First lady Jill Biden’s office did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment.
She was let go by the Trumps a few months after they took over the White House.
Chief ushers can stay through multiple administrations, however Harleth’s firing did not come as a surprise to several sources inside the White House.
Reid was the White House’s ninth usher and the second African American.
The chief usher and residence staff are not political positions, and it’s highly unusual for someone to leave at the beginning of a new administration.
Stephen Rochon, who was the chief usher from 2007 to 2011, said the Trump transition team asked him to come back “to run the house,” but he declined due to family reasons.
“It really doesn’t matter who is president, or what party is in office,” Rochon said. “The permanent staff averages 25 years — one staffer was there for 50 years.”
