Trump personal assistant dismissed, joins '20 campaign

Trump personal assistant dismissed, joins '20 campaign

President Donald Trump's longtime personal assistant, John McEntee, was sacked from his White House position on Monday. McEntee was subsequently hired as a senior advisor on Trump's reelection campaign.

John McEntee served as the president's personal assistant.

It wasn't clear why McEntee, a well-liked figure in the White House, had been dismissed, and campaign aides weren't given a reason.

He made headlines during Trump's May visit to Saudi Arabia as the "man in red tie". He was escorted off the White House grounds before he was allowed to collect his belongings, even leaving without his jacket, the Journal reported.

Details of Mr McEntee's dismissal have been scarce, with only a foreboding report that he was under investigation for "serious financial crimes" - ones not tied to any current Trump controversies.

The White House declined to comment, telling the Wall Street Journal, "We don't comment on personnel issues". In particular, WSJ indicated there was an issue with his security clearance.

McEntee was sacked from his job as an assistant to president Donald Trump on Monday. McEntee will remain in Washington to work on Trump's re-election campaign for 2020 along with former Trump spokeswoman Katrina Pierson.

"We need the help of proven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country", Parscale added.

In response to news reports about McEntee's exit, Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House oversight committee, sent a letter to chief of staff John Kelly requesting all documents related to McEntee's employment and departure. He gained internet fame with a compilation of quarterback trick shots posted on YouTube in 2011. As of Tuesday, the video had over 7 million views.
