Entlassungen seit Jan. 20, 2017.

Fired | Jan. 30, 2017 Sally Yates | Acting attorney general
It was a Friday afternoon when Sally Yates learned from news reports of the president's executive order restricting entry into the United States from seven Muslim-majority countries. Yates, temporarily in charge of the Justice Department during the transition, decided to take a stand. She told Department of Justice lawyers not to defend the ban. Hours later, via a one-line letter from the White House, according to Post reporting, Yates became Trump's first fire.
Resigned | Feb. 2, 2017 Travis Kalanick | Advisory board member
Just days later, uproar over Trump's entry ban led to a second exodus. Travis Kalanick, then-chief executive of Uber, resigned from the White House economic council after pressure from staffers. Kalanick was also facing pressure from the 200,000 Uber users who quit the service (remember #DeleteUber) after the company continued to pick up airport patrons while taxi drivers were on strike. Kalanick's resignation helped assuage that backlash.
Resigned | Feb. 9, 2017 Gerrit Lansing | White House's chief digital adviser
As the Republican National Committee's top digital strategist in 2016, Gerrit Lansing made nearly million from an online campaign contribution platform he co-founded and reportedly urged GOP candidates to use. Maintaining ties to the company while working in the White House was an ethics violation, but Lansing refused to step away from the business. So, instead, he resigned.
Resigned | Feb. 13, 2017 Michael Flynn | National security adviser
On the same day that President Barack Obama announced sanctions against Russia for interfering in the 2016 campaign, Michael Flynn, who had not yet been sworn in, spoke to Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak on the phone five times. Flynn denied the calls were about sanctions - to his bosses, to the FBI and to The Washington Post. Then, on Feb. 13, The Post reported that transcripts of the calls revealed Flynn was lying. That night, the retired general resigned. He later pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI as part of a Russia probe.
Fired | Feb. 17, 2017 Craig Deare | Pick National Security Council's senior director
Nothing is really private in Washington - just ask Craig Deare. At an off-the-record event with academics at the Woodrow Wilson Center in February, the NSC's senior director for Western Hemisphere Affairs reportedly trashed Trump and two of his closest advisers for cutting him out of policy discussions about Latin America, in particular the administration's plan to build a wall along the Mexican border. The next day, Deare was fired.
Resigned | March 30, 2017 Katie Walsh | Deputy chief of staff
One of the few women with a senior role in the White House, Katie Walsh came to Team Trump from the Republican National Committee and served as top aide and closest ally to then-chief of staff Reince Priebus. She was gone after two months, sent to bolster the president's agenda through an outside pro-Trump group. The White House insisted her departure was not part of a shake-up and praised Walsh as a formidable problem-solver. But The Post reported that some officials saw her as a "leaky vessel."
Resigned | April 9, 2017 K.T. McFarland | Deputy national security adviser
When her boss, Michael Flynn, resigned in February 2017, McFarland was initially told she could keep her National Security Council post even after H.R. McMaster took over. But as part of a broader reorganization, she was instead offered the job as U.S ambassador to Singapore. McFarland, who has been under intense scrutiny in the Russia probe, later withdrew her name from consideration.
Fired | May 5, 2017 Angella Reid | White House chief usher
The White House chief usher is in charge of the first family's residential life and the staff who orchestrates that comfort. Angella Reid, appointed by Obama, was the first woman and second African American to hold the job. But she left abruptly in late April, replaced by a Trump hotel staffer. Historians and experts classified Reid's departure as highly unusual, particularly because the White House did not provide an explanation.
Fired | May 9, 2017 James Comey FBI director
The FBI director was at a recruiting event in Los Angeles when he saw a TV news report that he had been fired. At first, James Comey laughed. He thought it was a joke. The White House's justification for his dismissal was ever-evolving. Initially, it said Comey treated Hillary Clinton unfairly while investigating her emails during the 2016 presidential election. Then, in an NBC News interview, Trump contradicted himself. He said: "In fact, when I decided to just do it, I said to myself, I said, `You know, this Russia thing with Trump and Russia is a made up story, it's an excuse by the Democrats for having lost an election that they should have won.' "
Resigned | May 30, 2017 Mike Dubke | Communications director
A Republican strategist who came to the White House having not worked on the campaign on the transition team, Mike Dubke worked closely with then-press secretary Sean Spicer. But the two often caught heat from Trump and his closest allies, who believed the communications office failed him - particularly after the Comey firing. Dubke resigned from his post after three months.
