John Kelly, who served as secretary of homeland security until he was named White House chief of staff last week, and Defense Secretary Jim Mattis were concerned by some of Trump's earliest decisions, reported the Associated Press. "And I have no doubt that he will be an absolutely superb Chief of Staff". "He is a Great American and a Great Leader", Trump announced in a series of tweets late Friday afternoon.

Asked about reports that Trump was considering moving Sessions to the Department of Homeland Security, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders was clear. I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country.

The political assassination of Priebus was a long time coming.

Regarding Priebus as chief of staff, Rios says he represented "establishment" Republicans including so-called "Never Trumpers" who opposed then-candidate Trump and now oppose his populist "drain the swamp" message that targets both Democrats and Republicans. Last year, when a tape emerged of Trump bragging about grabbing women by the genitals, Priebus urged him to drop out of the presidential race.

Trump has publicly belittled Sessions in in recent weeks, calling him "weak" and "beleaguered" in retaliation for Sessions' decision to step aside from the federal investigation into Russia's meddling in the 2016 election and potential ties between Trump campaign aides and Russian officials.
