• White House shake-up

    From CNN Breaking News@VERT to no-reply@siteservices.cnn.com on Fri Jul 28 14:27:36 2017
    President Donald Trump has selected Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly[1] as his new White House chief of staff, replacing Reince Priebus.

    "I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. He is a Great American... and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration," Trump tweeted.

    Priebus resigned privately Thursday, CNN has learned.

    The move was announced just after Air Force One landed at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington Friday.

    "Reince is a good man. John Kelly will do a fantastic job," Trump told reporters. "General Kelly has been a star, done an incredible job thus far, respected by everybody. He's a great great American."

    The move followed months of on-again, off-again speculation that Priebus would soon be ousted. He has consistently drawn heavy criticism for failing to stem the flow of leaks and has struggled to impose a sense of order in a chaotic White House beset by controversies.
