John Kelly out as Trump's chief of staff

White House chief of staff expected to resign soon reports

Kelly is reportedly being honored at a special dinner this week meant to thank him and other departing staff - although CNN says that he and President Trump are no longer on speaking terms.

President Trump's Chief of Staff, John Kelly, is ready to resign from the White House, CNN reported. Some lower-level White House staffers believed Kelly had lied to them about when he knew of the allegations and when he made clear to Porter that he'd have to leave.

The mole added: 'Their relationship has deteriorated so much in the last couple weeks, where John Kelly's job security has essentially been seen as permanently in danger'. Meanwhile, Trump ducked reporters' questions Friday amid rumors of a West Wing staff shakeup.

She says the two men no longer speak, and the situation "is no longer tenable".

The retired four-star Marine Corps general has joked publicly that working for Trump is the hardest job he's ever had, including those on the battlefield. Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff, Nick Ayers, is a possible contender, the source said.

"I'm going to be announcing at the Army-Navy game", Trump said.

Most of the other witnesses interviewed were connected to Trump's campaign, but Kelly didn't join the administration until after the president was sworn in in January 2017.

Reports of Kelly's impending departure have been circulating for months.

Trump also said that State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert was his pick to replace Nikki Haley as the next US ambassador to the United Nations.
