President Trump tweets that John Kelly is new chief of staff

Mr Trump announced the switch on Twitter after a trip to NY, on which he was accompanied by Mr Priebus.

He also accused the chief of staff of leaking information about Scaramucci joining the president, first lady and others at a White House dinner and said Priebus would soon be asked to resign.

"Reince is a good man. John Kelly will do a fantastic job". Assembly Majority Leader Jim Steineke echoed those comments, also tweeting that it was a "bad move by Trump". Priebus, who was replaced by Homeland Security head John Kelly, ended his tumultuous six-month run in the position.

Scaramucci swiftly responded to the news by asking media outlets to leave his family out of coverage of him and the Trump administration.

In a third tweet, he praised the outgoing chief of staff, who had previously worked as the chairman of the Republican National Committee (RNC).

"If you accept the new norm of what it means to be president under President Trump, then I guess this isn't all that surprising", said Lee. General Kelly has been a star, done an incredible job thus far, respected by everybody. Miller and Scavino promptly exited the auto and entered another vehicle that departed with the president's motorcade while the van carrying Priebus pulled off to the side. With a retired general in charge, he hopes to bring in discipline and end the chaos inside the White House.

Reince Priebus told CNN that he resigned on Thursday, July 27, after a productive conversation with Trump.

White House staff were reportedly not told about Mr Priebus' sacking, finding out via Twitter, according to Time.

In a freaky rant to a journalist on Thursday, Mr Scaramucci called Mr Priebus a "paranoid schizophrenic" and threatened to "eliminate everyone" in his communications team.

"I will continue to serve as a strong supporter of the president's agenda and policies", he said.

He also saluted Priebus, the chief of staff he had just pushed out. "I can't think of a better person than Gen John Kelly to succeed me and I wish him God's blessings and great success".

Ryan says Priebus "left it all out on the field" for the party and the country and he could not be more proud to call Priebus a "dear friend".
