Job stability. You can’t count on it in the Trump administration.

Secret Service Director Randolph Alles is the latest to be departing, ABC News reported Monday, [2] adding that his departure is at the direction of the president.

“United States Secret Service director Randolph “Tex” Alles has done a great job at the agency over the last two years, and the President is thankful for his over 40 years of service to the country,” White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement. “Mr. Alles will be leaving shortly and President Trump has selected James M. Murray, a career member of the USSS, to take over as director beginning in May.”

The news comes just one day after Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen resigned.  A few days before that, Thomas Brandon, head of ATF, announced he was departing April 30.
