Priebus the latest official to leave Trump administration

Priebus the latest official to leave Trump administration

President Donald Trump announced via Twitter Friday afternoon that he has a new White House Chief of Staff.

- Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 28, 2017I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country.

Priebus and Scaramucci flew together on Air Force One to the NY event, but the White House press pool reported they didn't see the communications director on the plane for the return trip.

Congressman Peter King who accompanied Trump aboard Air Force One to NY and back, told reporters that during the flight, he saw no indication of Priebus' exit.

'He is a Great American. and a Great Leader.

When Trump tapped Kelly to lead Homeland Security he called him "the right person to spearhead the urgent mission of stopping illegal immigration and securing our borders".

Trump is calling Kelly "a true star" of the administration.

The move likely signals a greater focus on law and order issues and will put further strain on relations between Trump and the Republican establishment.

There has been longstanding staff rivalry between veterans who signed up early for Trump's presidential campaign and Republican National Committee officials brought in for the fall race against Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

Reince Priebus said "But I'm feeling good about the fact that he's making a change that makes him comfortable with moving forward. I support him in that", he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room". In a tweet, Trump thanked Priebus for his service. General Kelly has been a star.

The demeaning treatment played a role in Priebus leaving.

Priebus also said his views on Trump haven't changed, adding he's still a fan of the President.

"Reince is a good man", Trump told reporters as he returned from a domestic trip.

"Priebus" final departure was a humiliating coda for what had been a largely demeaning tenure during which he endured regular belittling from rival advisers - and even, at times, the president himself", The Post reports. Priebus had tried unsuccessfully to block Scaramucci's hiring.

He was hired with the goal of bringing more discipline to the White House, a senior White House official said. In a highly unusual arrangement, Trump said at the outset that Priebus and chief strategist Steve Bannon would serve as "equal partners" in implementing his agenda.

Priebus, who told CNN he frequently addressed his job status with Trump, also was blamed by some within the White House for the failure of the Republican health care plan, with some Trump allies believing that Priebus' longtime relationships with Republicans on Capitol Hill should have ensured the bill's passage.

Meanwhile the White House attempted to add clarity on tax reform, one of the policy promises most widely hoped for among investors.

The Obama White House didn't always appreciate it.

Philip Bilden - a private equity executive and former military intelligence officer picked by Trump for secretary of the Navy, withdrew from consideration in February because of government conflict-of-interest rules.
