The Wall Street Journal first reported that the 27-year-old was let go because of “an unspecified security issue.”
While McEntee may no longer work at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Trump's 2020 Republican campaign announced that McEntee will serve as a senior adviser for campaign operations.
On March 13, the day after McEntee was allegedly escorted out of the White House, The Wall Street Journal reported, Trump announced in a tweet that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson will be replaced by Mike Pompeo, the current director of the CIA.
In 2011, McEntee was seen completing a series of impressive trick shots in a video that would later go viral.
He reportedly sent a series of emails to Trump’s campaign team asking how he could get involved.
