President Donald Trump announced on Friday a new chief of staff, his secretary of U.S. Homeland Security, John F. Kelly, a retired U.S. Marine Corps general, ousting Reince Priebus.
He added of the retired Marine general: "John Kelly will do a fantastic job".

The veteran of three tours in Iraq has a new mission: to steady the roiling Trump administration - and quiet the friendly fire - as White House chief of staff.
Kelly had a reputation for being similarly frank with Central American leaders about their own shortcomings. He has been a true star of my Administration.
A Marine, Kelly served in the military for almost five decades and served in positions including chief of Southern Command, senior assistant to the secretary of defense and legislative liaison to Congress, and he served tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. "It's very frustrating. But that said, we have a sacred mission to protect the country and I'm proud of these people, and we'll protect them".
But then there were rumblings Mr Trump had structured the White House in a way that seemed to undermine Mr Priebus's authority from day one.
Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said in a statement "Reince Priebus is a good friend. We'll be working on a transition", he said.
Kelly is also well liked by Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner, who sees him as a stable presence with a low key personality.
Both Scaramucci and Priebus travelled to New York's Long Island with Trump on Friday for a speech in which the president highlighted efforts to crack down on the gang MS-13.
White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told the press that talks of Priebus' departure started two weeks ago, and that it had nothing to do with Scaramucci. "His expertise & relationships with Congress benefited the White House in many ways".
Priebus had reportedly also been under pressure from Trump's close advisors and family members, Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, as he failed to rein in a tumultuous White House.
In a written statement, Priebus said it has been one of the greatest honours of his life to serve the President and the country. This story was updated with Trump's remarks to reporters.
The resignation of Priebus came a week after Trump recruited Scaramucci as the communications director and the subsequent resignation of White House Press SecretarySean Spicer. Those orders have been stripped down by courts pending a Supreme Court review this fall.
"Some people would say that's natural during the early days of an administration, he's trying to get his feet".
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".
President Maduro says this should not be seen as a betrayal, but as a "perfection" of the socialist revolution. The opposition is boycotting the vote which it says is a power grab by President Nicolás Maduro.

The retired general has told Democrats that it is Congress' responsibility to change immigration laws if they want to codify DACA. Priebus praised Kelly in an interview shortly after his resignation was announced. "I am always going to be a Trump fan.

Trump tweeted: "I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff". That this did not work well was evident, but to only blame them and Congressional Republicans, as Trump has done, is wrong.

I wonder if Mooch, hoping/expecting that he'd succeed his nemesis Priebus, is angry that now he'll be answering to a general. Asked what he meant by including Priebus, Scaramucci said, "If Reince wants to explain he's not the leaker, he can do that".
