The Romford MP was one of 42 Conservative MPs who voted against the three-tier Covid-19 lockdown system on Tuesday, 13 October.
Mr Rosindell took to twitter to express his disappointment at being removed, describing the decision as “bizzarre” and “counterproductive”.
He claimed he was fired “simply for voting to keep our UK economy open for business.”
The Romford representative said: “Yes, we must fight the virus and all threats to the health of our nation, taking every precaution.
“However, closing down whole sections of our economy, putting companies out of business, creating mass unemployment and taking away the freedom that British people cherish, is not the answer and it won’t work.”
Mr Rosindell said it had been an “honour and a priviledge” to serve as the Prime Minister’s trade envoy. He was first appointed to the role by Theresa May in 2018.
