It is a new year and First Lady Melania Trump has just wrapped up her first full 365 days in the White House. This week, the elegant First Lady announced that she is making some changes over in the East Wing.
Mrs. Trump announced Thursday she had successfully filled three vital roles on her team including: Director of Policy, Director of Operations and Communications Coordinator.
The additions mark one of the largest expansions of her East Wing staff to date. The First Lady must have some exciting plans for the next year as she gets comfortable in her new official capacity.
Melania Trump chose Reagan Thompson, a former staffer for the National Security Council, to be her Director of Policy. Thompson will oversee the first lady’s “policies and initiatives,” according to a White House statement.
Mrs. Trump selected Justin Caporale, who worked on the Trump campaign, for the role of Director of Operations. Caporale’s duties will “include managing the day-to-day logistical operations of the East Wing, focusing on events, and planning foreign and domestic travel.”
Annie LeHardy will be moving from the West Wing press office to serve as Melania Trump’s Communications Director.
“I am very excited to add these quality professionals to my already stellar team,” Melania Trump said in a statement. “Each person filling their respective and vital role has shown true professionalism in their chosen career, and I am confident they will enhance my work on behalf of children everywhere, while helping me further expand my role as First Lady of the United States.
