Priebus says Trump sought a different direction

Trump sacks Reince Priebus as chief of staff and gives John Kelly the job

President Donald Trump has replaced Reince Priebus as his chief of staff. Trump announced Friday afternoon on Twitter that he has named Secretary of Homeland Security, General John F. Kelly, to the post.

However, by early Friday evening, Priebus was out and Trump tapped Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly for the job. "He's a great American".

"By putting Gen. John Kelly in charge, Pres Trump is militarizing the White House and putting our executive branch in the hands of an extremist", the California congresswoman tweeted. "He has been a true star of my Adminstration".

"Reince Priebus - if you want to leak something - he'll be asked to resign very shortly", Scaramucci told reporter Ryan Lizza, according to The New Yorker article. Buckley said his hope is that under General John Kelly's guidance, the White House can do just that. He also accused Mr Priebus of being behind the flow of damaging leaks about the White House and said he was going to ask the FBI to investigate him. "I'm always going to be a Trump fan", Mr Priebus added. "We accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him!"

"And leading up to Priebus" final days as chief of staff, Trump's complaints to other senior staff reached "fever pitch", the official said. "The President has a right to hit a reset button".

New York Rep. Peter King, who traveled with Priebus and Trump to Long Island, said there was no hint of the impending shake-up during the flight, recalling Priebus' "poker face" aboard Air Force One. A traditional chief of staff is really a gatekeeper who determines who is and isn't allowed to get on the president's calendar, who strategizes about how to push the president's agenda. Priebus made the trip back and was seen getting out of Air Force One and joined the motorcade back to the White House, even though he had been replaced.

Embattled US President Donald Trump is facing a revolt by his own Republican Party over growing concerns about his ability to govern the country six months after taking officeĜŒ amid a White House torn apart by vicious infighting.

"I have been fortunate to have served my country for more than 45 years - first as a Marine and then as the secretary of the Department of Homeland Security", Kelly said in a statement. In an 88-11 vote, the Senate confirmed Mr Kelly as Homeland Security Secretary in January, putting him in charge of the administration's policies on issues including immigration, cyber-security, countering domestic terrorism and aviation security.

"I'm doing great", Priebus said. Priebus has said that he notified the president of his resignation on Thursday, the day after the dinner.
