Trump's Personal Assistant Fired Over Security Issue

McEntee was sacked and escorted out of the White House Monday, CNN reported, due to difficulties obtaining a permanent security clearance, an issue that has led to the departure of several White House staffers.

That left Mr. McEntee, who worked on the president's campaign and was brought into the White House to be Mr. Trump's "body guy", the aide who travels with the president wherever he goes. There is no suggestion the investigation is connected to Mr Trump in any way.

McEntee's duties included making sure Trump had markers to sign autographs, delivering messages to the president at his residence and ensuring the White House clocks were adjusted this past weekend for daylight saving time, The Wall Street Journal reported. When Trump told stories about his campaign "originals", the aides who have been with him from the start, Melania would remind him to include McEntee. He apparently left his jacket at his former workplace, said another White House official.

John McEntee served as the president's personal assistant.

Oil prices fall on relentless rise in United States crude output
While Patterson does see healthy oil consumption, he said growth may slow and fail to completely absorb gaining American output. Only Russia pumps more, at almost 11-million barrels a day.

In response to news reports about Mr McEntee's exit, Elijah Cummings, the top-ranking Democrat on the House Oversight Committee, sent a letter to chief of staff John Kelly requesting all documents related to Mr McEntee's employment and departure. According to multiple reports, he's under a financial crimes investigation.

McEntee has been one of Trump's few mainstays over his political career.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders declined to comment saying, "We don't comment on personnel issues".

The 2020 reelection campaign team includes newly appointed manager Brad Parscale, who ran the social media wing last time around.

Mr. McEntee's departure has several of Mr. Trump's closest advisers anxious about the effects on the president's mood. "We need the help of proven leaders such as Katrina [Pierson] and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country".
