Reince Priebus replaced as White House chief of staff

Reince Priebus replaced as White House chief of staff”

"The president has tried to convince the general multiple times, and the general has politely declined several times", one administration official told the newspaper. When I said we were brothers from the podium, that's because we're rough on each other.

"They'll all be fired by me", he said of the White House communications staff.

The President broke the news on Twitter when the plane landed, welcoming incoming chief of staff Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly. In a series of tweets just before 17:00 (22:00 GMT) on Friday, the president praised the former Marine Corp general as a "great American" and a "great leader".

He added, "I can't think of a better person than Gen. John Kelly to succeed me and I wish him God's blessings and great success".

Mr Kelly, a retired four-star general who has been serving s Homeland Security Secretary, will have his work cut out. Those tensions burst wide open into public view Thursday when it was revealed that Scaramucci, who refers to himself as "The Mooch", called a reporter and unloaded on Priebus.

Scaramucci told The New Yorker: "He'll be asked to resign very shortly".

Priebus' already tense relationship with Anthony Scaramucci took a darker turn over the past 24 hours when the communications chief suggested in a late-night tweet that Priebus was one of the "leakers" that President Donald Trump has railed against. "It's something that I think the White House needs".

Kelly is a retired Marine Corps general and the former commander of the U.S. Southern Command.

BROOKS: Well, you know, as a New Yorker, I want to apologize on behalf of 8 million New Yorkers to the whole country for the way we talk, though even by our standards Scaramucci is a bit of an extreme, extreme outlier.

What role has he played in Trump's administration so far?

Samsung sends out invites for Galaxy Note 8
The Note 8 could cost upwards of $1,000 as well, but this could increase depending on conditions at the time it launches. Also, it is worth noting that the update still doesn't bring the option to hide the navigation bar on these devices.

It would appear that this different direction is John Kelly, Donald Trump's pick to replace Priebus. The president, Priebus said, will definitely get reelected in 2020.

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus may have little left of his job but his title.

White House chief strategist Steve Bannon is expected to stay, at least for now, sources told CNN.

DIONNE: Well, I think in an odd way, Priebus was always a kind of artificial appendage.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said discussions about Priebus's departure had been taking place for weeks.

The fact that Priebus is the one who is out certainly lends credence to the idea that the NY contingent, which believes in letting Trump be Trump, is ascendant in the White House.

If Trump genuinely believed all that, Priebus would not have been made to make a humiliating retreat into the torrential rain then sheeting across the capital through the afternoon.

Both Priebus and Spicer were part of the Republican National Committee, and the bridge that linked the party to Trump.

He said he is more focused on MS-13 because it is "particularly violent", saying MS-13's members do not like to shoot their victims because death comes too fast.

In his final Pentagon news conference, Kelly spoke about the loss of his son - a topic he didn't often discuss publicly.
