First Lady Melania Trump appears to have successfully pushed Mira Ricardel out of the NSC- but not the administration

First Lady Melania Trump appears to have successfully pushed Mira Ricardel out of the NSC- but not the administration

CNN reported that the first lady's statement caught the president off guard and that he was "furious" she put him in this position.

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

Colbert described the statement as "a classy way to diss somebody", and then imagined the next statement: "Furthermore it is the position of this office that the first lady will cut a bitch".

Ricardel's ouster comes as Trump considers a range of changes to his administration. "Seriously, this just happened".

An ally of national security adviser John Bolton, Ms 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 past year.

In a statement Presidential spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said that after barely seven months in the job Ricardel "departs the White House to transition to a new role within the Administration", without elaborating on what that role might be.

The President told people on Tuesday that he had made the decision to fire Ricardel, but that he was giving her time to clear her desk, making her the latest in a long list of high ranking officials who have left or been bootedfrom the Trump administration.

Trump insisted his presidency was running smoothly, despite the rumors that he might get rid of Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

The first lady signed off on Ms Grisham's statement, according to two people familiar with the matter.

Mr Bolton brought her into the West Wing shortly after taking the job in April.

The outlet's sources, who shared their insight on the condition of anonymity, also revealed that Ricardel caused disruptions during Melania Trump's trip to Africa.

She's regarded as inflexible and obsessed with process, which some officials complain has complicated co-ordination between the NSC and cabinet agencies. A member of the Council on Foreign Relations, she had joined the White House in May this year. He is traveling in Asia this week alongside Vice President Mike Pence.
