Reince Priebus Slinked Away in the Rain—
President Donald Trump fired his Chief of Staff Reince Priebus and replaced him with the current head of DHS John Kelly!
This was after the US Senate failed to replace and repeal Obamacare last night.
That was a huge blow to the president’s agenda.
Reince Priebus flew to Long Island today on Air Force One for President Trump’s speech.

President Trump arrived back at Joint Base Andrews this evening after his speech.
There were no signs of Reince Priebus.
Priebus reportedly left the plane early before the president left the plane.
It must have been a long ride back to Washington DC.
Priebus got off the plane and into a car, which exited the motorcade and left the air force base—all while Trump stayed on Air Force One.
