In a stunning Friday announcement, President Donald Trump announced that he had selected General John Kelly as his new chief of staff, replacing former Republican National Committee (RNC) chief Reince Priebus.
“I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff,” Trump announced on Twitter. “He is a Great American and a Great Leader.”

Kelly earned the respect of the president as the head of his Department of Homeland Security (DHS), as the pair shared a deep respect for the rule of law and order.
“John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security,” Trump added on Twitter. “He has been a true star of my Administration.”
The Trump White House experienced a dramatic 48 hours after White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci denounced Priebus in an expletive-filled conversation with a New Yorker magazine reporter.
“I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country,” Trump wrote. “We accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him!” full story
