Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump on Saturday doubled down on defending his youngest daughter, Tiffany Trump, on the heels of his longtime personal assistant’s ouster.

Madeleine Westerhout was pushed out of the White House for sharing intimate details about Trump’s family with reporters, multiple people tell CNN. Still, on Saturday, Trump called his former assistant “a very good person” while also reaffirming his love for his daughter in a tweet.Madeleine Westerhout, Trump's gatekeeper, was known for her loyalty -- until she was pushed outMadeleine Westerhout, Trump's gatekeeper, was known for her loyalty -- until she was pushed outMadeleine Westerhout, Trump's gatekeeper, was known for her loyalty — until she was pushed out“While Madeleine Westerhout has a fully enforceable confidentiality agreement, she is a very good person and I don’t think there would ever be reason to use it,” Trump tweeted Saturday morning. “She called me yesterday to apologize, had a bad night. I fully understand and forgave her! I love Tiffany, doing great!” Trump made a similar comment to reporters Friday about his daughter as he departed for Camp David.
