Kelly, 68, told staffers of Trump's decision on Monday, the date of his first anniversary in the post, the Journal disclosed, citing "White House officials" in its report.

The retired Marine Corps general was Homeland Security secretary before being asked to succeed Reince Priebus, who resigned from his post.

Last month, Mr. Trump told reporters he didn't know how long Kelly would stay on board.

Mulvaney had been pitching himself for the job - even to the president - arguing that he had effectively run two important agencies, would not try to manage the president, was loyal to the Trump family and could be trusted not to leak information to journalists, according to people familiar with the conversations.

Speculation about Kelly's exit hit a fever pitch about a month ago, with Trump openly weighing possible replacements.

The commitment would provide stability for a White House staff that has seen high turnover, unless either Trump or Kelly changes his mind.

Bank of Japan Shift Propels Biggest Bond-Yield Jump in Two Years
Yet, Kuroda also indicated that the BoJ will tolerate 10-year yields deviating as much as 0.2% from zero, compared to 0.1% now. It cited factors such as rising numbers of women and seniors entering the workplace, which has weighed on wages.


President Donald Trump is celebrating his chief of staff's survival for a full year on the job. With Kelly as perhaps the president's closest advisor and enforcer, the administration has been able to achieve numerous coordinated policy priorities ranging from tax reform to foreign summits, from the complex trade concessions to managing various crises at and within our borders.

Kelly has often joked publicly about how working for Trump is the hardest job he's ever had, including those on the battlefield.

Kelly did manage to cut off "meeting crashers", uninvited West Wing aides who used to show up to meetings, Politico reported, but he has not been able to control the president's habit of using his favorite network, Fox News, to dictate his agenda.

The Russia probe has hovered over Trump's term and Kelly's tenure.

"I spend more time with the President than anyone else and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship", Kelly said in a statement at the time.
