The office is responsible for thousands of lower level appointees, as well.
The White House declined to comment on McEntee's new role, which was first reported by The New York Times.
McEntee is viewed as a loyal aide to Trump having worked on his campaign.

Multiple reports said it was related to a gambling habit.
The Times reported in December that McEntee was expected to return to the West Wing as an assistant to the president.
