White House chief usher Angella Reid has been fired. Reid was the first woman and the second African-American to hold the position.

Reid’s departure was sudden, according to The Washington Post. When White House staff reported to work Friday, they were informed that Reid was not employed there anymore.

“We are very grateful for her service and wish her the very best,” a White House official said, the Post reported. Reid wouldn’t comment on her departure and left it to the White House to explain.

Deputy White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said during Friday’s daily briefing that the deputy usher would be acting as chief usher for the time being.

“We left on very good terms and wish her the best and certainly hope for great things for her in the future. However, it’s not uncommon you might have a transition of staff when a new administration comes in. It’s nothing more than that,” The Washington Post reported.

Reid has been chief usher since 2011, one of only nine people who held the position since before the 20th century, The Washington Post reported.

The chief usher handles the day-to-day management of the White House, including construction, food, and personnel as well as administrative duties like scheduling.

Twitter was generally uncharitable toward the Trump administration in speculating about why Reid was let go.
