Trump aide Ricardel forced out after showdown with first lady Melania

She previously served as acting assistant secretary for global security policy under former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld.

Presidential spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement, "Mira Ricardel will continue to support the President as she departs the White House to transition to a new role within the Administration".

On Tuesday, Melania Trump sought her removal.

The protocol-busting move followed a falling out that press leaks say was partly linked to a dispute over seating arrangements on the plane that took the first lady for a tour of African countries in October. Her office also suspected Ricardel of being the source of negative press about the first lady and her staff.

Bolton hired Ricardel in April from the Commerce Department.

Among Nielsen's critics has been National Security Adviser John Bolton, who last month was widely reported to have erupted in a shouting match with Kelly right outside the Oval Office over her performance.

He continued: "And like honestly, I don't even know who this is, Mira Ricardel-who is this person that they are firing?"

Ricardel also had a fraught relationship with Kelly and Fuentes, according to people familiar with the matter. She previously worked in the Defence Department under President George W Bush.

President Donald Trump complained on Thursday about news reports that his White House is in disarray, following a week that has saw him fire a national security aide at his wife's request, shove Attorney General Jeff Sessions out the door, and show signs of readying pink slips for his chief of staff and Homeland Security secretary.

Ms Ricardel's ouster comes as Mr Trump considers a range of changes to his administration.

But Ms Nielsen remained in her job on Wednesday, two days after the "Washington Post" first reported that Mr Trump planned to remove her, and she travelled to the border with Defence Secretary Jim Mattis to review the work of USA soldiers Mr Trump deployed before the midterm elections last week. She earned a reputation as an enforcer and fierce bureaucratic infighter, clashing with White House chief of staff John Kelly and Defense Secretary James Mattis. He is traveling in Asia this week alongside Vice President Mike Pence.
