On Tuesday, Melania Trump's spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham revealed that the first lady is seeking Ricardel's removal from her post.

"That is a classy way to diss somebody", Colbert noted.

Two presidential aides said Trump was considering forcing out deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel, but as of Tuesday afternoon, the adviser remained in her West Wing office.

If not the undersecretary for management, Trump is reportedly considering Kevin McAleenan, the commissioner of US Customs and Border Protection and David P. Pekoske.

Senior White House adviser Kellyanne Conway attempted to cast doubt Tuesday on the anonymously sourced reports about a staff shake-up.

Kelly has been protective of Nielsen, who he has worked with for many years.

Some points of contention reportedly involved seating on the plane during the trip and whether or not the first lady and her staff could use National Security Council resources.

The constant fighting almost led to Nielsen's resignation, but she was talked into staying be her mentor John Kelly.

At the peak of controversy over the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" family-separation initiative, Ms Nielsen nonetheless stood at the White House lectern and delivered a vigorous defence of the measures.

Trump is also considering replacing Kelly, an ardent defender of Nielsen, with Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff, Nick Ayers, the Reuters source said.