Resigned | July 6, 2017 Walter Shaub | Office of Government Ethics director
With his consistent ridicule of the Trump administration's loose relationship with ethics, Walter Shaub earned himself a cult following among the president's critics. He challenged Trump to fully divest from his business holdings and chastised other White House officials. Six months before his tenure expired, Shaub resigned, citing his sense that he had accomplished all he could. Some considered the move a "protest resignation."
Resigned | July 20, 2017 Mark Corallo | Spokesman for Trump's legal team
After two months on the job, Mark Corallo resigned as the public face of the president's growing legal team, tasked with defending Trump as Congress and special counsel Robert S. Mueller III investigated the administration's relationship with Russia.
Resigned | July 21, 2017 Sean Spicer | Press secretary
Often a punching bag, Sean Spicer resigned in protest after Trump replaced his former communications director with wealthy financier Anthony Scaramucci. Spicer told The Post he was giving the office "an opportunity to have a clean slate," but his departure was characterized as abrupt and angry. Scaramucci had a contentious relationship not just with Spicer, but also White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, and Scaramucci's installment kickstarted a week of chaos. Spicer's exit was the beginning of a mass exodus.
Resigned | July 25, 2017 Michael Short | Senior assistant press secretary
As soon as Scaramucci took the helm, he hinted at a purge to eliminate leakers. A Politico report indicated Michael Short would be the first to go, though there was no evidence he had leaked information. The only problem: Nobody told Short. He resigned before he could be fired. That day, Scaramucci told reporters: "Let's say I'm firing Michael Short today. The fact that you guys know about it before he does really upsets me as a human being and as a Roman Catholic, you got that?"
Fired | July 27, 2017 Derek Harvey | National security council adviser
Harvey was the NSC's top official for the Middle East. But he and H.R. McMaster, his new boss, "had different visions for what the mission required," an official told The Post in July. Harvey, a retired Army colonel and influential voice on Iran, Syria and counterterrorism policy, said in a statement that the "tough" decision to leave was his own but came with "mixed emotions."
Resigned | July 28, 2017 Reince Priebus | White House chief of staff
One week after White House spokesman Sean Spicer resigned and 24 hours after communications director Anthony Scaramucci's expletive-laden interview was published in the New Yorker, Trump fired Reince Priebus. He replaced him with Department of Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly. Trump had come to perceive Priebus as unable to push through his legislative agenda.
Fired | July 31, 2017 Anthony Scaramucci | White House communications director
It didn't take long for John Kelly to make his first personnel move. Just days after taking the helm as White House chief of staff, Kelly Fired Anthony Scaramucci on his 10th day as communications director. Scaramucci's tenure was brief but full, marked by his tinted sunglasses and a public feud with Priebus. "The Mooch's" firing came the same day Trump insisted, via Twitter, that there was "no WH chaos" in his administration.
Fired | August 18, 2017 Stephen K. Bannon | White House chief strategist
After racial unrest in Charlottesville, Va., Trump and his new chief of staff dismissed Steve Bannon, perhaps the most embattled member of the president's inner circle. Bannon promptly returned to Breitbart, the conservative news site he ran before joining the White House, and vowed to continue elevating the platform that got Trump elected in 2016: a fear of globalization, an "America first" mindset and populist-nationalist rhetoric that has energized white supremacists.
Resigned | Aug. 25, 2017 Sebastian Gorka
The former national security editor of Breitbart News left the White House shortly after the exit of fellow Breitbart alumnus Stephen K. Bannon. In a resignation letter to Trump, Gorka wrote, "Regrettably, outside of yourself, the individuals who most embodied and represented the policies that will `Make America Great Again,' have been internally countered, systematically removed, or undermined in recent months."
