A Reoccurring Feature on Who's Jumping Off Luxury Liner Trump
Daniel Walsh is technically Deputy Chief of White House Staff but is really the chief operations officer for Donald Trump, helping to plan rallies and other special events. He's been in the White House with Trump from Day One but was in government service prior to that for more than two decades.
Walsh was in charge of Trump's foreign trips and "played a critical role in the attempted planning of the Group of Seven summit at the president’s Doral resort, which was scuttled amid backlash over the emoluments clause" (WashPost). "He had walk-in privileges with Trump and regularly conferred with the president in the Oval Office, aides said, while seeking a low profile in a workplace that can often be contentious."
