Trump aide departs West Wing after rebuke from first lady

Trump aide departs West Wing after rebuke from first lady”

U.S. deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel is leaving the White House, one day after first lady Melania Trump's office issued an extraordinary statement calling for her dismissal.

Animosity between two reportedly arose over a dispute about Melania Trump's visit to Africa.

In locking horns with the First Lady, she seems to have come off second best to the person the president trusts the most - his wife.

On Tuesday the office of the First Lady had gone public saying, deputy national security advisor Mira Ricardel "no longer deserves the honour of serving in this White House".

A White House spokeswoman said Mrs Ricardel "departs the White House to transition to a new role within the administration".

Ms Ricardel's ouster comes as Mr Trump considers a range of changes to his administration.

A senior member of the White House staff has been removed from her post after reports of angry clashes with the First Lady Melania Trump. Bolton brought her into the West Wing shortly after he took the job in April.

While Melania Trump's dislike for Kelly remains a rumor, she was fully open in a rare, protocol-busting demand for the firing of Bolton's deputy Ricardel.

And yet repeatedly during Ricardel's tenure, news stories trickled out of the troubled White House that suggested she wasn't managing teams or working within them particularly well.

"I'm not going to go into a hypothetical of what if, who if", she said. Next on the list is Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.

"We saw yesterday a flurry of reports that [Ricardel] had been essentially frog marched out of the White House on the orders of the First Lady amid unspecified tensions between her and the First Lady's office", she noted.

Pressure is mounting from the probe, as the special counsel Robert Mueller digs ever more deeply into the president's inner circle.

The Department of Justice ruled on Wednesday that Mr Whitaker's appointment is in fact constitutional, but this will do little to calm claims that Trump's real goal is to defang the Russian Federation probe, which he describes as "a witch hunt".

'The White House is running very smoothly and the results for our Nation are obviously very good.
