Nick Ayers

Vocable (Anglais) - - On Parle D'eux… Ceux Qui Font L'actu -

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.
