Rob Joyce, Trump’s cybersecurity coordinator, is leaving the White House and returning to the National Security Agency, Reuters’ Dustin Volz reports. Joyce and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed the coming departure to Axios.

The trend: A string of other departures from the National Security Council have also been announced following the arrival of Trump's new National Security Advisor, John Bolton. That includes Joyce’s boss, Trump's homeland security advisor, Tom Bossert, as well as deputy National Security Advisor Ricky Waddell, Spokesman Michael Anton, and Nadia Schadlow.
