Lyons has played a number of roles in the White House over the years, becoming a close confidant of Trump in the process. He replaced Rob Porter as staff secretary in 2018 after Porter left following allegations of domestic abuse.
Lyons in his role as staff secretary delegated the flow of information to the president. He was reportedly considered as the head of the Domestic Policy Council earlier this year, but the job eventually went to Brooke Rollins. Lyons was promoted to the presidency as a counselor, around the same time Rawlins came to that job.
Bloomberg News first reported on Leon’s imminent exit.
“It is an honor and privilege to work for President Trump in the White House and fight for the American people with truly talented and dedicated allies,” Lyons told the news outlet. “I am deeply grateful to the President for the opportunity to serve.”
It is unclear if Leon had planned to leave if Trump won a second term, but he is one of the few top-level officials who refuses to be out of the presidential election.
