Donald Trump Fires his staff chief, Reince Priebus:
US President Donald Trump has dismissed his Chief of Staff, Reince Priebus, and replaced him with General John F. Kelly. Trump announced on Twitter on the late Friday night.
I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. He is a Great American….
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 28, 2017
“Damn paranoid schizophrenic”
Trump also indirectly declared the dismissal of the existing staff chief, Prince Priebus, after just 6 months. “I would like to appreciate Reince Priebus for his services and his devotion to this country,” the President continued. “We have accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him!”
Priebus is noted as a bitter enemy of the new communications officer, Anthony Scaramucci. Scaramucci had described Priebus as a “damn paranoid schizophrenic” in an eye-catching interview and publicly suspected him of passing on information to the press.
Next win for Scaramucci
For Scaramucci is the sacking of Priebus, therefore, an important victory. The White House’s new communications officer is officially not yet in office, but Priebus is already the second person who leaves the White House because of him. Earlier, presser Sean Spicer had already stated his resignation in protest against the appointment of Scaramucci.
Scaramucci had, among other things, prevailed, that he did not, like his predecessors, submit to the staff, but to the President personally – an affront to the authority of Priebus. Previously, the Chief of Staff was counted as counted. Trump has always considered his dismissal in the circle of his other advisors.
The Chief of Staff is considered to be one of the most important employees of the US Presidential Government. His duties include, among other things, the administration of the President’s staff and the deadline. Because of his proximity to the president, the staff chief is often one of his most important advisors.
