Donald Trump's Presidency

John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security.

"There is a widespread feeling among Trump supporters that he has never been a real supporter of Donald Trump and that he isn't playing to win on the president's behalf", said an outside Trump adviser.

Kelly, 67, a retired four-star Marine Corps general, will assume the chief of staff post on Monday. "I will continue to serve as a strong supporter of the President's agenda and policies", he said.

Priebus, who hails from Wisconsin and has deep ties to House Speaker Paul Ryan, had grown increasingly isolated in the White House, as past Republican National Committee colleagues and other allies have left or been pushed out.

Earlier, the New York Post has reported that Scaramucci's wife, Deidre Ball's "naked ambition, which is so enormous that it left her at her wits' end". The rest of the White House staff did not know about the decision until they read about it on Twitter.

After the announcement Friday, the president offered kind words about Priebus while delivering praise for Kelly. "Professional people don't discuss private conversations in public".

Political analyst Scott Spradling said it became evident this week that Priebus's days were numbered. "He intuitively determined that it was time to do something differently and I think it was right".

Reince Priebus said he resigned on Thursday. But Sessions is refusing to take the hint - insisting that if Trump wants him gone, then Trump is going to need to fire him.

FBI director James Comey learned he had been fired by Trump on the news. Duke earned a degree from the former New Hampshire College, now known as Southern New Hampshire University. In a tweet, Trump thanked Priebus for his service.

"I think General Kelly is a brilliant pick", Priebus continued. "He was very friendly and composed and calm all the way up and all the way back". He has had trouble turning some of his campaign promises into legislation.

He was a senior vice president at the Export-Import Bank in Washington when Trump appointed him last week, prompting the resignation of Sean Spicer. "John Kelly is one of our great stars".

He always seemed on the brink of being fired, and after the Republicans failed to repeal Obamacare early Friday, he either resigned or was pushed out, according to various sources who talked to Politico. I'll get to the person who leaked that to you. The Senate will have to vote to confirm whomever he chooses. "The fish stinks from the head down", he said. Then, Deputy Secretary Elaine Duke becomes the acting secretary.
