Susan Rice is stepping down as President Biden’s top domestic policy adviser, the White House announced Monday.
“I surprised a lot of people when I named Ambassador Susan Rice as my Domestic Policy Advisor,” Biden said in the White House statement announcing her departure. “Susan was synonymous with foreign policy. … But what I knew then and what we all know now – after more than two years of her steady leadership of the Domestic Policy Council – it’s clear: there is no one more capable, and more determined to get important things done for the American people than Susan Rice.”
It was unclear Monday morning what Rice will do next.
Following the announcement, Rice tweeted: “I am deeply grateful to @potus for trusting and empowering me to serve as his Domestic Policy Advisor. “I love the team @DPC and in the @WhiteHouse. There are no more dedicated public servants. I am so proud of all we have been able to accomplish together for the American people.”
