Trump's Personal Assistant Fired Over Security Issue

John McEntee, a former personal aide to President Donald Trump, was sacked from the White House on Tuesday.

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. He was escorted off the White House grounds before he was allowed to collect his belongings, even leaving without his jacket, the Journal reported.

Mr McEntee, who was most recently seen travelling to Pennsylvania with Mr Trump for a rally on Saturday, was expected to join the president in California on Tuesday before his sacking.

The announcement came on the same day Mr Trump fired his secretary of state.

John McEntee was unceremoniously removed from his position because the Department of Homeland Security is investigating him for "serious financial crimes", CNN reported, citing an unidentified source familiar with his termination. He looks to have already landed on his feet - just minutes after news of his departure broke, it was announced that McEntee would be joining Trump's reelection team as a senior adviser. The White House did not comment on the firing.

McEntee was an early Trump assistant in the presidential campaign. Mr. McEntee didn't return a call seeking comment. McEntee's role was described as "body man", always staying by Trump's side. "We need the help of proven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country".

McEntee reportedly told colleagues that the firing was related to his background check. In particular, WSJ indicated there was an issue with his security clearance.
