More White House drama as Trump replaces Reince Priebus

Priebus latest high-profile departure from Trump admin

But I would add that, you know, from the moment that President Trump took office, Reince Priebus was really the source of nearly constant speculation about how long he would last in this White House that has just really been, you know, driven by these warring power centers. "It's very frustrating. But that said, we have a sacred mission to protect the country and I'm proud of these people, and we'll protect them". I've seen it now for a year and a half on this wild ride with the president that I loved being a part of.

"I think that the political environment is more complicated and more challenging than it is in strictly a command role", Gates said. "I was wrong. You accomplish great things everyday defending our nation and I know your exceptional work will continue", Kelly said in a statement to the employees of the Department of Homeland Security.

"He knows the region well", said Christian Calderón, a professor at Guatemala's San Carlos University.

Kelly has been serving as homeland security secretary under the Trump administration. "Secretary Kelly is a star, and he'll do a good job". "He has been a true star of my Administration".

"I want to congratulate John Kelly, who has done an incredible job of Secretary of Homeland Security", he said.

At the end of a week of convulsions, US President Donald Trump is punting on the appointment of a politically inexperienced US Marine general to magically halt the chaos that has become a hallmark of his administration. "He will begin on Monday morning and a cabinet meeting will follow his swearing in", Sanders said.

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".

Priebus and Scarramucci stair down in the Oval Office. Scaramucci was annoyed, thinking his financial disclosure was leaked to the media.

The president eventually emerged, umbrella in hand, and delivered a brief statement on the runway as driving rain poured. Those orders have been stripped down by courts pending a Supreme Court review this fall.

Priebus takes his turn on the Trump administration hot seat
Using profanities, the 53-year-old remarked that Priebus had attempted to stop him from being appointed to the White House. Tom Cotton R-Ark., said "John Kelly is a great American", before thanking Priebus "for his service to our country".

Typhoon Nesat makes landfall in China, thousands evacuated
Howling winds toppled motor scooters and hit people with flying glass, the Central Emergency Operations Centre said. Pingtung suffered the worst flooding as of Saturday night, with some 200 residents stranded and later rescued.

Trump also tweeted his thanks to Reince Priebus, who had been his chief of staff since Inauguration Day.

The personnel shift came amid growing acrimony inside the White House, which was made public most clearly when new communications director Anthony Scaramucci called a reporter for The New Yorker and gave a series of expletive-ridden criticisms of Priebus, among others. "I think it's healthy and I support him in it".

"Reince Priebus is a good friend".

He added that Scaramucci's comments didn't honour the president. He is a loyalist from the early campaign days but is not afraid to tell the president when he thinks he is making a mistake.

Mr Priebus, who hails from Wisconsin and has deep ties to House of Representatives speaker Paul Ryan, had grown increasingly isolated in the White House as past Republican National Committee colleagues and other allies have left or been pushed out. He also accused Mr Priebus of being behind the flow of damaging leaks about the White House and said he was going to ask the FBI to investigate him. Priebus took the return flight to Washington, his fate sealed in the tweets that were sent by the president just as he stepped off the plane. Kelly, who was reportedly informed of Trump's intention to order the travel ban at the last minute, not only promptly rolled out the ban, but later blamed himself for not doing it more thoughtfully.

The pick was unexpected for many in the Trump campaign who saw Priebus as the embodiment of the Washington Republican establishment Trump had defeated in the primaries, and Trump and Priebus did not always see eye-to eye.

Priebus was just the latest former RNC official to leave the administration, following the departure of White House press secretary Sean Spicer - who resigned in protest over Scaramucci's hire - and the ouster of deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh, a key Priebus ally who exited the administration after just two months on the job.
