It is confirmed, President Donald Trump’s chief of staff John Kelly to leave White House job.
The news come amid the circulation of unconfirmed issue that suggest Mr Kelly’s relationship with Mr Trump has deteriorated.
President Trump has announced that his chief of staff John Kelly will leave his job by the end of the year.
There have been persistent reports for several days that Gen Kelly was under pressure to go.
Some reports said that the retired Marine Corps general’s relationship with Mr Trump had deteriorated.
United States leader described Kelly as a “great guy” and said a replacement would be named “over the next day or two”.
“He’s been with me almost two years now, between two positions,” Pres. Trump said. “I appreciate his service very much.”
It can be recalled that John Kelly came into the job promising to bring military discipline to an administration riddled with leaks and palace intrigue.
He can claim some success – but the leaks never completely disappeared and, by the end, the chief of staff was as deep into the back-stabbing and personnel drama as anyone.
A White House job is never easy, but this administration has chewed through senior staff at a record pace. Donald Trump is on his third national security adviser, fifth communications director and soon to be third chief of staff.
