Another top-level official in the Biden administration is stepping down, leaving questions about the direction of the current administration.
Keisha Lance Bottoms, the White House’s senior advisor and director of the Office of Public Engagement, will be departing her post, as more Republicans jump in to challenge President Biden in 2024.
This departure comes in the wake of an awkward moment when Bottoms introduced Vice President Kamala Harris to a group of journalism students. It’s just another example of the lack of coordination and unity within the Biden administration.
But while Bottoms is leaving, President Biden has announced that Stephen Benjamin, the former Mayor of Columbia, South Carolina, will be taking her place.
Benjamin is a longtime public servant with over two decades of experience statewide and as a three-term mayor of Columbia. As a former president of both the U.S. Conference of Mayors and the African American Mayors Association, his relationships with communities across the country will serve the administration and the American public well.
It’s clear that the Biden administration is struggling to keep top officials in place, and it’s not hard to see why. With a flailing economy, a crisis at the southern border, and foreign policy blunders, it’s no wonder that people are fleeing the sinking ship.
Under Keisha’s leadership, the Office of Public Engagement has promoted “equity” during her tenure. But what does that even mean? The left likes to use buzzwords like “equity” to sound like they’re doing something, but the reality is that they’re just pushing radical leftist policies that harm everyday Americans.
