Trump personal assistant dismissed, joins '20 campaign

On Tuesday, President Donald Trump fired longtime personal aide John McEntee, who had been with Trump since the early stages of his 2016 campaign.

McEntee was escorted out of the White House on Tuesday, according to the Wall Street Journal, as part of a "unspecified security issue". He was escorted off the White House grounds before he was allowed to collect his belongings, even leaving without his jacket, the Journal reported.

But the faithful Trump aide didn't go far as he was immediately hired by the President's reelection campaign team.

McEntee is just the latest aide to leave the White House amid issues with his security clearance, after White House chief of staff John Kelly enacted a series of reforms following the scandal involving disgraced White House staff secretary Rob Porter.

McEntee became internet famous around this time seven years ago with his trick shot video.

McEntee was UConn's leading passer in 2011, but he threw for just 2,110 yards at 6.3 yards per attempt with 12 touchdowns and eight picks.

After graduating, McEntee took a job with Fox News as a production assistant. McEntee's role was described as "body man", always staying by Trump's side.

Trump's personal assistant - also known as a body man - McEntee accompanied the president nearly everywhere and had been an aide for him since early in the campaign. Mr. McEntee didn't return a call seeking comment.

Trump's White House has seen a rash of exits recently.
