John Kelly to Leave White House by Summer's End

John Kelly to Leave White House by Summer's End

Despite several reports, the White House has denied reports the president is looking for a replacement for Kelly.

President Donald Trump has been consulting with some of his advisers on who should be his next White House chief of staff, a source familiar with the situation said on Thursday.

It was believed Kelly's illustrious and disciplined military background could bring such order, but several reports over the previous year have indicated a strained relationship between the president and his chief of staff.

The two top prospects for the job are reportedly Nick Ayers, who is now chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, and Mick Mulvaney, the Office of Management and Budget chief and acting director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. The sources spoke condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss personnel matters. If the denials from the White House are correct and Kelly does end up staying, it certainly doesn't seem like it will be for long.

Trump and Kelly have been at odds for months now, both unhappy with the other's behavior.

There has been tension between Trump and Kelly for months now, with Kelly threatening to quit on multiple occasions. "He said it is absolutely not true and that it is fake news".

Kelly has told confidants he now has no plan to leave and has made no formal preparations to do so, according to one person with knowledge of his thinking.

Trump reportedly went on a "profanity-laced tirade" tirade against Kelly with an ally, only to switch gears the next morning and praise his work. The president has increasingly followed his own counsel and added more like-minded aides to his staff, many of whom have direct access to the Oval Office without going through Kelly.

That list will soon include former Fox News executive Bill Shine, who is expected to join the administration as deputy chief of staff for communications.

When Kelly took over the job from Reince Preibus, leaving his position as Homeland Security chief, some hoped he would help tame Trump and bring order to the White House.
