Boris Ep­shteyn, a one­time surrogate for Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump who be­came a White House aide, is ex­pected to de­part from his post. Ep­shteyn, who reg­u­larly ap­peared on tele­vi­sion to boost Trump dur­ing the pres­i­den­tial cam­paign, had served as a spe­cial as­sis­tant to the pres­i­dent and as­sis­tant com­mu­ni­ca­tions di­rec­tor for surrogate oper­a­tions. A se­nior ad­min­is­tra­tion of­fi­cial said that the White House is “ex­plor­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties within the ad­min­is­tra­tion” for Ep­shteyn. The move was first re­ported by Politico. In his of­fi­cial post, Ep­shteyn was re­spon­si­ble for over­see­ing the ap­pear­ances of White House of­fi­cials on tele­vi­sion. A re­cent re­port in Politico noted that Ep­shteyn had ran­kled tele­vi­sion pro­duc­ers and had ir­ri­tated other guests in green rooms.
