Trumps Personal Assistant Is Fired

Source: The Wall Street Journal

John McEntee was escorted out of White House on Monday for unspecified security issue.

WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump’s personal assistant, John McEntee, was escorted out of the White House on Monday, two senior administration officials said. The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue, said a third White House official with knowledge of the situation.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders declined to comment saying, “We don’t comment on personnel issues.” Mr. McEntee didn’t return a call seeking comment.

Mr. McEntee was one of the longest-serving aides to Mr. Trump, dating back to the earliest days of the campaign when some of the only aides around the then-candidate included Jared Kushner, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser; Stephen Miller, the president’s policy director; White House communications director Hope Hicks, who announced her resignation two weeks ago; and Dan Scavino, who is the White House director of social media.

Mr. McEntee wasn’t as well known as the others, but had been a constant presence at Mr. Trump’s side for the past three years. He made sure Mr. Trump had markers to sign autographs, delivered messages to him in the White House residence and, over the weekend, ensured that the clocks in the White House residence were adjusted for daylight-saving time. “It’s not going to be great for morale,” one White House official said about Mr. McEntee’s departure.

6. "McEntee will rejoin the campaign as a senior adviser of operations."

WaPo reports the president's campaign announced this immediately after McEntee was escorted out. It's so far being claimed Trump "fired" him for security reasons, but how likely is it that TRUMP was concerned about security? Something blew up/happened, and Trump lost another one from his long-time circle.
