Washington sources reported that President Donald Trump was under pressure from his wife, Melania, to fire his deputy national security adviser over what two sources close to the White House said was the way Mrs. Trump's trip to Africa was handled. Accordingly two presidential aides said Trump was considering forcing out deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel, but as of Tuesday afternoon, the adviser remained in her West Wing office.
Meanwhile Melania Trump's office took the extraordinary step of issuing a statement saying that Ricardel should be ousted, while first ladies historically have been known to pressure their husbands over official business, they do not typically issue statements about it. Furthermore she gave no reason for why the first lady wanted Ricardel out but several officials said it was related to Mrs. Trump's trip to Africa in October.
Moreover the first lady had complained to the president that she was unhappy with how she was treated by Ricardel, a former Boeing Co executive who worked on the Trump presidential campaign and was picked by national security adviser John Bolton to be his deputy earlier this year. Further the sources said that Melania Trump explicitly asked the president to oust Ricardel after their dealings over the Africa trip "didn't go well." One source said that Melania Trump felt that Ricardel tried to short change the first lady when it came to government resources allocated to support her Africa tour.
