For Immediate Release

Political appointees are appointed at the discretion of the White House to carry out the President’s foreign policy agenda at USAID. I have full confidence that each political appointee at USAID has and will continue to implement the President’s policies and agenda to the best of his or her ability.

I want to specifically condemn the unwarranted and malicious attacks on Deputy Chief of Staff Bethany Kozma, Deputy White House Liaison Merritt Corrigan, and Religious Freedom Advisor Mark Lloyd.

USAID is honored to have Bethany Kozma, Merritt Corrigan, and Mark Lloyd serve at the agency. They are committed to enacting the policies of President Donald J. Trump.
