In response to the replacement, Priebus told CNN in an interview on Friday evening: "The President wanted to go a different direction.A President has a right to hit a reset button". When asked how he felt after departing, Spicer said, "How do I look like I'm feeling?" The President's son-in-law Jared Kushner was named senior adviser and soon thereafter his wife - the President's eldest daughter - Ivanka Trump was as well.

"We didn't even know it", said Congressman Pete King who accompanied Trump and Priebus on an Air Force One trip to and from NY on Friday. "And that we simply don't know", Spradling said.

Trump issued his decision just as he landed aboard Air Force One after a visit to Long Island and hours after Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare failed in the Senate.

"Reince is a good man", Trump told reporters as he left the aircraft. Done an incredible job thus far.

Priebus had been the head of the Republican National Committee during Mr. Trump's ascendancy in the GOP primaries, moving over to help with the campaign for November.

Another early departure from the Trump White House was national security adviser Michael Flynn and Mr Trump ousted Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey early on. We're told this White House is just "competitive". "I thank him for his service and wish him the best of luck going forward", Johnson, also a Wisconsin Republican, wrote in a statement Friday.

The general's son, 1st Lt. Robert Kelly, was leading his platoon while on patrol in Sangin, Afghanistan on November 9, 2010 when he stepped on an explosive. The former chief of staff declined to speak with reporters traveling with the president after returning.

Priebus had been on the trip, but according to the White House Pool report, the auto he was riding in was separated from the President's motorcade, as Mr. Trump headed back to the White House.

It's really entirely impossible to predict... exactly what amendments will be offered or what amendments will succeed. McCain added, "It's time we sat down together and came up with a piece of legislation that addresses this issue".

White House press secretary Sean Spicer resigned last week after Scaramucci was hired.

After removing the tweet, Scaramucci denied that it was a threat to Priebus, writing that the deleted tweet was "was public notice to leakers that all Sr Adm officials are helping to end illegal leaks".

A White House pool report indicated that after touching down in Washington, Priebus exited the plane and entered a suburban with White House advisor Steven Miller and social-media director Dan Scavino Jr. This is true. No one would ever accuse this West Wing of having a working organizational structure.

"Priebus was a political guy as are virtually all of the previous chiefs of staff", he added.

Trump tweeted Friday that retired Marine Corps general Kelly had "done a spectacular job at Homeland Security". He starts his new role Monday.

Priebus said he thinks Kelly is a good choice for the job.

General John Kelly is a lot like Donald Trump. Kelly was a three-star general; his son was on his third combat tour.

He says he resigned in private a day earlier, but he had been resigned for some considerable time. It's barely seven months into the president's term of office and already he is on his second chief of staff, his second national security adviser, his second (really his third) communications director, and his second (though yet to be confirmed) Federal Bureau of Investigation director. "He's an adult. He has the ability to speak truth to power".
