...John McEntee, President Trump's former body man who was fired by former chief of staff John Kelly over security clearance issues and recently returned to the West Wing, is expected to lead the Presidential Personnel Office, according to two sources with direct knowledge.
...Trump sees McEntee as the ultimate loyalist, and he has assigned him the powerful role of picking personnel across the federal government.
...McEntee's move to PPO comes immediately after the news that Hope Hicks, former White House communications director and a close Trump aide, will also return to the White House and will work closely with Jared Kushner.
...The bottom line: With McEntee at the helm of PPO, Trump's hardcore allies will have a freer hand than ever with personnel across the federal government.
