Priebus has been in a public feud with Anthony Scaramucci, Trump's newly-appointed communications director. This presumably means that Kelly will resign as Homeland Security Secretary, but the White House hasn't confirmed that this is the case.

In the same interview, he also defended the president on Russian Federation, particularly a report that indicated White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner had proposed a secret communication channel with the Kremlin so that discussions before the inauguration could not be detected.

Priebus was on the plane with the Republican president and made no comment.

According to the New York Times, Trump previously said he had lost faith in Priebus and that he had talked about wanting "a general" as chief of staff.

"The president has a right to hit a reset button".

"I resigned privately yesterday", Priebus told The Wall Street Journal Friday, but the Washington Post reported Friday White House officials said Priebus was forced out of the job on Friday.

Priebus tells CNN that he resigned on Thursday.

Trump tweeted. Priebus's ouster came amid smoldering tensions in the White House ignited by another staff shakeup in the communications department.

General John Kelly is a lot like Donald Trump.

Trump has ruffled feathers with off-message tweets, his handling of the Russian Federation investigation, the firing James Comey as FBI director (arguably his most high-profile political miscue) and his public shaming of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, which has turned many congressional Republicans on the president. "He is a Great American and a Great Leader", Trump announced in a series of tweets late Friday afternoon. "Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac", Scaramucci said.

The announcement comes on the heels of a tumultuous week in the White House, which has been dogged by staff changeups and inner turmoil indicating instability within the Trump administration.

"It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve this President and our country. I was wrong. You accomplish great things every day defending our nation and I know your exceptional work will continue", he continued.

The president thanked Mr Priebus for his "service and dedication to his country".

But Priebus allies felt he was an important link to establishment Republicans in Washington as the capital attempted to adjust to the anti-establishment style of the president. He has served the president and the American people capably and passionately. "He has achieved so much, and he has done it all with class".

"I think he has many opportunities before him", Kerkman added.
