Trump ousts Priebus as his chief of staff, appoints Kelly

Trump went on Twitter Friday to say that Priebus is out, and to make way for Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly as the new Chief of Staff. "He is a Great American".

But the failure of efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare, something which never particularly enthused Trump, helped seal the fate of the long embattled Priebus, who had faced constant attack from his new colleague, White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

"I resigned and he accepted it", Priebus said to CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Friday, referring to President Donald Trump.

In his statement announcing his resignation, Priebus said, "It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve this President and our country".

"We accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him!" he tweeted. It's unclear who will take his spot in the Department of Homeland Security.

"General John Kelly is one of the true stars of the administration".

Over the past a few weeks, Trump expressed frustration over leaks coming out of his White House.

Roma snatch late win over Spurs in ill-tempered 'friendly'
Vincent Janssen equalised in stoppage time before Marco Tumminello's last-second sucker-punch condemned Spurs to defeat. Spurs, who finished seven points behind Chelsea, dropped 11 points in six games in October and November previous year .

Priebus' blood was in the water after a highly charged and profanity filled interview with the New Yorker yesterday by Scaramucci.

Priebus' ouster has been expected since Trump appointed Scaramucci last week.

"Anytime either one of us think that we need to make a change or move in a different direction, let's just talk about it and get it done", he said of his relationship with the President.

Speaker of the House Robin Vos, R-Burlington, tweeted that he is disappointed his friend will not be serving as the chief of staff. People went around him.

The motorcade reportedly dumped Priebus immediately after Trump's announcement, according to a pool report by Politico's Josh Gerstein.

"By the usual conventions of American government and Wisconsin politics, there wasn't a good reason for him to be pushed out", said University of Milwaukee Professor Mordecai Lee. Priebus said he declined to answer that question out of respect for the president.

"I'm not Steve Bannon, I'm not trying to suck my own cock", Scaramucci said.
