Reince Priebus loses in power struggle against Anthony Scaramucci

Reince Priebus loses in power struggle against Anthony Scaramucci”

According to CNN, Priebus wanted to leave the White House and had talked to Trump about his exit. I think it's time to hit the reset button.

GEOFF BENNETT, BYLINE: Hey, Kelly.

Appearing on Fox News Channel's Hannity on Friday night, the former White House chief of staff refused to address a question about a purported rivalry with newly appointed White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

BENNETT: Well, he tweeted.

Trump announced Kelly's appointment on Twitter shortly before 5 p.m. and only afterward sent out another message thanking Priebus for his service. He's a great, great American.

John Podesta, who was chief of staff under President Bill Clinton and campaign chairman for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, offered personal praise for Kelly on ABC's "This Week" and predicted the former Marine Corps general would say "no" to Trump when he felt he needed to.

Bannon's influence on President Trump has seriously diminished since the beginning of the administration, when Bannon's sway with Trump earned him the nickname "President Bannon" in the media.

Reince Priebus arrives at Joint Base Andrews from a trip to Ronkonkoma, New York with U.S. President Donald Trump in Clinton, Maryland, U.S., July 28, 2017. "He intuitively determined it was time to do something different, and I think he's right", Priebus said.

Now, after incoming Trump communications director Anthony Scaramucci told a reporter he was prepared to fire everyone in the press shop, White House aides who are more closely associated with the party than with Trump world are anxious about who is next.

The Priebus firing proved, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Trump's attempts to merge his NY and family worlds with the staider environment of official Washington had failed miserably - and that he has clearly sided with those urging him to be more himself over those who had hoped to bend him somewhat to the ways of the nation's capital. And then there was that stunning takedown of him in that expletive-laden interview he gave to The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza. You know, the border is down 78 per cent. The loser of the power struggle is #Chief Of Staff #Reince Priebus, who after a public spat with the former Wall Street financier, will be replaced by retired Gen. John Kelly.

Mr Trump had lost confidence in Mr Priebus, privately questioning his competence after major legislative items failed to pass the US Congress, a Trump confidant said.

Regional experts say that while serving in the Southern Command post, Kelly developed close ties with political, military, and corporate elites in the Northern Triangle, made up of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador. What we know about this president is that he prefers more of a spokes-in-the-wheel structure where everyone has access to him and he's the keeper of all the information. The new chief of staff will start on Monday.

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) on Sunday doubled down on her criticism of President Trump's incoming chief of staff John Kelly as being extremist, ripping his immigration policy enforcement. Indeed, in the six months that Mr Trump has occupied the Oval Office, various figures have seen their fortunes rise and fall, among them advisor Steve Bannon, Jeff Sessions, and Mr Priebus himself. And so that was really the core of his issue with the two of them.

The interview (which Scaramucci seems to believe was supposed to be confidential) was filled with vulgarity and extreme statements.

"These types of organizations, in the modern White House, don't work well, and usually fail pretty spectacularly", Cohen said.
