Trump says John Kelly to be new WH chief of staff

Kelly even defended efforts by top White House advisor Jared Kushner, Trump's son-in-law, to create secret back-channel communications with Russian Federation as a "good thing". Scaramucci called Priebus a "f***ing paranoid schizophrenic" in a conversation with a reporter from the New Yorker and said Priebus would be forced to resign. "He is a Great American". Trump had grown leery of such forums after a contentious exchange he had with Fox News moderator Megyn Kelly during a debate on August 6, 2015.

Trump's comments were met with laughter from his law enforcement audience, but quickly came under broad criticism for their apparent endorsement of police brutality."Law enforcement officers are trained to treat all individuals, whether they are a complainant, suspect, or defendant, with dignity and respect", said a statement from the International Association of Chiefs of Police. Also attending was Steve Bannon, Trump's chief strategist. "I can't think of a better person than General John Kelly to succeed me and I wish him God's blessings and great success". He was confirmed as Secretary of Homeland Security by the Senate by a vote of 88 to 11 on Trump's first day in office. I will continue to serve as a strong supporter of the President's agenda and policies. The ouster of Spicer and Priebus, especially in such a distasteful manner, might give even generally supportive Republicans in Congress and elsewhere pause.

Several administration positions that were usually managed by the chief of staff now reported directly to Mr Trump.

For one thing, Priebus was among the advisers who had to persuade Trump not to drop out of the presidential debates. This White House will remain stuck in neutral unless Kelly can convince Trump to settle down and let him navigate a steadier ship.

Chief of staff Reince Priebus was sacked after being made the subject of a foul-mouthed tirade by the newly appointed White House communications chief Anthony Scaramucci.

In a separate tweet, Trump said he thanked Priebus "for his service and dedication to his country".

Kelly has also pushed for support for Trump's signature campaign pledge to build a wall along the southern border, though he acknowledged at his confirmation hearing that "a physical barrier in and of itself will not do the job". John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. In an interview with conservative TV channel Fox News, she talked about him having somewhat of a hard time and said: "Somebody is trying to get in his way and scare him off". Trump had focused on him in recent days, telling those close to him that he believed military discipline was what his administration needed.
