Trump's Top Aide To Step Down, Day After Melania Called For Removal

Trump's Top Aide To Step Down, Day After Melania Called For Removal

Aides had said Ricardel had pushed for a seat to be reserved on the first lady's plane for a National Security Council representative to brief her during the trip.

The first lady asked her husband to fire Ricardel, a rare move in any White House.

Meanwhile senior White House officials suspect Ricardel of leaking details of the administration to the press. As Mr. Kelly's hand-picked successor, she has clashed with Mr. Bolton over proposals for dealing with a caravan of migrants from Central America approaching the U.S. Trump also gave aides permission to spread whispers about Ricardel's overstepping, several people familiar with the matter told the Post.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Ms Ricardel will have a new role in the administration.

This wealth of data provided the extraordinary accuracy needed to identify the influence of the planet with near certainty. The nearest single star to the Sun hosts an exoplanet at least 3.2 times as massive as Earth - a so-called super-Earth.


Sanders did not elaborate on what Ricardel's new job would be.

Three current and two former White House sources told the Washington Post that Ricardel had "spread rumors" about Secretary of Defence James Mattis, argued with the first lady, berated people at meetings and yelled at staff.

Fleischer said it was "remarkable" to see Mrs. Trump effectively go around the president in public to accomplish the goal of Ricardel being ousted.

Another expected reshuffle casualty is Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, a Kelly ally who oversees the politically sensitive task of carrying out Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration.

While the Republicans held onto their Senate majority, the Democrats scored heavy gains to take over the House, confronting the president for the first time with the prospect of an opposition that has teeth.

The president also criticized the ongoing Russian Federation investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller as a "total mess" and a "disgrace to our nation". Trump also replaced his attorney general Jeff Sessions last week immediately after heavy losses during the mid-term elections.

The other main takeaway from Trump's trip was a PR blunder when the White House cancelled his plan to visit an American military cemetery due to rain grounding the presidential helicopter.
