Ivanka Trump Is Reportedly Searching For A Chief Of Staff Replacement—And Here We Go Again

By Dana Levinson

When President Trump first took office, Reince Priebus, the former head of the Republican National Committee, was his chief of staff. General John Kelly was one of the first cabinet officials confirmed by congress to lead the Department of Homeland Security. Many people don't realize that for most administrations, the chief of staff is the organizational mind behind the White House. But in one of many staff shake-ups, Reince Priebus announced his resignation on July 27.

The next day, President Trump announced he was nominating DHS head General John Kelly to be his new chief of staff:

The President now seems to be on the outs with General Kelly. Last Thursday, the Washington Post reported:

White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly told Democratic lawmakers Wednesday that some of the hard-line immigration policies President Trump advocated during the campaign were 'uninformed,' that the United States will never construct a wall along its entire southern border and that Mexico will never pay for it, according to people familiar with the meeting. ... The comments were out of sync with remarks by Trump, who in recent days has reiterated his desire to build a border wall that would be funded by Mexico 'indirectly through NAFTA.'

Once the Kelly's comments became public, rumors began circulating that the feud between the two men was brewing and that Kelly may be following in Priebus' footsteps and resigning soon.
