White House aide Mira Ricardel removed after Melania Trump row

H8 mira kelly split

Fleischer said most people don't pay attention to staff shakeups in the White House, but the perception of "chaos" negatively affects the administration.

National security adviser John Bolton tapped Ricardel in April to serve as his deputy, hailing her "track record of successfully managing teams and diverse organizations, as well as addressing complex issues".

She previously served as acting assistant secretary for global security policy under former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

Another expected reshuffle casualty is Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, a Kelly ally who oversees the politically sensitive task of carrying out Trump's crackdown on illegal immigration.

Maddow referred to it as a "straight-up bizarre" story about the First Lady's office seeking to fire the Deputy National Security Advisor Mira Ricardel. A member of the Council on Foreign Relations, she had joined the White House in May this year.

Officials did not dispute that other people, beyond the first lady's office, have complained about what they consider to be Ricardel's abrasive, yelling manner.

Quoting an official, CNN reported that US President Donald Trump was angry - "Yes, he's pissed - at damn near everyone", the official said.

Trump wanted a 100 per cent secure plan that could ensure the termination of nuclear projects in Iran, CNN reported . Twitter users were quick to interpret the official French army tweet as a slight directed at Trump.

Mattis then blocked Ricardel from getting a high level job at the Pentagon.

Her sin? Reportedly rowing with Melania Trump's staff over seating allocations on the plane taking the first lady on an Africa tour in October, as well as being blamed for negative news coverage.

"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.

But her position had been tenuous for several days, with a White House official telling NBC News that she was "not long for this world" after a series of clashes with the first lady's office and with officials in the West Wing, including Kelly.

She recalled a famous incident when Nancy Reagan got Ronald Reagan's chief of staff Don Regan axed.

McBride, executive in residence with the Center for Congressional and Presidential Studies at American University, said most White House employees know - or should know - the power and authority of first ladies.
