish a newly created small-business aid program, $75 billion for healthcare facilities, $25 billion to increased coronavirus testing, and $60 billion for an economic disaster-relief program.

Socialist New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez was the only House Democrat to oppose the bill, which provided funding to help Americans who are struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Four House Republicans — Andy Biggs of Arizona, Ken Buck of Colorado, Jody Hice of Georgia, and Thomas Massie of Kentucky — along with former Republican Justin Amash (I., Mich.) joined Ocasio-Cortez in voting against the bill.

President Trump signed the bill and the funds are currently in the works to be dispersed.
