Trump's Personal Aide Reportedly Fired And Escorted From White House

White House Personal Aide to the President John Mc Entee and White House Director of Social Media Dan Scavino leave the White House on Nov. 29 2017 in Washington DC

"This is the most toxic working environment on the planet", an unnamed White House official told Axios.

President Donald Trump applauded the House bill, the White House said, though it falls far short of broader gun control legislation he talked about shortly after the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.

A unnamed source told CNN McEntee was sacked because the Department of Homeland Security is now investigating him "for serious financial crimes".

That makes McEntee at least the eighth administration official to be removed from the premises after being fired.

Under President Barack Obama, the post was an influential center of power within the White House occupied by his close friend Valerie Jarrett. In addition to the firing of John McEntee, Trump's longtime personal assistant, on Wednesday, an aide to first lady Melania Trump was reportedly escorted out. The role meant McEntee was almost constantly at the President's side.

McEntee had worked for Trump since the early days of his campaign. A White House spokesman declined to comment on McEntee's firing.

John F. Kelly, the White House chief of staff, has said in recent weeks that too many staff members were operating on interim security clearances because they could not pass Federal Bureau of Investigation background checks.

'This election is a referendum on the performance of President Trump'
If Connor Lamb beats Rick Saccone in Pennsylvania tonight, it will not be a Democrat beating a Republican. In a final-hours message on Fox Business Network, Saccone said that he's ready and willing to help Trump.

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 clearance would not be approved.

Legal and political issues aside, McEntee's departure is significant for emotional and psychological reasons.

McEntee's departure has several of Trump's closest advisers anxious about the effects on the president's mood.

Keith Schiller, his personal bodyguard for nearly two decades, departed the administration in September.

Hope Hicks, the outgoing White House communications director for Mr Trump, also recently announced her departure.

"As we build out our operations for the 2018 midterm elections and the 2020 reelection campaign, we are pleased to welcome back two outstanding members of our 2016 team", campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.
