As Trump's Approval Ratings Drop, Adviser Says White House 'Is Failing'

As Trump's Approval Ratings Drop, Adviser Says White House 'Is Failing'

President Donald Trump has named General John Kelly, who now heads the Department of Homeland Security, as his next chief of staff.

Donald Trump has fired Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and has named John Kelly as his new White House chief of staff.

THE ongoing Shakespearean drama that is Donald Trump's White House has taken another twist, after the President announced he was replacing his chief of staff Reince Priebus.

"I can't think of a better person than General John Kelly to succeed me and I wish him God's blessings and great success", said Priebus.

Kelly, 67, a retired four-star Marine Corps general, is now secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and will assume the chief of staff post on Monday. Almost all White House staffers, including several Assistants to the President, were unaware of the news before Trump tweeted.

Priebus had been under fresh scrutiny recently when Trump brought on financier Anthony Scaramucci as communications director.

"I would have to say Neil Gorsuch, because [that] actually could change lives for the next 40 years, and he's also set, I think, in motion a change in shift in the federal judiciary that is going to affect our kids for the good", Priebus said. "He wanted to include me in figuring out how and who would be a great successor and a good chief of staff".

Foxconn said in a release the announcement was just the first of several investments the company will be making in the U.S. But Michigan may yet get a "runner-up prize", with Foxconn planning to announce more investments in other states.

He said Kelly will do a "fantastic job".

Before the news was announced, Mr Trump had praised Mr Kelly, a former four star general who served three tours in Iraq, during a speech in New York's Long Island where he was talking about the fight against gang crime.

Scaramucci created a White House spectacle Thursday following his Wednesday night tweet accusing someone of leaking a financial disclosure document that is publicly available.

Trump tweeted out the announcement of Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general, as Priebus' replacement on Friday afternoon. "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", she said. As for when media asked him about the stream of migrants leaving America to seek refugee status in Canada, Kelly said he was "perplexed". "And I'm not real fond of people who try to show off the strength of their egos by using the profanity and vulgar language that Mr. Scaramucci used to describe Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus". We're told this White House is just "competitive".

Priebus' departure is not necessarily a surprise.

"Reince is a f-- paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac", Scaramucci said, the article states. "He intuitively determined that it was time to do something different, and I think he's right".

Both Priebus and Spicer worked together at the Republican National Committee before joining the administration. "We've gotten to know each other very well".
