Homeland security secretary replaces Priebus at White House

Homeland security secretary replaces Priebus at White House”

Scaramucci was appointed the new White House Communication Director on July 21.

Scaramucci reportedly stayed in NY and did not make the return trip on Air Force One.

In a profanity-laced interview Wednesday with the New Yorker's Ryan Lizza, Scaramucci warned: "Reince Priebus-if you want to leak something-he'll be asked to resign very shortly".

But the man chosen by Trump to lead his sniping administration holds a more somber distinction.

Trump announced Friday that he named General John Kelly as his new Chief of Staff.

Trump has been outspoken about his desire to rid himself of the leaking that has plagued his administration. Priebus is being replaced by Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.

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. "I used to think, when I'd go to all of my trips up to Bethesda, Walter Reed, I'll go to the funerals with the secretaries of defense, that I could somehow imagine what it would be like", Kelly said.

"The President thanks him and his family for his great service to the country, and he will always be a member of the Trump Team".

Scaramucci, a Wall Street financier, said Thursday in a television interview that he has a "very good idea who the senior leakers are", adding that he had talked to Attorney General Jeff Sessions and to his "buddies" in the Federal Bureau of Investigation about the matter.

Before accepting the position, Scaramucci served as the vice president and chief strategy officer at the Export-Import Bank, a position he held since June 19. Trump also tweeted his thanks to Priebus.

The past 24 hours provided the clearest evidence yet that Scaramucci and Trump, both brash New Yorkers, are cut from the same cloth.

Now, after Trump communication director Anthony Scaramucci told a reporter he was prepared to fire everyone in the press shop, White House aides who are more closely associated with the party than with Trump world are anxious about who is next.

Former chiefs of staff I talked with were unanimous, and vocal, in saying that was a big mistake.

Scaramucci and long suffering and now ex-Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

The job of White House chief of staff is often said to be the most hard position in Washington. "He's a great American".

The problems hit the tipping point when Trump brought on Scaramucci as communications director despite having no communications experience.

"I can't think of anyone better than a four-star general, John Kelly", Priebus said of his replacement.

PRIEBUS: He knows, I think, intuitively when things need to change.

Brooks said he rarely agreed with Priebus but he was an "honorable gentleman" who Scaramucci could learn from.

Trump made the comment to reporters after he tweeted the news that Priebus' successor as chief of staff is the secretary of homeland security, John Kelly.

"What I find to be awesome is how narratives are set and a lot of it's not true and facts get placed into stories that then get repeated in a different setting". John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security.

"If he is going to be that divisive I'm not sure if he is going to be that useful to the president", Gingrich said.
