WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's personal aide was removed from the job and escorted out of the White House Monday, though he quickly rejoined the president's campaign.

John McEntee, who served as the president's personal assistant, was escorted out, according to two people close to the White House who sought anonymity to discuss private conversations. He was one of a shrinking group of former campaign aides still working in the turbulent West Wing.

Trump on WH exits: 'Everybody' wants to work for my administration

  Trump on WH exits: 'Everybody' wants to work for my administration President Trump on Tuesday dismissed reports of chaos inside his administration amid recent White House departures, claiming that his administration has a wealth of applicants for key positions. placeDuring a joint press conference with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan L fven, the president told reporters that "everybody" wants to work in his White House.

Trump's 2020 Republican campaign announced Tuesday that he will serve as a senior adviser for campaign operations. White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders declined to comment on the reasons for his departure, saying only that McEntee was going to the campaign.

In response to news reports about McEntee's exit, Rep. Elijah Cummings, the ranking Democrat on the House oversight committee, sent a letter to chief of staff John Kelly requesting all documents related to McEntee's employment and departure.

McEntee, who was well liked in the West Wing, occupied a key White House role, never far from Trump in the White House or on the road. His exit comes after a number of key aides have left the building.

Trump announced Tuesday that he had ousted Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Trump's top economic adviser, Gary Cohn, left recently amid internal debate over Trump's plans for tariffs. Communications director Hope Hicks also recently announced her departure.

Like Hicks, McEntee was part of a small group of aides that had been with Trump since his campaign. Their departures could leave Trump more isolated in his second year in office.

House Democrats say they have proof State Dept. staff was pushed out over disloyalty to Trump .
Whistleblower documents suggest several career personnel were targeted as part of “cleaning” initiative.The ranking Democrats on the House Foreign Affairs and Oversight and Government Reform committees sent a letter to White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly and Deputy Secretary of State John Sullivan, writing that they received documents “indicating that high-level officials at the White House and State Department worked with a network of conservative activists to conduct a ‘cleaning’ of employees they believed were not sufficiently ‘supportive’ of President Trump’s agenda.
