John McEntee was sacked from his job as President Donald Trump's "body man" on Monday, as he is reportedly under investigation by the Depertment of Homeland Security for "serious financial crimes", according to CNN.

McEntee is under investigation for "serious financial crimes", according to CNN.

If there was any issue with McEntee inside the White House, Trump's campaign hasn't acknowledged it. McEntee couldn't be reached for comment.

President Donald Trump's re-election campaign announced on Tuesday Mr McEntee would join as a "senior adviser for campaign operations".

As per the schedule, if needed be, polling will be held on 23 March while all processes of election will be completed by 26 March. Later, celebrations broke out at the party office as party activists made a beeline to congratulate the Rajya Sabha candidates.

But a senior administration official said numerous President's top aides were shocked by the abrupt departure, which the official described as a sudden decision. A since-fired State Department employee said this morning that Tillerson found out he was sacked when he saw Trump's tweet.

News of McEntee's firing - which occurred on Monday - broke on Tuesday morning.

McEntee, who joined the Trump campaign in its first months, is the latest of the President's longest-serving aides to leave or announce plans to leave the White House, following the resignation of White House communications direct Hope Hicks two weeks earlier.

For Trump, the absence of McEntee strips away another of the handful of close associates who have constantly been by his side as he made the transition from real estate mogul to politician. "We need the help of proven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country". His staff secretary, Rob Porter, resigned February 7 after reports that two ex-wives had accused him of domestic violence. The cause of the firing was an unspecified security issue, said a third White House official with knowledge of the situation.
