White House In Crisis: Racist Trump’s Personal Asst. John McEntee, Fired, Escorted Off Grounds

President Donald Trump’s personal assistant, John McEntee, was escorted out of the White House on Monday, two senior administration officials said. The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue, said a third White House official with knowledge of the situation.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders declined to comment saying, “We don’t comment on personnel issues.” Mr. McEntee didn’t return a call seeking comment.


Mr. McEntee was one of the longest-serving aides to Trump, dating back to the earliest days of the campaign when some of the only aides around the then-candidate.


Mr. McEntee wasn’t as well known as the others, but had been a constant presence at Mr. Trump’s side for the past three years. He made sure  Trump had markers to sign autographs, delivered messages to him in the White House residence and, over the weekend, ensured that the clocks in the White House residence were adjusted for daylight-saving time.


“It’s not going to be great for morale,” one White House official said about Mr. McEntee’s departure.


Mr. McEntee was removed from the White House grounds on Monday afternoon without being allowed to collect his belongings, a White House official said. He left without his jacket, a second White House official said.
