Trump's Personal Assistant Fired Over Security Issue

Trump's Personal Assistant Fired Over Security Issue President Trump's personal aide fired, escorted from White House without getting coat

McEntee was one of Trump's longest-tenured staffers, having joined during the campaign.

USA media reported his abrupt exit came about due to difficulties in obtaining a full security clearance.

"The man made famous for telling people 'You're fired!' doesn't seem to be able to say to it people's faces", the CNN anchor snarked, obviously referencing Trump's previous job as host of The Apprentice.

And it highlights the extent to which the re-election campaign has already become a landing pad for former Trump associates who have left the White House but remain loyal to the President.

President Donald Trump fired his longtime personal assistant, John McEntee, who is reportedly under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for financial crimes.




McEntee wasn't allowed to collect his belongings ― including his jacket ― before being escorted out, according to the Journal. McEntee told fellow Trump aides that he had resigned.

Before McEntee was working for Trump, he was a viral star, known for a trick-shot compilation video he released while he was quarterback for the UConn Huskies in 2011.

"We don't comment on security clearances or personnel issues", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told CNN in a statement. McEntee couldn't be reached for comment.

Mr McEntee won't be fully out of the Trump orbit, however. Hope Hicks, the director of communications, has announced she is leaving in the coming days.

Minutes after news of his departure broke, the Trump campaign announced McEntee would be joining the reelection effort as a senior adviser for campaign operations. "We need the help of proven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country".
