President Trump just tweeted that he will be replacing his Chief of Staff Reince Preibus with Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly.
“I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. He is a Great American…and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration.”
Priebus had been in the crosshairs of President Trump all week, ever since newly appointed Anthony Scaramucci has gone on the record accusing the former Chief of Staff of not doing enough to stop leaks coming out of the White House.
Officials estimate that in that in the first 100 days of Trump’s presidency, over 125 tidbits have been leaked to reporters.
