White House says "no immediate personnel changes at this time"

U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. Mc Master leaves his office at the end of the day at the White House in Washington

Mr Tillerson's sacking came less than two weeks after Mr Trump's top economic advisor Gary Cohn quit in protest against the president's decision to levy tariffs on imported steel and aluminum.

Another name being thrown around is that of Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin; a holdover from the Barack Obama White House, he is under fire for apparent ethics violations and appears to be grasping to keep his job as well.

Positive news included the University of Michigan's consumer sentiment index rising to 102 in March, its highest level since 2004, from February's 99.7.

Meanwhile, sources told CBS News that Kelly, who has been known to vex the president from time to time, could also be on the way out of the administration. Many rumors about possible firings are fueled by Trump himself, they said, because he complains to aides and friends about other staff members or muses about who might make good replacements.

The White House comment came after the Washington Post reported that Donald Trump was planning to remove H. R. McMaster.

It's the very question that has the whole White House on edge. The latest shakeup occurred earlier this week when Trump announced Secretary of State Rex Tillerson would be replaced by CIA Director Mike Pompeo. The descriptions of the administration in turmoil are based on interviews with 19 presidential advisers and administration officials, many of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to offer candid perspectives. In addition to the firing of John McEntee, Trump's longtime personal assistant, on Wednesday, an aide to first lady Melania Trump was reportedly escorted out.

Flynn was sacked within weeks of Trump's inauguration, ostensibly for lying to Vice President Mike Pence about conversations that Flynn had with Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Sergey Kislyak, during the transition.

They also said the administration was considering replacing McMaster last fall, but hesitated because appointing a third national security adviser in less than a year would not reflect well on Trump.

"Trump has publicly said that he respects H.R. McMaster, but their relationship has not been an easy one", Tom tells NPR's Rachel Martin on Morning Edition.

Trump has expressed frustration with aides whom he believes try to "manage" him according to several current and former White House officials - and has grown exhausted of efforts by his staff to stall controversial actions they disagree with.

Concerns have grown after officials were seen being escorted out of the building.

"If Iran and Russian Federation do not stop enabling the regime atrocities and adhere to UN Security Council resolutions, all nations must respond more forcibly than simply issuing strong statements", he said. Last month, Trump rebuked him on Twitter for neglecting to defend the president's 2016 victory while discussing USA claims that Russian Federation interfered in the election.
