  • White House Personal Aide to the President John Mc Entee and White House Director of Social Media Dan Scavino leave the White House on Nov. 29 2017 in Washington DC

Mr McEntee was sacked amid a US Department of Homeland Security investigation against him for financial crimes, CBS News reports.
