A personal assistant to President Donald Trump reportedly resigned abruptly on Thursday for divulging information to the media.

The New York Times reported that Madeleine Westerhout, director of Oval Office operations, met with reporters in New Jersey for an off-the-record dinner while the president was on vacation.

Westerhout reportedly shared information with the reporters about the Trump family and other affairs in the White House.

The Times said that the administration has labeled Westerhout a "separated employee" and will not allow her back into the White House.

Westerhout was born in California and worked previously as an intern on the 2012 presidential campaign for Mitt Romney.

Some questioned her loyalty to the president after a recent book about the White House reported that she cried in anguish in 2016 when the election results rolled in.

In 2016, she worked as a "greeter girl" for visitors to the Trump Tower during the transition period after the election.

Westerhout had served the president as his personal assistant since the first day of his presidency.

Here's a video report about the rise of Westerhout:
