Scaramucci Will Reportedly Turn Down White House Salary Like President Trump

"As we watch the dust settle on all of this, the big question ends up being one thing - Can this new White House Chief of Staff help President Trump pass his agenda on Capitol Hill?"

"Reince Priebus has left it all out on the field, for our party and our country", the statement said. Priebus previously served as the chairman of the Republican National Committee.

But he reserved some even stronger words for Trump's chief strategist, Steve Bannon, saying, "I'm not Steve Bannon; I'm not trying to suck my own cock". He has achieved so much, and he has done it all with class. After many years in the business, I can safely say that many journalists, including me, have made a decent living off leaks.

Now as Trump's chief of staff, he will will manage a White House mired in chaos and infighting that in seven months has failed to convince a Republican Congress to give the Republican president a single legislative victory beyond the appointment of a Supreme Court justice. His exit appeared inevitable when Trump did not intervene as his new communications director Anthony Scaramucci publicly described Priebus as a "paranoid schizophrenic" in a foul-mouthed tirade that also saw him savage another top Trump aide. In a growing rift between Trump and Priebius, the President's new communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, had criticized Priebius in posts on Twitter this week as well as a profanity-laced interview with New Yorker writer Ryan Lizza.

Mr Priebus' already tense relationship with Mr Scaramucci took a darker turn over the past two days when the communications chief suggested in a late-night tweet that Mr Priebus was one of the "leakers" Mr Trump has railed against.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Retired Marine Gen. John Kelly is a battle-hardened commander who would bring a background of military discipline and order to President Donald Trump's roiling White House as the new chief of staff. General Kelly has been a star, done an incredible job thus far, respected by everybody, a great, great American. That brought Trump and Priebus close, but it was never a natural fit - the mild-mannered, careful former Wisconsin Republican Party leader with the Midwestern accent, once critically described as the "nebbish's nebbish", and the flashy, cavalier NY billionaire. "He has been a true star of my Administration".

In his first public statement on the change, Priebus said, "It has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve this President and our country".

When Trump asked him to join his administration as secretary of Homeland Security, he "panicked for a bit", he told the Aspen Security Conference last week: "All I could think about is, how do I get out of this?"

Kelly was the fifth person to lead the Department of Homeland Security, which includes agencies that protect the president, respond to disasters, enforce immigration laws, protect America's coastlines and secure air travel.

Priebus said he thinks Kelly is a good choice for the job.

Priebus later said he resigned on Thursday, but referring to his departure admitted that he and Trump "talked all the time about this subject". 'I'm not trying to build my own brand off the f***ing strength of the President.

ROBERT COSTA: He thought Priebus, because he had run the Republican National Committee, could be a stabilizing force. He called Priebus, ousted after a tumultuous six months, a "good man".

House Speaker Paul Ryan tweeted his thanks to Priebus, as well as his support for General Kelly.
