Trump Replaces Chief Of Staff Priebus With Retired General Kelly

Trump Replaces Chief Of Staff Priebus With Retired General Kelly

"He is a Great American.", Trump said on Twitter. "He is respected by everyone, especially the people at the Department of Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration", Trump said of Kelly in a series of tweets Friday.

"I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country". The Priebus-Scaramucci contretemps fits a pattern for the president: Despite gaining fame for the TV catchphrase "You're fired", he shrinks from the duty in real life, preferring to dispatch intermediaries (he sent his security chief to give Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey his pink slip and an attorney to fire Sally Yates) and passive-aggressively tweeting negative performance reviews, as he has over the past few weeks with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

The replacement of Priebus 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.

Both Scaramucci and Priebus traveled 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. "I used to think, when I'd go to all of my trips up to Bethesda, Walter Reed, I'll go to the funerals with the secretaries of defense, that I could somehow imagine what it would be like", Kelly said.

In his final Pentagon news conference, Kelly spoke about the loss of his son - a topic he didn't often discuss publicly.

Priebus said only that the president "wanted to go in a different direction".

Following his death , his final social post to Instagram has emerged, in which he talks about embracing life as much as possible. Former Diversity dancer and Britain's Got Talent victor Robert Anker has reportedly been killed in a auto crash in Canada .

Priebus praised Kelly in an interview shortly after his resignation was announced.

"I am always going to be a Trump fan. I said no!" he wrote.

As the tweet began to reverberate around Washington, Priebus exited Air Force One into the pouring rain and loaded into a black suburban with senior White House aides Steven Miller and Dan Scavino.

"It's time to drain the swamp, not promote insiders beholden to the Washington establishment who helped create it", she said.
Trump also tweeted his thanks to Priebus.

Ryan added that he was looking forward to working with Kelly as well. As Secretary of Homeland Security, Kelly has played a key role in the border security of the Trump Administration. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. Secretary Kelly is an outstanding leader who has served his country honorably and I know he will do an excellent job at the White House. "Trump's endorsement of police brutality will make it much harder to prevent unlawful police killings and end the culture of impunity", tweeted Jamil Dakwar, director of the ACLU's Human Rights Program. The retired general has told Democrats that it is Congress' responsibility to change immigration laws if they want to codify DACA.

Gen Kelly's deputy, Elaine Duke, will become acting head of the Department of Homeland Security.
