Trump`s advisor forced to step down after Melania`s pressure


White House Deputy National Security Adviser Mira Ricardel has been ejected from her post following a high-profile dispute with First Lady Melania Trump. She was removed from her post yesterday (Wednesday), International media said.

This step has been taken following Melania Trump`s statement that said `Ricardel no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House`.

In a statement, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said, "Ricardel will continue to support the president from a new role of this administration." However, Sanders didn`t clear about the post.

Trump`s National Security Adviser John Bolton brought former Department of Commerce official Ricardel to work as his assistant.

A senior US administration official said that Melania Trump and Recardel reportedly feuded during a tour of Africa in October. Some have also said that Rickardel has a reputation of stern behavior with White House staffs.

Several US officials have said that President Donald Trump is going to bring more changes to the cabinet after losing the authority of the council in the last week`s congressional elections and also preparing to remove White House Chief of Staff John Kelly or Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
