Trump's Personal Assistant Fired Over Security Issue

And it highlights the extent to which the re-election campaign has already become a landing pad for former Trump associates who have left the White House but remain loyal to the President.

McEntee was escorted off the White House premises and was not given time to get his things, leading him to leave the grounds without his coat, according to the Journal.

Mr McEntee was sacked amid a US Department of Homeland Security investigation against him for financial crimes, CBS News reports.

This source says the charges are not Trump related.

The Wall Street Journal, which was the first to break the news of McEntee's ouster, reported that he was removed because of an "unspecified security issue", citing an unidentified White House official.

McEntee managed to keep a low profile in a campaign and White House often embroiled in controversy. He was also a star football player at the University of CT, a walk-on who became the starting quarterback.

"We don't comment on security clearances or personnel issues", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders told CNN in a statement. Porter had been working on a temporary security clearance, as his background check revealed he had been accused of domestic abuse by two former wives.

Trump's 2020 Republican campaign announced Tuesday that he will serve as a senior adviser for campaign operations.

Minutes after news of his departure broke, the Trump campaign announced McEntee would be joining the reelection effort as a senior adviser for campaign operations.

Both Pierson and Parscale previously worked at America First Policies, a nonprofit promoting Trump's agenda.
