Less than a week ago, Donald Trump’s personal assistant John McEntee was abruptly fired and led out of the White House without his coat. The issue, according to a report from the Washington Post, was that McEntee has a high-dollar gambling habit—the sort of thing that was previously unimaginable among senior aides, it could pose a potential security risk.
Trump immediately hired McEntee to work for his campaign. Now, a new report from Politico suggests Trump may try to bring McEntee back to the White House. The report cites an anonymous source inside the White House who says that discussions about bringing McEntee back were brought up by chief of staff John Kelly during a staff meeting on Friday morning.
A second source said “aides said discussions about rehiring him are still in the early stages.”
Following his dismissal, McEntee’s profile was raised in the White House, with reporters diving into his career as a quarterback known for making showy throws. You can see his trick-shot tosses below.
