In the US, Deputy National Security Advisor Mira Ricardel has been removed from her post.


„Mira Ricardel will continue to support the president as she leaves the White House and moves into a new role within the government,“ said US President Donald Trump spokeswoman. Details of how exactly Ricardel’s new role will look like or who should succeed her in office were not mentioned by Sarah Sanders.

Only a short time before, Melania Trump had publicly stated through her spokeswoman that Ricardel no longer deserved to work for the President: „It is the attitude of the First Lady’s office that she no longer deserves the honor of serving in the White House.“ it said in the statement of Tuesday. The fact that the First Lady meddles in important personnel issues, is considered highly unusual.

As reported, among others, CNN and the „Wall Street Journal“, Ricardel is said to have clashed with First Lady employees during Melania Trump’s Africa trip in October. In addition, she should be suspected of having brought negative stories about the President’s wife in circulation.

Former Boeing manager Ricardel was a member of Donald Trump’s campaign team and was personally selected by security adviser John Bolton earlier this year to become his deputy. She is considered his close confidante.
