President Donald Trump replaced his beleaguered White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus, after only six months on the job on Friday, installing retired General John Kelly in his place in a major shake-up of his top team. Priebus' already tense relationship with Anthony Scaramucci took a darker turn over the past 24 hours when the communications chief suggested in a late-night tweet that Priebus was one of the "leakers" that President Donald Trump has railed against.

As Homeland Security secretary, Kelly has taken the lead on some of Trump's most controversial policies, including his executive orders suspending the admission of refugees and temporarily barring visitors from several Muslim-majority nations.

White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon is expected to stay, at least for now, sources tell CNN's Sara Murray and Jeff Zeleny. That left Priebus with the blame for numerous administration's legislative stumbles, including the arduous attempts at passing a bill to repeal and replace Obamacare - which Priebus had advised Trump to make his first legislative priority, promising him swift victory.

"The president has a right to hit a reset button".

Opponents of President Barack Obama's healthcare law who wanted to get rid of the penalty people were assessed for not h. John McCain cast the deciding vote to sink his fellow Republicans' so-called "skinny repeal" of the Affordable Care Act.

Priebus is just the latest former RNC official to leave the administration, following the departure of White House press secretary Sean Spicer - who resigned in protest over Scaramucci's hire - and the ouster of deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh, a key Priebus ally who exited the administration after just two months on the job.

Priebus told allies that he had offered his resignation to Trump on Thursday. Trump thanked him for his service and "dedication to his country".

Trump's announcement on Twitter said, "I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff".

"Reince is a good man. John Kelly will do a fantastic job". "General Kelly has been a star, done an incredible job thus far, respected by everybody". "He is a Great American. and a Great Leader".

"Reince Priebus is a good friend".

In a third tweet, the president thanked the outgoing chief of staff.

Priebus had worked against Scaramucci joining the administration when the NY hedge fund manager was first considered for a post and while the two attempted to put on a show of unity in Scaramucci's first days at the White House, it quickly became clear the two men would continue to be at odds with each other.

Priebus did not respond to reporters' shouted questions though he later released a statement saying it was "one of the greatest honors of my life" to serve as chief of staff. Asked if Trump had confidence in his chief of staff, spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders did not answer directly, saying: "I think I've addressed this question when it comes to staffing and personnel many times, that if the president doesn't, then he'll make that decision". "We'll be working on a transition here for a couple weeks together with General Kelly starting on Monday morning".

The first face-to-face meeting between Trump and Putin, in Hamburg, Germany, earlier this month, failed to yield a breakthrough. Trump has denied any collusion between his associates and Moscow and termed the Russian investigation "a witch hunt".

The pick was unexpected for many in the Trump campaign who saw Priebus as the embodiment of the Washington Republican establishment Trump had defeated in the primaries, and Trump and Priebus did not always see eye-to eye. Ron Johnson said in a statement. "He has achieved so much, and he has done it all with class". "I think General (John) Kelly is a brilliant pick", Priebus said. "We're going to continue working with the party and doing what we came here to do", she said.
