Today marks 18 months since the inauguration, a wild and historic ride that has produced record White House turnover.

By the numbers: 61% of President Trump’s senior-most aides have left the White House, the White House Transition Project’s Martha Joynt Kumar tells AP. That's much higher attrition at this point than the last five presidents, with Bill Clinton in second at 42%.

Very, very few top aides are left who were there on Jan. 20, 2017, Jonathan Swan notes.

  • Those who were: Jared Kushner, Kellyanne Conway, Stephen Miller, Don McGahn, Dan Scavino, Johnny DeStefano, Sarah Sanders, Raj Shah, Avi Berkowitz, Lindsay Walters, Madeleine Westerhout, Bill Stepien, Derek Lyons, Peter Navarro, Andrew Bremberg, and Jessica Ditto.

Today is the last official day for Deputy Chief of Staff Joe Hagin and Legislative Affairs Director Marc Short.

China said Monday that it will ban entry to Sens. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) and Ted Cruz (R-Texas) over their criticisms of human rights abuses in Xinjiang, the AP reports.

The big picture: The move seems to be retaliatory after the U.S. announced sanctions on four Chinese officials for human rights abuses against Uighur Muslims and other ethnic minorities in the region last week.

Roger Stone told Axios in a phone interview that he plans to write and speak for President Trump's re-election now that Stone "won't die in a squalid hellhole of corona-19 virus."

"I'm asthmatic," said Stone, 67. "Sending me to a prison where I could not be socially distanced ... would, I think, be a death sentence."

Facebook's plan: Make nice, but don't give in

Facebook last week took steadily intensifying heat from fleeing advertisers and boycott leaders and received a big thumbs-down from its own civil-rights auditors. Its response, essentially: We hear you, but we'll carry on.

The big picture: Early on in Facebook's rise, CEO Mark Zuckerberg learned to handle external challenges by offering limited concessions and soothing words, then charging forward without making fundamental changes.
