Lady Melania Trump has called for the sack of top White House aide after a row over plane seats.
A statement issued on Tuesday, called for the National Security Council adviser Mira Ricardel to be fired after clashes over Air Force One seats for the first lady’s staff during last month’s trip to Africa.
The Flotus’ spokesman Stephanie Grisham told ABC: ‘It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that (Ricardel) no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House.’
Ricardel, who is one of National Security Advisor John Bolton’s top aides, is also suspected of leaking damaging information about Mrs Trump, according to the Wall Street Journal. Meanwhile, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is also said to be in the firing line after similar clashes with Mrs Trump.
Tensions between Mrs Trump and Kelly are also said to have angered the president after his wife complained. He reportedly told Kelly to give the first lady whatever she wanted, adding: ‘I don’t need this shit. ”
