Trump Personal Assistant Reportedly Fired Over Security Issue

Former UConn QB, Famous for Trick Shot Video, Fired as President Trump's Personal Assistant

It is still unclear what led to McEntee's ousting.

If there was any issue with McEntee inside the White House, Trump's campaign hasn't acknowledged it.

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. According to the Wall Street Journal, McEntee was escorted out of the White House and was not even allowed to gather his belongings. The charges are not related to the President, the source said. Two sources initially said McEntee was pushed out because of issues with his security clearance, but another source familiar with the matter later said he had been granted a permanent security clearance before was abruptly fired.

Trump's personal assistant - also known as a body man - McEntee accompanied the president nearly everywhere and had been an aide for him since early in the campaign.

Axios's Jonathan Swan touched on how devastating this will be for morale inside the White House. McEntee couldn't be reached for comment.

Trump fired his secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, on Tuesday, and his top economic adviser Gary Cohn resigned last week.

U.S. media reported his abrupt exit came about due to difficulties in obtaining a full security clearance. McEntee's role was described as "body man", always staying by Trump's side. Hope Hicks, the director of communications, has announced she is leaving in the coming days. McEntee was subsequently hired as a senior advisor on Trump's reelection campaign.

"We need the help of proven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country", campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.
