In March 2018, then-chief of staff John F. Kelly had McEntee escorted out of the White House. According to the Times, Kelly's decision was in part due to McEntee's online gambling habits.

However, after being ousted from the White House, the former aide was reportedly hired by Trump's re-election campaign.
