US White House Communications Director Alyssa Farah Resigns

  • Trump administration official is departing even as president refuses to concede losing to Biden

Alyssa Farah addressed members of the news media in October.

WASHINGTON—White House communications director Alyssa Farah has resigned, a sign that Trump administration officials have begun to move on even as President Trump refuses to concede that he lost to President-elect Joe Biden.

“It’s been the honor of a lifetime to serve in the Trump Administration over the last 3 and a half years,” Ms. Farah, 31 years old, tweeted Thursday evening. Before joining the White House communications team in April, Ms. Farah served as a press secretary to Vice President Mike Pence and then served as press secretary at the Defense Department. Ms. Farah didn’t respond to a request for comment.

Her resignation, which takes effect Friday, comes as Mr. Trump continues to claim widespread fraud in the Nov. 3 presidential election, allegations his legal team hasn’t substantiated in court. Key states have certified their results in favor of Mr. Biden. No evidence has surfaced of widespread fraud.

Ms. Farah worked closely with the White House coronavirus task force and on Thursday praised the speedy work on a vaccine.

Other administration staffers have been looking for jobs on Capitol Hill, with outside firms and Fox News, according to people familiar with the discussions.
