Trump Told Associate to Stop Calling John Kelly

White House chief of staff Kelly to resign soon reports say

White House chief of staff John Kelly will leave his post at the end of the year, US President Donald Trump has confirmed.

The announcement follows reporting yesterday that Kelly's on the way out.

Kelly had sought to bring more order and stability to a White House that has often been chaotic under the unpredictable Trump.

There have been mixed reports about Trump's working relationship with Kelly, though his departure has been anticipated. He was not on speaking terms with Trump during his last days, two officials told CNN, and their relationship was no longer seen as tenable. Other previously reported potential contenders include Wayne Berman, a top lobbyist at Blackstone, and David Urban, who served as the head of the Pennsylvania campaign for Trump in 2016. If he's going to be replaced by someone who will just "let Trump be Trump" (to steal a line from an old West Wing episode), why have a Chief of Staff at all?

"I appreciate his service very much", Trump said. Lights are off in Kelly's office this morning, per a senior admin official.

Kelly seemed in many ways a ideal fit to lead Trump's White House. Kelly, a career military officer before becoming Trump's first homeland security secretary, lacked such experience. Trump, however, wants a two-year commitment. Kelly, however, only joined as chief of staff in July previous year. He's outpacing Barack Obama, who took 723 days to get to his third chief and incurred ridicule from Trump in a tweet has aged horribly. But in the last months of his tenure, Kelly saw his status as chief of staff diminish. The retired Marine Corps general has spent 16months in the position.

Three months earlier, he told reporters on Capitol Hill that some undocumented immigrants brought to the country as children were "too lazy" to sign up for a program protecting them from deportation. In recent months, the chief of staff's power has ebbed, with administration policies and decisions being guided more by the president's gut instincts than by Kelly's processes. Along the way, he has drawn a number of detractors who have found him focused more on promoting himself than on tackling the job at hand.
