Farah, 31, began her White House tenure as press secretary under Vice President Pence, before joining the Defense Department as press secretary last September, and returned to the White House as communications director in April. She is the first person to serve in these three roles in one administration, and the youngest Pentagon press secretary.

Farah’s departure, with little over a month remaining in President Trump’s administration, amounts to a tacit acknowledgment that — despite his baseless and dangerous claims to the contrary — Trump lost the 2020 election, and much of his team is now pondering their post-White House future.

On the Saturday after the election, when the presidency was widely called for president-elect Joe Biden, Farah offered a call to unity on Twitter, writing, “There is more that unites as a Nation than divides us,” along with three American flag emoji.
