Aide who drew Melania Trump's ire is out of her job

Trump was convinced that Ricardel was spreading false information about her office and planting negative stories in the media about her stay in Egypt.

Ricardel is an ally of National Security Adviser John Bolton. A seat was pulled from the National Security Council to accommodate a journalist, which angered the official.

"She and the chief have a very positive working relationship", Stephanie Grisham, communications director for the first lady, told The Washington Times in an email.

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

But Ms Sanders didn't say what Ms Ricardel's new job would be, and didn't respond to follow-up questions. National Security Advisor John Bolton became aware of Mrs. Trump's complaints, but Ricardel kept her office until this week, when the FLOTUS office publically called for her removal.

Another source said that Mrs Trump felt that Ms Ricardel tried to short-change the first lady in terms of United States government resources allocated to support her Africa tour.

The newspaper also reported that she repeatedly clashed with US Secretary of Defense James Mattis over "staffing decisions and policy differences".

Maddow updated her viewers that was announced that Ricardel would be leaving the White House.

Ricardel's departure comes just a week after Donald Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Despite her praise for the chief of staff, Costa pushed Schlapp to discuss whether a woman might be interviewed for Kelly's job if he left.

An ally of national security adviser John Bolton, Ricardel began her service in the Trump administration as associate director in the White House Office of Presidential Personnel, then moved to the Commerce Department a year ago.

Sources said that Mrs Trump explicitly asked the president to oust Ms Ricardel after their dealings over the Africa trip "didn't go well".

But Ms Nielsen remained in her job on Wednesday, two days after the "Washington Post" first reported that Mr Trump planned to remove her, and she travelled to the border with Defence Secretary Jim Mattis to review the work of U.S. soldiers Mr Trump deployed before the midterm elections last week.
