Homeland security secretary replaces Priebus at White House

Budget Director Mick Mulvaney says the Senate should skip its August recess if necessary

At Bedminster, Trump and Kelly discussed the general's diplomatic experience and the security concerns about which both men remain deeply passionate. Sitting in a SUV with Dan Scavino and Stephen Miller, Priebus found himself sitting in the vehicle alone when Scavino and Miller hopped out of the car. Ditto Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director who spent his first week on the job savaging Priebus (and chief strategist Steve Bannon) to The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza. "I want to talk to the press and the Hill about what my people do, and frankly, shame on us if someone like you writes an inaccurate story".

After frequent conversations with Kelly, Trump recently warmed up to the idea of naming Kelly chief of staff to more effectively manage personnel and offered it to him earlier this week, a senior White House official said.

The lesson Trump learned from these first six months office wasn't that he needs to change.

Kelly, 67, a retired four-star Marine Corps general, is currently secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and will assume the chief of staff post on Monday. In a White House that prizes loyalty above all else, the chief of staff never managed to gain the president's trust or win the respect of his colleagues. Priebus was the guy he accepted as, in his mind, a sop to a Republican establishment fretting over what sort of President he might be.

Into this mix, toss German Chancellor Angela Merkel's economic minister, Brigette Zypries, who now wants "countermeasures" against the United States for its sanctions against Russia because they have the trickle-down possibility of economically hurting the European Union's trade agreements with Russia. "We accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him". So, insurers could have the option charge people more based on their healthhistory.

John McCain (R-Arizona), who actually voted in favor of an open debate on repealing and replacing ObamaCare last week, voted "no" on the new proposal when it hit the floor, just before he left for Arizona to be treated for brain cancer.

In a morning tweet, Trump for the second day in a row urged GOP senators to fall back on the "nuclear" option of switching to a 51-vote majority. While the House has begun a five-week recess, the Senate is scheduled to work another two weeks.

Asked if no other legislative business should be taken up until the Senate acts again on health care, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney on Sunday responded "yes" and suggested the Senate continue working through August if necessary.

As the Scaramucci news spread, Kelly was in the East Room, smiling and taking pictures with guests who had gathered for a Medal of Honor presentation. In short order, Priebus was pushed aside and replaced by Kelly, whose arrival led in turn to Scaramucci's departure.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., said on CBS' "Face the Nation" Sunday that she hopes Kelly can "be effective", and "begin some very serious negotiation with the North and stop this program".

Considering the allegations against Priebus, it's unsurprising that such a strict figure has been drafted to replace him. Lindsey Graham, who has sparred with the president in the past. He has made praising the workforce a focus of many of his public speaking engagements, and often answers critical questions about administration policies by proclaiming his obligation to follow the law. "You can't do that under the current structure". 'Mooch' and the Midwest: "He is every Wall Street stereotype, but the base will love it MORE doesn't know Donald Trump", Lewandowski told Chuck Todd on NBC's "Meet the Press". President Trump has escalated his wars on, well, everybody - friends and foes, loyalists and lobbyists, Democrats and Republicans, Congress and his own executive branch.
