Trump's Assistant McEntee Is Said to Be Fired But Joins Campaign

News of McEntee's departure, first reported by The Wall Street Journal, came shortly after Trump tweeted that he would be replacing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson with CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

According to CNN White House correspondent Kaitlan Collins, however, McEntee was sacked in connection with an ongoing investigation conducted by the Department of Homeland Security. There is no suggestion the investigation is connected to Mr Trump in any way. The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue, said a third White House official with knowledge of the situation.

Angella Reid - May 5, 2017: The first female White House chief usher was dismissed for reasons that seemed unclear to her at the time, although Axios reports that she was "considered mean" by staffers.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters declined to discuss the situation with the Journal, saying, "We do not comment on personnel matters". "The White House's ongoing obstruction of congressional oversight appears to be an attempt to hide from the American people pervasive and widespread dysfunction inside the White House, which directly threatens our nation's security". "We need the help of porven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country".
