White House expected to name Nielsen new deputy chief of staff

"I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff", Trump told his more than 34.8 million followers on twitter soon after his return from NY.

Trump made the announcement via Twitter. President Trump called Kelly a "great leader" and "great American".

That experience prepared him well to take charge of the Department of Homeland Security, a sprawling bureaucracy responsible for border protection and internal security. "He has been a true star of my Administration", Trump tweeted.

"And leading up to Priebus" final days as chief of staff, Trump's complaints to other senior staff reached "fever pitch", the official said.

"I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country", Trump said. "I used to think, when I'd go to all of my trips up to Bethesda, Walter Reed, I'll go to the funerals with the secretaries of defense, that I could somehow imagine what it would be like", Kelly said.

Priebus served a scant 189 days as chief of staff, the shortest tenure in decades for someone in that post.

SIEGEL: Let's turn to health - David, let's turn to health care and what happened last night, which was a very dramatic vote cast by Senator John McCain to defeat the so-called skinny repeal bill and to put an end to what has been about seven years of Republican campaigning to repeal Obamacare.

Pakistan's ousted Sharif names his brother as his successor
The opposition is expected to name a candidate to challenge Abassi, a staunch Sharif loyalist and former oil minister. One of the most powerful Prime Ministers in the history of Pakistan was shown the door on Friday.

"Reince is a f--ng paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac" -Anthony Scaramucci to The New Yorker.

In a CNN interview Scaramucci used an old saying - "The fish stinks from the head down" - in describing Priebus. And I think he's right. They weren't authorized to discuss private conversations and spoke on condition of anonymity.

"If a general can't do it I don't know who can", he said.

"I'm here to serve the country", about the chief strategist who makes next to no appearances on television.

Meanwhile, Trump continues to publicly decry his own attorney general, Jeff Sessions, tweeting this week that Sessions is "beleaguered".

"Better not to comment" -Scaramucci to reporters on the continued fall-out from his interview.

Asked when Kelly was offered the chief of staff job, she said, "They've been talking about it for a while".

"I think General Kelly is a brilliant pick", Priebus continued. "How many more big stories do I gotta break before they quit throwing shade at Mike Cernovich?"

"He has achieved so much, and he has done it all with class", Ryan said.

Trump has shown an affinity for generals in his administration.

National security advisers and Federal Bureau of Investigation directors have come and gone too.

Kelly was confirmed with bipartisan support by the Senate, 88-11, on Inauguration Day.

Many instances of Donald Trump humiliating his now sacked Chief of Staff Reince Priebus are appearing in the media. Scaramucci is the latest top aide to be granted a direct line to Trump, and it has become increasingly unclear who actually reports to Priebus. Priebus is being replaced by Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly. Ron Johnson said in a statement. He joined the Marine Corps in 1970, carving out a reputation as a highly respected but often outspoken commander who could roil debate and issue unpopular directives on issues ranging from women in combat to the treatment of detainees at the Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detention center. He has repeatedly been told that Trump is "disappointed" in him.

North Korea year away from developing nuclear missiles that can reach US
A bigger cause for concern is that about 90 per cent of the Russian exports to North Korea are oil and mineral materials. That test prompted strong condemnation from world leaders, including U.S. president Donald Trump.
