In yet another shocking development in the White House, Donald Trump's personal assistant was fired. The news comes only moments after Rex Tillerson was given the boot as Secretary of State.

Trump chaos

On Tuesday morning, Donald Trump fired Rex Tillerson as Secretary of State, ending his year-long stay stay in the White House. The news came as a surprise to many, including Tillerson who was reportedly not even given a reason for his exit.

The Washington Post first broke the story, which Trump confirmed minutes later on his Twitter feed. In addition to Tillerson's firing, the president has also lost his top assistant.

According to The Hill on March 13, John McEntee, Donald Trump's personal assistant, was fired on Tuesday morning and escorted out of the White House. The Wall Street Journal first reported the news, citing two senior administration officials who elaborated on McEntee's exit stemming from "unspecified security issue." The paper also noted that McEntee was not even allowed to gather his personal belongings and was quickly rushed out of the White House.

McEntee had been with the former host of "The Apprentice" since the early days of his campaign for president, being put in charge of handling basic tasks such as providing Trump with daily messages and making sure the clocks were properly set for daylight savings time.

McEntee gone

Despite this, the White House later commented and noted that John McEntee is expected to rejoin the administration in the role of "senior adviser." When asked for her thoughts, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn't give too much information, instead deciding to punt on the question, saying, "we don't comment on personnel issues."

Moving forward

While the firings of Rex Tillerson and John McEntee, their exits mark yet another shakeup in the administration.

Within the last two weeks, Communications Director Hope Hicks announced her resignation, as well as top economic adviser Gary Cohn. As expected, Trump and his team have downplayed the departures, though critics of the president have cited the moves to double down on reports of continued chaos in the Trump administration. With the aforementioned exits, Trump is facing increased reports of trouble within his team as the Republican Party gears up for a competitive midterm election, with the 2020 presidential election just around the corner.
