Matthew Doherty, executive director of the U.S. Interagency Council on Homelessness (USICH), has left his post at the Trump administration’s request, reports The Washington Post.

A holdover from the Obama administration, Doherty "wrote in an email to colleagues that the administration 'no longer wishes to have me' in the position. Doherty also announced on Twitter that he was leaving at the administration’s request," reports Jeff Stein.
