Ayers confirmed the decision in a tweet Sunday, thanking Trump and Pence for giving him the opportunity to work in the White House.

There were several people who were reported to be on the president's short list who seem to have taken their names out of the running.

But with the new year less than a month away and 2020 getting nearer on the horizon, Trump is likely looking to his re-election campaign in 2020 and making sure he has the right people in the right places.
