Dina Habib Powell will be leaving the White House at some point in the New Year as President Trump looks to make a staff shakeup at the one-year point.
The Jared Kushner and Ivanka associate was known for her close working relationship with Gary Cohn, the establishment Goldman Sachs veteran whose presence as a White House adviser rankled Trump loyalists like Steve Bannon.
The departure of Powell might spell trouble for her pal Cohn, whose career in the White House has been propped up by support (and threats) from major globalist financial institutions on Wall Street. Big League Politics has reported on Cohn’s daughter’s deleted anti-Trump tweets.
Powell was a foreign policy adviser and Bush administration alum who, according to The New York Times, enjoyed influence outside merely the foreign policy realm and was even discussed as a possible chief of staff. The Bannon foe’s friends cited her work commute and family issues for her departure, which is Washington-Speak indicating that she is being forced out.
Trump loyalists can only hope that a wave of establishment departures will be on the horizon, opening up new advisory slots for nationalists in tune with the themes of President Trump’s campaign and political philosophy.
