He said, I'm pleased to inform you that I have just named General Secretary John F. Kelly as White House chief of staff. The firing of Reince Pribeus is far more shocking and likely to have greater ramifications within the Trump administration, and the public's confidence in Trump's stability as a leader.

"I'm always going to be a Trump fan", Priebus said.

"We accomplished a lot together", Trump tweeted, "and I am proud of him!"

Kelly, 67, a retired four-star Marine Corps general, is now secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and will assume the chief of staff post on Monday.

The in-fighting in the Trump Administration isn't confined to the Wes Wing staff, it extends into the President's Cabinet as well.

Since taking the job, Scaramucci has feuded publicly with Priebus and with Steve Bannon, a senior adviser to Trump, denouncing both men in a profanity-laced tirade to a reporter.

Kelly, 67, is a retired four star general of the Marine Corps and was tapped to lead the Department of Homeland Security on January 20.

The supporters also said that Preibus had been given "an impossible job of managing a president who chafed at attempts to control his more rash impulses".

"The entire administration loves him [Kelly] and no one is comparable", she said.

General Kelly was nominated and confirmed to serve as the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). He also has accused Priebus of leaking to the press.

He said he didn't want to address or respond to Scaramucci's insults because "it doesn't honour the president".

Hannity asked Priebus to comment on Thursday's New Yorker article which featured a rant from Scaramucci against Priebus, calling him "a f-ing paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac".

Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., said in a statement "Reince Priebus is a good friend".

Priebus' ally from the RNC, Press Secretary Sean Spicer, resigned after Scaramucci was hired.

Reince Priebus's six-month stint in the White House landed in the history books on a rainy Friday afternoon: He became the shortest-serving chief of staff.

PRIEBUS: He knows, I think, intuitively when things need to change.

"It was a privilege", he said, "it was an honor and I look forward to continuing to help". "I think this is good for the President".

"So this is not like a situation where there are a bunch of ill will feelings".
