Trump tweeted Friday evening that Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly would take over as chief of staff.
Kelly will take the desk of Reince Priebus, a Republican operative who was sceptical of Trump's electoral prospects previous year and ultimately came to be viewed by the President as weak and ineffective.
White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon may also be falling out of Trump's graces, as Scaramucci openly criticized him of trying to make a name for himself and diverting from the president's agenda. He quit after Trump tapped NY financier Anthony Scaramucci to serve as White House communications director.
"I resigned, and he accepted it", Priebus said, adding that he had tendered his resignation on Thursday after discussing it with the president for "a few days".
He's not even orchestrating the presidency in a way that seems, I don't know, it doesn't even seem planned.
"People are counting him out after health care", Kellyanne Conway, a White House counselor, said on Fox News.
"Trump sets the tone and Trump sets the structure", said another.
After being appointed by the president to a position at the Export-Import Bank, Scaramucci was able to get Trump's ear and reportedly hinted that Priebus might be the White House leaker who revealed that Donald Trump Jr. and Jared Kushner met with Russians linked to the Kremlin in Trump Tower in 2016. Trump's first national security adviser, Michael Flynn, a retired Army lieutenant general, was forced from his post less than a month into the administration, a result of misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his interactions with Russians. "He has been a true star of my Administration". "Ultimately, the problem isn't with the chief of staff, the problem is with the president - he does not have a disciplined style".
Priebus refused to even mention Scaramucci, only to praise his former boss, President Donald Trump, as "decent" and 'incredibly hard-working'.
Despite being unceremoniously ousted, Priebus insisted that he was 'going to be on Team Trump all the time'. I'm stunned by his willingness to lie, and his inability to let go of any slight.
Brooks also said he would have fired Scaramucci over the magazine interview.
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., is a friend of Priebus' and released a statement following Trump's announcement. "He has achieved so much, and he has done it all with class".
The national security adviser. Instead, Trump turned to Kelly, reflecting his affinity for generals. "I think it's healthy", he said. So, below I ranked all five - from the least bad week to the most bad week. Senate Republicans forced the president to back off his threats by warning that they would block any effort to replace Sessions, either during their recess or through the confirmation process.
According to the outlet, Deidre reportedly texted Anthony the news that their son had been born on Monday, writing, "Congratulations, I'll pray for our child".
