As Homeland Security secretary, Kelly has taken the lead on some of Trump's most controversial policies, including his executive orders suspending the admission of refugees and temporarily barring visitors from several Muslim-majority nations.

That same day, the feud escalated when The New Yorker revealed Scaramucci had in a phone interview attacked Priebus in harsh and even vile terms, calling him a "paranoid schizophrenic" and using a vulgar term to illustrate Priebus's attempts to block him from a White House post. "He is a Great American".

Mr. Bannon also helped bring Mr. Kelly into the administration during the transition, and was among those who supported his move to chief of staff, an official familiar with his position said.

He added, "They're sending people that have lots of problems and they're bringing those problems with us".

Trump has picked Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly as his new chief of staff.

Since Priebus' fate was tied the failure of congressional Republicans to repeal Obamacare, a source told NBC News, Kelly's ability to rub elbows with lawmakers could be a plus for the White House.

President Trump wasn't the only one to bully the top staffer in the White House.

Back in November, Mr Trump appointed Mr Priebus - who had no governing experience in Washington - as his chief of staff, putting him at the power centre of the Trump administration.

He also said he would "continue to serve as a strong supporter of the president's agenda".

Manu Ginobili finalizing details for return with Spurs
No player in the modern era had embraced the sixth man role like Ginobili did for head coach Gregg Popovich in San Antonio . All 992 of his games played have been with the Spurs , another noble mark on his historic career .

After just six months in the job, White House chief of staff Reince Priebus has exited the building.

Trump made the announcement on Twitter just after landing on Air Force One at Joint Base Andrews outside Washington.

Rep. Peter King of NY sat across from the outgoing chief of staff on Air Force One's return flight to Washington and said Priebus "kept a poker face".

In a third tweet, the President thanked Priebus for his service: "I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country".

Trump hired Anthony Scaramucci over Priebus's objections and Scaramucci reports directly to the president. "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.

Trump tweeted that Kelly "has been a true star of my administration".

Kelly also holds a somber distinction.

Scaramucci has openly accused Priebus of leaking inside information to the press and threatened to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Department of Justice to shore up the leaks.

"I'm not going to get into the weeds on that", Preibus said.
