First lady Melania Trump’s office on Tuesday called for the firing of the top deputy to national security adviser John Bolton, in a statement from the East Wing.
“It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that she no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House,” Trump’s communications director Stephanie Grisham said about deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel.
The Wall Street Journal reported earlier Tuesday that President Trump was considering removing Ricardel from her position after she feuded with his wife during the first lady’s trip to Africa last month over seating on the plane and requests to use National Security Council resources. The first lady’s office also suspected Ricardel was behind some negative stories about Trump and her staff.
Ricardel attended a Diwali ceremony at the White House on Tuesday.
