White House Chief of Staff John Kelly will be leaving his post at the end of the year Trump said Saturday.
“John Kelly will be leaving toward the end of the year,” President Trump told the press pool Saturday as he departed the White House for the Army-Navy game in Philadelphia.
Trump added that he will announce a successor within the next week.
The media is acting like John Kelly leaving his post after 17 months of serving as Chief of Staff means there is chaos in the Trump White House.
John Kelly, a retired General, was brought in as Chief of Staff in July of 2017 to bring order to the White House following Reince Priebus’s resignation on July 27th.
Obama’s second Chief of Staff (Rouse) only lasted 104 days, his third (Daley) 379 days, and his fourth (Lew) 359 days, but the media never went into a tailspin over Obama’s revolving door of Chiefs of Staff.
John Kelly is out at year's end at around 520 days as Chief of Staff
The left incorrectly sees this as a controversy.
They forget that Obama's second Chief of Staff (Rouse) only lasted 104 days, his third (Daley) 379 days, and his fourth (Lew) 359 days.
