Since writing the original piece, some other major shake ups have occurred in the Trump Administration prompting me to add to the list. Additionally, after some more research I found out about other White House personnel changes that I omitted from the first piece.
Here is the current tally of White House staff changes as of Jul 31st 2017-
5 nominees withdrawn
177 top Cabinet positions unfilled
It is also worth mentioning that Trump has yet to nominate or announce 62% of White House jobs under the level of Secretary. 10 of the 15 Cabinet Positions are operating without a Deputy Secretary, amounting to a total of 177 top level positions unfilled (114 of which have not even been announced or nominated) (1)
