Priebus latest high-profile departure from Trump admin

But in Trump's White House, a long list of top advisers bypasses the middle man. Scaramucci, social media director Dan Scavino and counselor Kellyanne Conway all report directly to Trump, as do the president's daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, both senior advisers.

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

In an interview this week with Charles Benson it was Priebus who said he showed the location to the president back in the spring.

Priebus and Spicer were supposed to serve as bridges to the Republican Party and the US Congress, for a president who came to town not just as a Washington outsider, but nominally at least, as a Republican candidate who railed against the GOP constantly. "Everyone's seen the writing on the wall. And when you do that, you're probably going to see more turnover", Kaufmann said.

There are at least two dozens RNC staffers in the executive office of the president, working in communications, research and scheduling.

"Team Trump is ready for service".

Mr Priebus' 189-day tenure was the shortest in modern history for a White House chief of staff.

National security adviser Michael Flynn resigned after just 23 days in the job, over contacts he had with Russian Federation before Mr Trump took office. Trump has previously lost a deputy chief of staff, national security adviser, communications director and press secretary. "He is a Great American.", Trump said on Twitter. The entire administration loves him and no one is comparable.

The embattled former chief of staff had faced pressure since being named as a possible leaker by Mr Trump's newly appointed director of communication.

National security advisers and Federal Bureau of Investigation directors have come and gone too. Priebus had fought the hiring. Scaramucci was reportedly angling for the chief of staff position before Mr. Trump took office, but Priebus was named instead.

The blunt-talking Kelly is close to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, also a retired Marine general.

Publicly, everyone made the right noises, Trump praising Priebus' six months of service, Priebus welcoming Kelly to his job he was sacked from, and Trump calling Kelly a "true star" of his administration who had don a great job as Homeland Security secretary by staunching illegal immigration.

Here is a look at some members of US President Donald Trump's cabinet and inner circle and the latest drama surrounding his administration. "Incredible. One of our real stars. John Kelly is one of our great stars". "And you know, the president was great. Under past administrations, the border didn't go down - it went up".

Mr Priebus, the former Republican National Committee chief, had been a frequent target of rumours about his job security amid infighting and confusion within the White House and a long whispering campaign by Trump allies. She said it had nothing to do with Scaramucci.

He added that he agreed the White House might well benefit from "a reset", saying: "I'm always going to be a Trump fan". He is a loyalist from the early campaign days but is not afraid to tell the president when he thinks he is making a mistake.

"I'm doing great", Priebus said. Vos said he feel the choice to resign is a good move for Priebus personally.

"All I would say is, as you know, Reince is a very close friend of mine", House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wisconsin, told reporters at a news conference on Thursday. In a highly unusual arrangement, he said Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon would serve as "equal partners" in implementing his agenda. "And if they think they need you, then you've got to do it, '" Kelly recounted.

"He has achieved so much, and he has done it all with class. But I understand why Reince said this is just not something I want to be part of".

ROBERT COSTA: And everyone was thinking maybe Attorney General Sessions would be the person to go at the end of this week, after all of his struggles with President Trump, but it was Priebus. "The word was "weak" - "weak, ' 'weak.' 'Can't get it done'".

Shortly before the president deplaned, Priebus' black SUV pulled away, leaving the rest of the motorcade, including the president's vehicle, in the distance.

Katie Glueck, Lesley Clark and Vera Bergengruen contributed reporting.
