McEntee indicated to colleagues that there was an issue in his background that may have prevented him from gaining full security clearance and led to his dismissal, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday.

A source tells CNN's Kaitlan Collins that "McEntee was sacked because he is now under investigation by the Department of Homeland Security for serious financial crimes", although the source also emphasizes that these potential crimes are "not Trump related".

Mr McEntee, who was most recently seen travelling to Pennsylvania with Mr Trump for a rally on Saturday, was expected to join the president in California on Tuesday before his sacking.

Trump's personal assistant - also known as a body man - McEntee accompanied the president nearly everywhere and had been an aide for him since early in the campaign. "We need the help of proven leaders such as Katrina and John to promote the President's growing portfolio of achievements across the country".

The 27-year-old former University of CT quarterback is more widely known for a viral YouTube trick throw video than his work with Trump.

All disruptive activities in the state would be handled firmly; development and positive activities of the government would automatically curb violence", said Deb.

Before McEntee was working for Trump, he was a viral star, known for a trick-shot compilation video he released while he was quarterback for the UConn Huskies in 2011.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders declined to comment saying, "We don't comment on personnel issues".

McEntee served as Trump's body man during the campaign and into the White House alongside the President's longtime bodyguard Keith Schiller, who left the White House last fall.

The president's campaign then announced McEntee will rejoin the reelection campaign as a senior adviser of operations, Washington Post reported.
