There is some speculation as to whether Priebus was fired or whether he resigned to save face (as he claimed he did to the Wall Street Journal), but the point is that the buck stops at Trump—and the voter.. Many Trump supporters (including myself) had little trust for the Republican Chairman who helped fuel the narrative that Trump would be denied the nomination… Either way, Priebus is gone and both Trump and the public are very happy!!!!

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump says Gen. John F. Kelly is his new White House chief of staff.

That means Reince Priebus is out.

Kelly is currently the secretary of Homeland Security and is a retired United States Marine Corps general.

Trump tweeted that Kelly “has been a true star of my administration.”

Priebus traveled with Trump earlier in the day to an appearance in Brentwood, New York. Trump thanked him for his service and “dedication to his country.”

White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was removed from his post suddenly Friday, amid accusations he was leaking internal information to the press.

Reports claim Priebus was asked to resign as a fury of leaks continue threatening to devastate the young Trump administration.

The dismissal follows a New York Times report which claimed that “Mr. Trump has openly told people that he has lost faith in Mr. Priebus.”

“He has said he wants ‘a general’ as chief of staff, and has focused on John F. Kelly, the retired four-star Marine now serving as homeland security secretary,” The Times wrote Thursday. “Many of his advisers, however, consider that a bad idea.”

President Trump confirmed shortly after the removal of Priebus that Kelly would in fact be appointed as the new White House chief of staff.

The latest White House shakeup comes after newly appointed White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci severely lambasted the former Republican National Committee chairman.

In an interview published Thursday, Scaramucci attempted to probe an editor with the New Yorker on whether Priebus was a leaker, and threatened to fire the entire White House communications staff in the process.

“They’ll all be fired by me,” Scaramucci said. “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.”

“Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci said, referring to Priebus’ suspicions surrounding why he wasn’t invited to a dinner with Trump, Scaramucci, Fox host Sean Hannity and Fox executive Bill Shine.1
