- White House chief of staff Jeff Zients is not being received well by Democrats, with many progressives blaming him for undercutting their agenda.
- Zients became White House chief of staff following the departure of his predecessor, Ron Klain, on Feb. 1. His tenure has been marked by a distinct change in leadership style, with many House Democrats complaining that he outsources too many tasks, running his office like a CEO, according to a Politico report.
- His prioritization of efficiency, adding structure to Klain’s more free-flowing process, has earned the ire of many who complain that it has made the White House much less accessible than before.
