ICYMI- Joe Biden is about to have a serious staffing issue.
By all accounts, Joe Biden is going to run for re-election.
As a matter of fact, with Trump announcing this week, it is all but guaranteed that Biden will run again as long as they can keep him upright.
There is a downside to that, however.
The moment Joe Biden announces, his economy goes right to the front of the line for debate.
That means anyone in that department is just as scrutinized.
Number one on that list would be National Economic Council (NEC) Director Brian Deese, who is now reportedly leaving after the calendar rolls over.
Council of Economic Advisers Chairwoman Cecilia Rouse is also reportedly returning to Princeton, where she was working before joining this administration.
The only person we know that is staying in that department would be Secretary Yellen, but the rumors about her are that she has no desire to work in a second term if Biden wins.
With rumors running rampant, the White House is not deflecting any longer on this.
During the week, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre admitted that the administration is “prudently planning for potential transitions.”
