In One Chart: Trump is cycling through cabinet members faster than Obama, Bush or Clinton

Brookings Institution

President Donald Trump is a little more than three months into the third year of his presidency, and already, turnover in his cabinet is outpacing his recent predecessors’ entire first terms.

Trump announced that Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen would be the latest to leave and will be replaced with Customs and Border Protection chief Kevin McAleenan in an acting role.

Nielsen’s was the second exit from the cabinet in 2019, coming on the heels of 10 departures in 2018 and three the year before that, according to this Brookings Institution tracker. Those who have come and gone include former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
