Why is Mira Ricardel leaving the Position of Deputy National Security Adviser?

The White House announced Wednesday that Ricardel would be leaving her role as deputy national security adviser and would take a different role in the administration.

The dispute spilled into public view in extraordinary fashion on Tuesday when the first lady’s office released a statement calling for deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel’s ouster as reports surfaced that President Donald Trump would fire the official.

“It is the position of the Office of the First Lady that (Ricardel) no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House,” the first lady’s communications director Stephanie Grisham said in a statement on Tuesday.
