"Mr. McEntee wasn't as well known as the others, but had been a constant presence at Mr. Trump's side for the past three years", the newspaper reported.

President Trump's personal assistant was let go on Monday - escorted from the White House without being allowed to get his coat, according to reports. His abrupt firing came out of nowhere and there was no warning, they said.

McEntee worked with Trump from the earliest days of his presidential bid, joining the Trump team in 2015. He regularly traveled with Trump, and was seen boarding Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House as Trump headed for Pennsylvania on Saturday.

His exit comes two weeks after White House communications director Hope Hicks, also a long-serving staffer, stepped down.

Should the Detroit Lions sign Jonathan Stewart, DeMarco Murray?
Stewart, 30, has spent his entire 10-year career with the Carolina Panthers , who took him 13th overall in the 2008 NFL Draft . You may have heard late Sunday evening that the Lions are scheduled to host 3x Pro-Bowl running back DeMarco Murray today.

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. 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. The official, who requested anonymity to discuss personnel issues, said McEntee had been expected to travel with Trump - as he always does - when the President departed for a trip to California on Tuesday.

"We need the help of proven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country", campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.

The Wall Street Journal, which was the first to break the news of McEntee's ouster, reported that he was removed because of an "unspecified security issue", citing an unidentified White House official.
