The head of the Housekeeping Department says President Donald Trump was not being treated fairly when he was asked to step down from his duties in 2017.
In an exclusive interview with Breitbart News, the Housekeeper Supervisor, Mark T. Dittmar, said Trump was told by the House Administration Committee that the job was his to do and the committee would decide if he was eligible to stay on as supervisor.
“I believe he was being treated very, very unfairly by the Committee,” Dittampar said.
“I was told, ‘The job of Housekeeping is to oversee the performance of the Department.
There are rules that govern the way that Housekeeping does their job.
If you are being mismanaged by someone and you want to go back and fix that, you can come back and do that.
But if you don’t, you are not getting a fair hearing.'”
In his resignation letter, Trump wrote that the “Housekeeping Service is not the same job as the Department of Homeland Security and the Office of Management and Budget, and I have learned of their mismanagement.
As I am sure you will agree, the work of Housekeepers is critical to the functioning of the nation’s public servants, and the American people deserve to have a fully functioning Government.”
He continued, “The Housekeeping Service must be treated with the same respect and dignity that it deserves and that I have earned and continue to earn as the head of this great institution.”
Dittmar added that he was disappointed in Trump’s decision to leave his post and that he did not believe the House was the best place to run a government.
“It’s unfortunate that we are not the most successful, efficient, successful organization in the country, but I think there’s no other way to describe it,” he said.