Resigned | Sept. 5, 2017 Keith Schiller | Security
The former New York Police Department detective took over security at Trump Tower in Manhattan in 2004 and became one of the future president's closest confidants. Schiller served as Trump's personal bodyguard throughout the 2016 campaign, even as the billionaire was protected by a Secret Service detail, and joined his boss in the White House. But Schiller reportedly never planned to stay long and did not like Washington.
Resigned | Sept. 29, 2017 Tom Price | Health and Human Services secretary
Trump publicly chastised Price after it was reported that he traveled on costly private and military planes for government work on the taxpayer's dime. Price pledged that he would reimburse nearly ,000 - just a fraction of the cost of the full flights. Though it initially appeared the secretary would fight to keep his job, Price eventually resigned in a four-page letter to the president.
Resigned | Dec. 8, 2017 Dina Powell | Deputy national security adviser
A Middle East expert, Powell planned foreign trips for Trump during his first year in office and helped prepare him for meetings with world leaders. Colleagues said she always expected to serve for only a year.
Resigned (or fire) | Dec. 12, 2017 Omarosa Manigault | White House Off. of Pub. Liaison comm director
A former participant in Trump's show "The Apprentice," Manigault was tasked with, but didn't succeed in, improving Trump's relationship with African Americans. In a statement, the White House said Manigault "resigned # to pursue other opportunities." But a White House official told The Post that chief of staff John F. Kelly pushed her out. Manigault, who "did not go quietly," was escorted from the White House.
Resigned | Jan. 29, 2018 Andrew McCabe | FBI deputy director
Turmoil surrounded Andrew McCabe's brief tenure as acting FBI director after Comey's departure. When Christopher Wray was appointed as the new director, McCabe moved to the deputy position but came under scrutiny from Trump after news reports revealed that McCabe's wife, a Democratic candidate for the Virginia legislature, received campaign contributions from a Hillary Clinton ally. McCabe went on to oversee investigations of Clinton. McCabe's eventual retirement was expected, but the timing was not.
Resigned | Feb. 7, 2018 Rob Porter | White House staff secretary
Porter, who served as top enforcer in the chief of staff's quest to bring order to the West Wing, resigned after two ex-wives accused him of abuse. One woman presented photos of her blackened eye. Porter's ex-wives said they told the FBI about the alleged abuse in January 2017 during interviews for Porter's security clearance. Porter denied their claims, and the White House rallied to support him.
Resigned | Feb. 28, 2018 Hope Hicks | White House communications director
An original member of Trump's political team, Hicks rose to become the White House's top press aide, following brief tenures by three men. But she, too, succumbed to the grind of the job after 196 days. Particularly draining, according to Hicks's colleagues, was the episode involving her boyfriend, White House staff secretary Rob Porter, who resigned when two ex-wives publicly accused him of domestic abuse.
Resigned | March 6, 2018 Gary Cohn | Director of the National Economic Council
A Democrat and a former president of Goldman Sachs, Cohn was always an outsider in the administration of a populist Republican. Cohn tried to steer Trump toward free-trade policies but lost a major debate when Trump decided to impose tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.
Fired | March 13, 2018 Rex Tillerson | Secretary of state
On a diplomatic trip through Africa, Tillerson received a phone call in the wee hours of March 10 from White House chief of staff John F. Kelly. The message: Return to Washington; you're going to be fired. The State Department cleared the rest of Tillerson's Saturday schedule, claiming the secretary was ill. Three days later, Trump announced his plan to replace Tillerson with CIA Director Mike Pompeo.
Fired | March 13, 2018 John McEntee | Personal assistant to the president
Having lost his security clearance, McEntee could no longer perform his duties. The former University of Connecticut quarterback was reportedly the subject of a Secret Service investigation into his personal finances. He landed softly, however. Trump's reelection campaign immediately hired McEntee as a senior adviser.
