Homeland Security Chief Kelly Replacing Priebus as WH Chief of Staff

Homeland Security Chief Kelly Replacing Priebus as WH Chief of Staff

He is a Great American. He was selected by Trump to head up the Department of Homeland Security in December 2016, during the presidential transition period, and he entered the office on January 20, 2017. meaning his tenure there lasted just barely longer than six months.

Announcing the switch via Twitter, Trump called retired Marine Corps general Kelly a "great American".

President Trump tweeted his thanks to Priebus for his service and dedication to the country.

That left Priebus with the blame for numerous administration's legislative stumbles, including during the arduous attempts at passing a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare - which Priebus had advised Trump to make his first legislative priority, promising him swift victory.

The move comes after a tumultuous week in the White House in which the new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, had openly feuded with Priebus.

Vice President Mike Pence tweeted his congratulations to Kelly, "Congratulations to my friend General/Secretary John Kelly for being named @WhiteHouse Chief of Staff". "Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac", Scaramucci said.

Trump told The Wall Street Journal in an interview Tuesday that no staff shake-up was imminent. He wrote: "John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security". The White House did not respond to requests for an organizational chart.

Barclays sets aside £700m more for PPI claims
Barclays declared a dividend of 1p per share and reaffirmed its commitment to paying a dividend of 3p per share for the full year. This means the restructuring of the bank is now complete, with its capital ratio within the end-state target range.

Trump issued his decision just as he landed aboard Air Force One after a visit to Long Island.

Priebus, the former chairman of the Republican National Committee, represents the establishment Republican wing brought on in efforts to provide Washington know-how to a president with no experience holding public office.

In another tweet on Friday, Trump expressed his appreciation for Priebus, who became chief of staff at the beginning of the administration. I'll get to the person who leaked that to you.

Priebus did not respond to repeated requests for comment.

At a press briefing Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to say Priebus had Trump's confidence. Trump quickly added that Priebus has "done a great job". The issue, he said, was that he believed Priebus had been anxious about the dinner because he hadn't been invited. He leveled those charges on CNN moments after speaking with Trump.

"They'll all be fired by me", he said.
