The issue, according to a report from the Washington Post, was that McEntee has a high-dollar gambling habit-the sort of thing that was previously unimaginable among senior aides, it could pose a potential security risk.

The scene aboard the presidential plane as Donald Trump departed for California was described by Politico.

Mr. Tillerson's sacking came less than two weeks after Mr. Trump's top economic adviser Gary Cohn quit in protest against the President's decision to levy tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

The public and most journalists learned Trump had swung the axe on Twitter.

Kelly has also worn on the president, confidants of the president said.

The president is said to remain pleased with Mattis, as the defense secretary rarely publicly disagrees with Trump and has succeeded in quietly working through any differences, according to three White House officials and outside advisers. Others relate a franker conversation.

The New York Times reported that Tillerson was told to cut short his diplomatic trip and return to Washington on the call.

In that latter version of events, Tillerson asked Kelly to persuade the president to keep his powder dry until he returned to the USA on Monday.

Goldstein attributed it vaguely to 'demands in the secretary's schedule'.

The outgoing diplomat told reporters shortly after 2:00 p.m. on Tuesday that he had talked with Trump around lunchtime. I stand between the press and the president.

Reports of tumult in the administration were at a feverish pitch - even on his beloved Fox News - as the president reflected on the latest staff departures during an Oval Office conversation with Vice President Mike Pence and Chief of Staff John Kelly. The president is enjoying the process of assessing his team and making changes, tightening his inner circle to those he considers survivors and who respect his unconventional style, one senior White House official said...

Trump's nominee to be the next secretary of state -CIA director Mike Pompeo - is a longtime favorite of the president who has demonstrated rare ability to navigate the West Wing.

'They wrote a story about staff changes today that was very false, ' Trump said, without singling out any news outlet. "But I like watching it, I like seeing it, and I think it's the best way to go".

'I've gotten to know a lot of people over the last year.so there will always be change, but very little'.

"Contrary to what's been reported, H.R. and I are still here", he added, referencing reports that Trump was considering ousting both his chief of staff and national security adviser HR McMaster.
