Trump's Personal Assistant Fired Over Security Issue

Trump's Personal Assistant Fired Over Security Issue

It was a windy winter's day in Washington DC with temperatures in the low 40s on Monday when President Donald Trump's long-time body-man was abruptly fired over "an unspecified security issue" and escorted off White House property so quickly that he didn't even have time to grab his jacket, according to a new report. The charges are not related to the President, the source said.

He made sure Trump had markers with him while travelling in order to sign autographs, delivered messages to him while at the White House and even set clocks during daylight savings time, according to the Journal.

While it's unclear why McEntee was sacked, the Journal reported that there may have been something in McEntee's background check.

His swift departure comes amid a series of security clearance issues in the White House.

Also Tuesday, the Trump campaign announced that Katrina Pierson, who served as the campaign's 2016 national spokeswoman, will rejoin the effort as a senior adviser.

It wasn't clear exactly why Mr. McEntee was sacked Monday.

"We don't comment on personnel issues", she said.

White House personal aide to the President John McEntee (L) and White House Director of Social Media Dan Scavino leave the White House with U.S. President Donald Trump November 29, 2017 in Washington, DC. He was a near-constant presence in the West Wing, and was one of a select group of staffers who were often summoned by the President to the White House residence. That means Kushner, whose portfolio includes the solving the Middle East peace process, no longer has regular access to the nation's most closely guarded secrets as the Federal Bureau of Investigation continues its almost 15-month review of his application for permanent clearance.

The Wall Street Journal first reported the news of his exit. He will join the Trump campaign instead. "We need the help of porven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country".
