John McEntee, the former UConn quarterback whose trick shot video became a viral sensation in 2011, was sacked from his job as personal assistant to President Donald Trump on Monday, according to multiple reports. He joined the Trump campaign as a volunteer in August 2015 and quickly rose through the ranks. He was soon hired to a full-time position.

After serving as trip director for the campaign McEntee was brought into the White House as Trump's personal assistant, where he earned $115,000 a year.

He made headlines during Trump's May visit to Saudi Arabia as the "man in red tie".

It was announced today by the Trump Campaign that John McEntee will re-join the team and serve as the new Senior Advisor for campaign operations based in D.C.

McEntee escorted from the White House on Monday, three sources with knowledge of the matter told CNN. He left without his jacket, a second White House official said.

Tillerson, Lavrov fail to meet in Ethiopia
The two foreign ministers also discussed how to jointly combat terrorism and extremism in the Horn of Africa and Sahel region. Lavrov's visit is a reflection of outstanding and longstanding relation between the two countries, he noted.


McEntee declined a CNN request to comment.

In February, it emerged that former White House aide Rob Porter was allowed to remain in a sensitive post despite the F.B.I. learning of serious allegations of domestic abuse from two of Porter's former wives.

Concerns over White House staffers' security clearances have punctuated much of the West Wing news over the past several weeks. That means Kushner, whose portfolio includes the solving the Middle East peace process, no longer has regular access to the nation's most closely guarded secrets as the Federal Bureau of Investigation continues its almost 15-month review of his application for permanent clearance.

"As we build out our operations for the 2018 mid-term elections and the 2020 reelection campaign, we are pleased to welcome back two outstanding members of our 2016 team", campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement. "We need the help of porven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country".
