Jose Canseco Pitches Trump for Chief of Staff Position

Jose Canseco Pitches Trump for Chief of Staff Position”

President Donald Trump has cancelled this year's White House holiday party with the press, according to a Fox News report. "The President told him we need him in Congress so he can continue the great work he is doing there", White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told McClatchy.

The search to fill the top administrative post in the West Wing comes as Democrats prepare to take control of the House of Representatives in January and begin investigating Trump's businesses and some of his most contentious policies. Kelly, Trump's second chief of staff, after Reince Priebus, had tried to bring more discipline to the chaotic Trump White House and frequently found himself at odds with the president.

Kurtz adds that the "White House made no announcement that it was dropping the press party".

White House counselor Kellyanne Conway suggested on Tuesday that he would be staying in his the role until around January 2 to help ensure "a very peaceful and pragmatic transition" for the next person.

Trump said his five candidates are "really good ones" and "terrific people".

Trump has also bypassed the annual White House Correspondents' Association dinner the past two years.

Earlier this week, Meadows said it "would be an incredible honor" to hold the position.

Meadows had met with several Trump allies in recent days to gauge what the job would entail - and whether he should take it if offered, with discussions about the legal and political challenges that could be involved, according to four people briefed on those exchanges.

The Wall Street Journal reported that Trump told Meadows that he wouldn't get the job and needed him to remain in Congress.
