Trump Names Homeland Security Chief Kelly as White House Chief of Staff

Scaramucci owns a stake in the New York mets

Wisconsin Republicans are not happy with the departure of Reince Priebus as President Donald Trump's chief of staff. "He is a Great American", the tweet stated.

Priebus' hold on the White House job has always been in question, more so this week after Trump's new communications director badmouthed him to a reporter for the New Yorker.

"As we watch the dust settle on all of this, the big question ends up being one thing - Can this new White House Chief of Staff help President Trump pass his agenda on Capitol Hill?" Anna and I are proud to call him and his wife, Karen, friends. Kelly, a four-star US Marine Corps general, was previously employed as the secretary of homeland security before retiring a year ago.

Scaramucci swiftly responded to the news by asking media outlets to leave his family out of coverage of him and the Trump administration.

On Kelly's appointment, Priebus said: "I think General (John) Kelly is a brilliant pick".

He added of the retired Marine general: "John Kelly will do a fantastic job".

The move follows months of speculation that Priebus was not long for the job, which grew to a fever pitch when Trump took on rival Anthony Scaramucci as his communications director last week.

Carmelo Anthony, Thunder may have mutual interest, but is trade realistic?
Adams and Kanter aren't just a dynamic duo off the court - they provide a complete package together near the rim for the Thunder . Looks like there is a new suitor for New York Knicks veteran small forward Carmelo Anthony and there could be mutual interest.

Krauthammer called Priebus "a good man", but said the structure Priebus had in place at the White House was not working and effectively making it an administration in "chaos".

Scaramucci was the latest top aide to be granted a direct line to Trump, and it became increasingly unclear who actually reported to Priebus.

"So this is not like a situation where there's a bunch of ill-will feelings", Priebus said. "I'm not going to get into the mud on that", he told Blitzer when asked about Scaramucci.

As for his successor, Priebus had only positive remarks to say about Kelly.

No formal announcement has been made about whether or not Priebus resigned or was sacked from the position.

Ryan, the nation's third-highest ranking Republican, said Priebus "achieved so much and he has done it all with class". He later told CNN he backed Mr Trump's decision. "Thanks to Reince Priebus for his service to our country".
