REPORT: POTUS Wants a ‘General’ to Replace Chief of Staff Reince Priebus
It’s no secret President Trump has a deep admiration for the military. A new report claims President Trump is looking to replace Chief of Staff Reince Priebus with someone from the armed forces. The President prefers a General to assume the top administration post.
The Hill reports:
The president, the Times reported on Thursday, has so far focused on Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly as a potential replacement, though advisers believe that would be a bad move.
Trump has reportedly said that he no longer has faith in Priebus, a former Republican National Committee chairman who was tapped for chief of staff shortly after Trump was elected.
Priebus has lost key allies in the White House over the past week, most notably former press secretary Sean Spicer, who resigned immediately after Trump appointed Anthony Scaramucci as his new communications director.
Scaramucci has carried out a public feud with Priebus since entering the White House. That feud accelerated on Thursday, when The New Yorkers’ Ryan Lizza published an interview with Scaramucci, in which the communications director delivered a profanity-laced tirade against Priebus and accused him of leaking information to the press.
Roger Stone, former Trump campaign manager and Infowars host, was the first to reveal President Trump is considering Gen. John Kelly and current DHS Chief to replace Priebus.
