Kevin Hassett will soon leave his position as Chairman of the White House Council of Economic Advisers at the end of the month. He has served as Chairman of the CEA since September 2017. Hassett said his departure has been in the works for a while, and is not tied to administration policies or planned regarding tariffs on China and Mexico. “It’s just normal, circle-of-life kind of things. It has nothing to do with any policy disagreements. If you look at the history of the CEA, it’s very normal for the chair to move on after two years.” The President is expected to name Hassett’s successor in the near future.
