Trump aide abruptly fired - then hired by Trump's 2020 team

McEntee was escorted from the White House and was not allowed to collect his belongings.

"The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue", the Wall Street Journal reported, citing a White House official.

President Donald Trump has fired his White House personal assistant John McEntee, who had been with the president since early in his campaign, an administration official confirmed Tuesday. WSJ wrote that the aide "indicated to colleagues that it was an issue in his background".

Though McEntee traveled alongside Trump, his profile was relatively low compared to other aides with similar tenure, like senior adviser Stephen Miller or the White House's director of social media Dan Scavino. CNN added more specifically that McEntee is "currently under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes".

Trump's top economic adviser Gary Cohn left recently amid internal debate over Trump's plans for tariffs.

According to Paris Dennard, a Republican operative and close ally to Trump, McEntee will now rejoin the campaign team along with Katrina Pierson.

Just minutes after the report, the Trump re-election campaign announced that McEntee would re-join as a senior advisor for campaign operations. He made sure Trump was prepared when he met with people, delivered messages to the president in the residence portion of the White House. "We need the help of proven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the president's growing portfolio of achievements across the country".
