Trump’s personal assistant, Madeline Westerhout, is out as Trump’s personal assistant after she leaked information about Trump to reporters:
AXIOS – President Trump’s longtime personal assistant Madeline Westerhout suddenly resigned on Thursday, 2 people familiar with her departure told the New York Times.
According to 1 of the anonymous sources, Trump reportedly discovered that Westerhout shared private details about his family and White House operations. The exchange took place at a recent off-the-record dinner with reporters, per Axios’ Jonathan Swan, and the information got back to the White House. “The breach of trust meant immediate action,” per the NYT, adding Westerhout, who has been with Trump since the first day of his presidency, was immediately deemed a “separated employee.”
This is high stakes. For her to betray Trump to reporters is something he cannot, and apparently will not tolerate. So good for him for taking decisive action.
Of course, you know exactly Democrats are going to target her next to try and dig up dirt on Trump. I’m sure they are hoping she turns on Trump like Scaramucci.
Exit question: I wonder if Trump looked at Westerhout and said “You’re fired”.
