Conflicting reports have emerged about the job status of a woman previously working in Donald Trump's inner circle, with one media outlet saying she had left her position at the White House after revealing information about the US President's family.

Madeleine Westerhout, who had been in her role since the start of the Trump administration in 2017, is said to have stepped down on Thursday.

"I really think she had a bad night".

While Westerhout "has a fully enforceable confidentiality agreement, she is a very good person and I don't think there would ever be reason to use it", Trump tweeted. He adds: "I love Tiffany".


The New York Times said Westerhout was now a "separated employee" and would not be allowed into the White House.

As the president attempts to sort out his trade disagreements with China that have roiled markets, hurt manufacturing and created chaos for America's farmers, MSNBC regular Eugene Robinson said that Trump is also crippling his plan to return to the Oval Office after 2020. She is a wonderful person. A reporter divulged details about the dinner to White House staff, the people said. "She said she was drinking".

She made the critical comments during an off-the-record dinner with reporters who were covering Trump's vacation at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. "I absolutely believe Donald Trump told his assistant that his daughter Tiffany is overweight and that he didn't want to be in photos with her".

Westerhout served as a gatekeeper to the president, having a desk outside the Oval Office.


Manigault Newman was sacked in December 2017 after she recorded and publicized private conversations she had with former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly.

Retired Admiral James Stavridis, left, dean of Fletcher School at Tufts University, is escorted by Madeleine Westerhout as he arrives at Trump Tower in New York City on December 8, 2016.

Ms Westerhout had previously worked for the Republican National Committee, and during Mr Trump's transition, she was often seen escorting guests through the lobby of Trump Tower in NY.

"She told me she was very upset", Trump told reporters before boarding Marine One.
