Nick Ay­ers

Vocable (All English) - - On Parle D'eux… -

36-year-old Nick Ay­ers has turned down a job of­fer from Amer­i­can Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump. In De­cem­ber, he was asked to take over from John Kelly as White House chief of staff – as Kelly an­nounced he would leave by the end of the year. But the next day, Ay­ers, who was then chief of staff to Mike Pence, tweeted his thanks to both the pres­i­dent and the vice-pres­i­dent, stat­ing he would “be de­part­ing from the White House at the end of the year” be­cause of fam­ily com­mit­ments. Trump is re­ported to be look­ing for a chief of staff to be in place through to the 2020 elec­tion and Nick Ay­ers had emerged as a front-run­ner to re­place Kelly.
