Trump names new Chief of Staff to replace Reince Priebus

Scaramucci ignites fierce White House fight: 'Shiv in ribs'?

Rift between Trump staff aired in tweet

President Donald Trump has picked the retired Marine general to replace Reince Priebus as his chief of staff. Kelly says that he is "honored to be asked" to take the job.

"At one point, during a meeting in the Oval Office, a fly began buzzing overhead, distracting the president", reports The Post.

"He is a Great American. and a Great Leader".

To appoint Kelly, the former Homeland Security secretary, as his chief of staff, is a huge gamble, but in keeping with Trump's style.

From the moment Trump became president on January 20, Priebus was the source of near-constant speculation about how long he would last in a White House riven by warring factions.

The relationship between Priebus and Trump - one a creature of the Republican establishment who rarely speaks in definitives, the other a Manhattan outsider famous for his brash language - goes back much farther than is widely known.

"I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff", Trump told his more than 34.8 million followers on twitter soon after his return from NY.

Mr. Bannon also helped bring Mr. Kelly into the administration during the transition, and was among those who supported his move to chief of staff, an official familiar with his position said.

Both Scaramucci and Priebus travelled to New York's Long Island with Trump on Friday for a speech in which the president highlighted efforts to crack down on the gang MS-13.

The appointment of Scaramucci, a prominent television surrogate for Trump during the campaign, prompted the immediate resignation of White House press secretary Sean Spicer on July 21. Both Sessions, who has beensavaged on Twitter by Trump for his recusal from the Justice Department's Russian Federation probe, and Bannon, who was insulted by Scaramucci, are portrayed as not loyal enough to the president by Trump himself and by the new key player in the White House, Scaramucci.

His departure follows a series of public attacks from newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci, a Washington outsider and former Wall Street financier.

Trump broke the news in the only way we've come to expect from him: on Twitter. After the debate, Trump accused Kelly of being unfair to him and insinuated that she was menstruating.

Kelly had been serving as secretary of Homeland Security in the Trump administration. He equates leaks, which have plagued the administration, with treason and knows how to work the halls of Congress, which the White House has also had trouble doing.
