REPORT: National Security Council Aide Dismissed After His Criticisms of Trump – Mediaite


Following the resignation of Michael Flynn, a senior aide to the National Security Council was reportedly dismissed yesterday because of critical words he had for President Trump and Steve Bannon.

Craig Deare, according to Politico, sounded off on the administration during a private roundtable hosted by the Woodrow Wilson Center:

Deare harshly criticized the president and his chief strategist Steve Bannon and railed against the dysfunction paralyzing the Trump White House, according to a source familiar with the situation.

He complained in particular that senior national security aides do not have access to the president — and gave a detailed and embarrassing readout of Trump’s call with Mexican president Enrique Pena Nieto.

The Politico report says that the White House dismissed Deare after being informed of “reports that he had publicly laced into the president and his senior aides, including son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka Trump.”

Just yesterday a Housing and Urban Development official and aide to Ben Carson (nominated to head that department) was fired, reportedly for previous criticisms he had of the president.
