    Trump says John Kelly will be leaving at the end of the year

    https://www.foxnews.com/politics/tru...kelly-to-leave

    President Trump on Saturday said that White House Chief of Staff John Kelly will leave his position at the end of the year -- after swirling rumors that Kelly's 17 month-long tenure in the Trump administration was nearing its end.

    Trump spoke to reporters outside the White House, called Kelly a "great guy" and said his replacement will be announced in the next few days.

    "John Kelly will be leaving at the end of the year, we will be announcing who will be taking John's place, it might be on an interim basis, I'll be announcing that over the next day or two," he said.

    "I appreciate his service very much," he added.

    Kelly, who previously served as Department of Homeland Security secretary, was widely reported to have been considering leaving his post. Trump had previously said Kelly would stay until 2020. The announcement comes amid a wider shakeup of staff by President Trump. On Friday, he announced that he had picked William Barr for attorney general and Heather Nauert for U.N. ambassador.

    Earlier Saturday, Trump named Army Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley to succeed Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford.

    Kelly, 68 moved over to the White House in July 2017 to replace former Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus as chief of staff.

    The retired four-star Marine Corps general has joked publicly that working for Trump is the hardest job he’s ever had, including those on the battlefield.

    Kelly has brought order to a chaotic White House, which has seen a historically fast turnover in multiple high-profile jobs—like White House communications director, national security adviser, and more. Kelly’s role, though, has lessened in recent months as the president has instead followed his own counsel, and added like-minded aides to his staff.

    Over the summer, the president said that he and Kelly were “getting along very well,” and called his chief of staff “a wonderful man,” amid reports and rumors that Kelly’s White House departure was imminent.

    The president, at the time, said that he didn’t know whether Kelly would leave, but said “I like John a lot. I like him and I respect him.”

    But after the midterm elections in November, Trump said “let’s see what happens,” about Kelly’s future at the White House, during an interview on “Fox News Sunday.”

    Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, Nick Ayers, has reportedly been considered as a possible replacement for Kelly.

    Trump will now be hiring his own third Chief of Staff. Not quite two years in office.
