Trump replaces Chief of Staff Priebus, appoints John Kelly

Ellis Copeland | 29 July, 2017, 02:27

The following Friday, in a tweet that took everybody aback, Trump apparently replaced Priebus with Homeland Security Secretary John F. Kelly.

After all the build up that White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus might be on his way out, it finally was announced Friday evening, but Priebus apparently resigned quietly Thursday. He is a Great American and a Great Leader.

I don't doubt that Kelly is a great American and a great leader.

At the time Trump picked him for Homeland Security, he was the third general tapped for a high-level job in the new administration. "He has been a true star of my Administration". "Thanks to Reince Priebus for his service to our country". "I'm always going to be a Trump fan", Priebus said.

Rather than return to the Republican National Committee, Priebus - a political operative and attorney - is expected to look for a corporate job or possibly write a book about his experience in the center of the Trump storm.

The fact that Priebus is the one who is out certainly lends credence to the idea that the NY contingent, which believes in letting Trump be Trump, is ascendant in the White House.

I wonder whether Gen. Kelly knows what he's in for.

On Friday, as Trump traveled to NY, he took both Scaramucci and Priebus on Air Force One with him.

He was the commander of the United States Southern Command from November 19, 2012, to January 16, 2016.

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) warned, "By putting Gen John Kelly in charge, Pres Trump is militarizing the White House & putting our executive branch in the hands of an extremist".

White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon is expected to stay, at least for now, sources tell CNN's Sara Murray and Jeff Zeleny.

El secretario general de la Casa Blanca Reince Priebus habla con algunas personas en el Salón Este de la residencia presidencial, el 26 de julio de 2017.

"Reince Priebus has left it all out on the field, for our party and our country".

Vice President Mike Pence tweeted his congratulations to Kelly, "Congratulations to my friend General/Secretary John Kelly for being named @WhiteHouse Chief of Staff".

Earlier this week, Scaramucci even seemed to accuse Priebus of leaking material against him, reinforcing the palace intrigue involving the two men inside the Trump orbit.

The move comes just a week after Sean Spicer, a Priebus ally, resigned as press secretary the same day Trump brought on Anthony Scaramucci as communications director. I could not be more proud to call Reince a dear friend.

As Secretary of Homeland Security, Kelly has played a key role in the border security of the Trump administration.
