McEntee immediately joined Trump’s re-election campaign for 2020 as a senior adviser.
A CNN reporter tweeted Tuesday that McEntee was terminated because he is under investigation for “serious financial crimes” by the Department of Homeland Security.
McEntee served as Trump’s body man during the campaign and into the White House alongside the President’s longtime bodyguard Keith Schiller, who left the White House last fall. The role meant McEntee was nearly constantly at the President’s side.
Let’s pause for a moment and consider. How could the person constantly at the President’s side have time to commit financial crimes without the President knowing about it, or being a part of it? If the President was so worried about the thought that McEntee had committed financial crimes that he needed to be fired, why would Trump hire him immediately for his campaign…unless Trump needed more people involved with his campaign who had experience with financial crimes?
