Trump personal aide fired, escorted out without coat

John McEntee, a personal assistant to President Donald Trump, was sacked and escorted from the White House on Monday.

The charges are not related to the President, the source said. McEntee's role was described as "body man", always staying by Trump's side. He was escorted off the White House grounds before he was allowed to collect his belongings, even leaving without his jacket, the Journal reported. He also had issues with his security clearance.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders declined to comment saying, "We don't comment on personnel issues". The almost five-minute video, which you can relive below, featured McEntee doing everything from throwing footballs into barrels and basketball hoops to opening doors with his throws. His 2020 re-election campaign said Tuesday McEntee will serve as senior adviser to the campaign.

John McEntee was sacked because he is being investigated by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes, CNN noted. He joined the Trump campaign early on when aides were scarcely more than Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law and current senior adviser-though his security clearance was recently downgraded-and Hope Hicks, the former White House communications director who announced she would resign two weeks ago.

Kelly sought to limit access to classified information for aides with longstanding interim security clearances and several aides have since left the White House after it became clear their applications for a full security clearances would not be approved.
