Susan Rice resigns as senior advisor to the Biden administration

She has been a member of the Domestic Policy Council since Jan. 20, 2021. She will leave office on May 26.

Susan Rice has resigned as Joe Biden's senior domestic policy advisor, a position she has held since Jan. 20, 2021. Her last day in office will be May 26, according to federal sources.

Through her Twitter account, Rice thanked Joe Biden for having trusted her for the position:

Joe Biden issued a statement in which he thanked "her tireless efforts":

I surprised a lot of people when I named Ambassador Susan Rice as my Domestic Policy Advisor. Susan was synonymous with foreign policy, having previously served as National Security Advisor and UN Ambassador. 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.

Rice has a long history in politics. Under the Obama administration, she served as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations and national security advisor. In 2021, she joined the Biden administration as its national policy advisor.
