White House director of rapid response Andy Hemming is out in his role, Politico reported.

Hemming left his job Monday, Politico reported, citing multiple sources.

The departure was "mutually agreed upon," a source familiar with the move told the publication.


Hemming previously served as a senior adviser for research at the Republican National Committee. He also worked as a director of research for President Trump's campaign.

It was a “mutual decision that he could best help promote the president’s agenda on the outside," White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told Politico.

"Andy is smart and very talented and we wish him all the best," she added.

Hemming's departure is just the latest from the White House communications staff.

Former White House press secretary Sean Spicer and communication director Anthony Scaramucci departed from their White House roles recently, as did former chief of staff Reince Priebus. Both Spicer and Priebus also held positions at the Republican National Committee prior to joining the Trump administration.
