Another staffer is departing the White House after less than a year at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, as approval ratings for President Biden continue to dive.
Emma Riley, the White House communications chief of staff, announced in a Friday tweet that she is leaving the West Wing and will be joining the Labor Department.

“It was an honor and privilege to serve @POTUS and the American people at the @White House … I’m excited to be moving down Pennsylvania Ave and traveling around the country with @SecMartyWalsh and @USDOL,” wrote Riley.
In addition to Riley’s departure from the White House, Vice President Kamala Harris’ communications director resigned on Thursday amid reports of turmoil within the East Wing.
Ashley Etienne, a longtime top adviser to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., served as Pelosi’s communications director twice, and also in the Obama White House.
“Ashley is a valued member of the Vice President’s team, who has worked tirelessly to advance the goals of this administration,” a White House official told Fox News. “She is leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”
According to a Fox News survey released Friday, Biden has received his lowest marks so far during his tenure as president. His approval stands at 44%, while 54% disapprove. Last month, it was 46-53%. His best ratings came in June at 56-43%.
