Reince Priebus: Trump 'wanted to go a different direction'

Reince Priebus: Trump 'wanted to go a different direction'”

Priebus told allies that he had offered his resignation to Trump on Thursday.

Lizza then posted a tweet, writing, "In case there's any ambiguity in his tweet I can confirm that Scaramucci wants the FBI to investigate Reince for leaking".

Trump now faces a choice between swallowing a bill he deeply opposed and refusing to do so - a move that would intensify suspicions about his attitude to Russian Federation and likely bring a humiliating veto override.

He added, "I can't think of a better person than Gen. John Kelly to succeed me and I wish him God's blessings and great success".

"John Kelly is a great American".

Graham, R-South Carolina, also lauded Kelly's accomplishments, saying the general "will bring unparalleled leadership skills to the job". "He has been a true star of my administration".

He also saluted Priebus, the chief of staff he had just pushed out.

After announcing Kelly, Trump tweeted thanks to his outgoing adviser "for his service and dedication to his country".

"General Kelly is a brilliant pick".

Kelly's personable, down-to-earth leadership style made him a favorite among the troops throughout his career, and his time as an enlisted man distinguished him as an unusually relatable officer, one who often voiced his regret that promotions meant more distance between him and his men. He released a statement thanking "the tremendous men and women of DHS".

Priebus stressed that there no hard feelings behind the decision.

Trump also tweeted his thanks to Priebus. The New Yorker magazine published an interview Thursday in which Scaramucci called Priebus, amid an avalanche of vulgarity, a "paranoid schizophrenic".

Trump's administration and his presidential campaign are under investigation by a special prosecutor and several Congressional committees over whether they colluded with Moscow to tilt the 2016 presidential election.

For example, as a spat between Mr Bannon and Mr Kushner spilled out into the open in April, Mr Priebus worked to arrange a détente at Mr Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort, according to a senior White House source.

Well said, Mr. President.

Now Trump has reportedly injected new uncertainty into an already fraught situation. As it turns out, it's Mr Priebus. But Priebus' tenure of 190 days is one of the shortest in history. As secretary, he was a proponent of the president's travel ban and implemented new regulations for laptops on planes in passenger carry-ons - a ban that was recently lifted. "So in the defense, I would say, of both the Congress and early on in the press, we did not have a forward-leaning posture".

Reacting after the announcement, he said he would remain a strong supporter of President Trump's agenda and policies.

The official said Priebus' departure wasn't about any one issue, but a pile-up of sorts.

But while many were expecting that Mr Sessions would resign as Mr Trump continued to criticise his decision to recuse himself from the investigation into Russian Federation, in the last 24 hours it emerged that Mr Priebus had become very vulnerable.

"Look, it's over", Priebus said.

There are turf wars in every White House, with different factions seeking leverage and advantage.

As Secretary of Homeland Security, Kelly has played a key role in the border security of the Trump Administration. Those orders have been stripped down by courts pending a Supreme Court review this fall.
