Seventy-eight percent of the top jobs in President Donald Trump's administration have turned over in the first 32 months of his presidency — equaling that of Ronald Reagan but more than the first terms of the four previous administrations, a new study finds.

The report, released last week by the Brookings Institution, found that 31% of those key Trump positions have turned over at least twice.

The most recent change in President Trump's primary staffers was last week's appointment of Robert O'Brien as national security adviser, the fourth person to hold the post.

O'Brien had been the administration's top hostage negotiator.

Brookings examined 65 "A Team" jobs in the executive office of the president. The posts included chief of staff, White House counsel, press secretary, director of legislative affairs, and communications director.

The document, however, separately tracked the changes among Trump Cabinet secretaries — showing that nine of the 15 Senate-confirmed positions in the presidential line of succession have turned over.

That number is higher than any of the past five presidencies, according to Brookings.

Regarding the non-Cabinet jobs, here's how Trump's showing compares with previous administrations:

  • Barack Obama: 71%.
  • George W. Bush: 63%.
  • Bill Clinton: 74%.
  • George H.W. Bush: 66%.
  • Ronald Reagan: 78%.
