Trump fires his personal assistant, John McEntee, then Trump campaign hires him

Mr McEntee was sacked amid a US Department of Homeland Security investigation against him for financial crimes, CBS News reports.

President Donald Trump's personal assistant John McEntee was abruptly escorted out of the White House on Monday night - and now a new report from CNN claims that he was ousted due to an investigation into what may be "serious financial crimes".

Also announced Tuesday, former spokeswoman Katrina Pierson was hired by the campaign as a senior adviser. Two sources initially said McEntee was pushed out because of issues with his security clearance, but another source familiar with the matter later said he had been granted a permanent security clearance before was abruptly fired. He is someone who has earned the trust of the president and is a top-notch professional, Sean Spicer, former White House press secretary, told Politico in October.

While it's unclear why McEntee was sacked, the Journal reported that there may have been something in McEntee's background check.

He was often the first person to greet the President in the morning and saw his stature rise after longtime Trump security guard Keith Schiller left last fall.

McEntee was escorted from the White House and was not allowed to collect his belongings. He looks to have already landed on his feet - just minutes after news of his departure broke, it was announced that McEntee would be joining Trump's reelection team as a senior adviser. While he was by no means a superstar on the field - McEntee led the Huskies to a 5-7 record with 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions in 2011- he did find viral fame thanks to a trick shot compilation video posted to YouTube.
