President Trump has removed Secretary of State Rex Tillerson and replaced him with CIA Director Mike Pompeo in a move that stunned Washington with its timing.
Trump is nominating Gina Haspel, Pompeo’s current deputy, to lead the CIA.
Trump told reporters Tuesday morning that he made the decision “by myself,” signaling he did not speak with Tillerson before firing him.
“I actually got along great with Rex, but really, it was a different mindset,” Trump said from the White House.
But he did ‘t stop there he decided to drain the swamp totally today and John McEntee was fired and escorted out of the White House!
According to CNN, McEntee “was fired because he is currently under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes.” So he’s dispatched to the Trump campaign?
9:30AM — John McEntee has been loyal to Donald Trump since early in the Trump campaign, but now he joins the list of White House employees fired. McEntee was Trump’s personal assistant and former body man.
The Wall Street Journal reports, “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.”
