Trump aide John Kelly to leave White House job

Ayers is considered one of the best political strategists in Mr. Trump's circle, and advocates say he could provide crucial help to the White House, as previous chiefs of staff have, in meshing with and reinforcing the re-election campaign messaging, strategy, presidential travel and fundraising.

John Kelly is expected to resign as US President Donald Trump's chief of staff in the coming days, CNN reported today, citing unnamed sources.

Still, both are said to be ready for Kelly to move on.

However its important to note the president had nothing but praise for his chief of staff, during a private White House event held Friday night, and that none of the rumors have been confirmed.

Kelly has had a tougher relationship with Trump than his predecessor did and instituted more restrictions around who could reach the president.

President Reportedly Will Name Milley As Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman
Kelly had sought to bring more order and stability to a White House that has often been chaotic under the unpredictable Trump. According to Axios , Kelly will be replaced by Nick Ayers , who now works as chief of staff for Vice President Mike Pence .

Trump did not immediately name Kelly's replacement but said he planned to "in the next day or so". Kelly, who had hired Porter, initially defended him as "a man of true integrity and honor".

Ayers, 36, is considered more politically attuned than Kelly, a retired general who is 68.

A source told Reuters last month that Trump was considering a replacement for Kelly. Kelly's highly criticized handling of the Porter controversy was an inflection point in his tenure, and some of his internal relationships became strained in the months that followed the former staff secretary's ouster. Trump had previously said Kelly would stay until 2020.

Both the attorney general and United Nations ambassador positions require Senate confirmation.

This story is breaking and being updated. Investigators reportedly wanted to know about reports that Trump had attempted to fire the special prosecutor.
