President Trump names Gen. John Kelly as new chief of staff

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-Calif.) took to her Twitter account Friday to attack President Donald Trump's new chief of staff, Gen. John Kelly, as an "extremist".

After watch Reince Priebus grovel after he was sacked, it's clear that the Republican Party isn't capable of ever taking a stand against Trump.

Priebus and Scaramucci flew together on Air Force One to the NY event, but the White House press pool reported they didn't see the communications director on the plane for the return trip.

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".

Kelly is "a Great American and a Great Leader". This presumably means that Kelly will resign as Homeland Security Secretary, but the White House hasn't confirmed that this is the case.

Aside from being in lockstep with Trump on immigration matters, he has also sided with the president on sensitive issues, such as leaks, which have riled the administration on multiple occasion.

Here is a guy from Kenosha, Wisconsin who revitalized the Republican National Committee and became White House chief of staff. "Reince is doing a fantastic job at the White House, and I believe he has the president's confidence". "I can't think of a better person than General John Kelly to succeed me and I wish him God's blessings and great success". Trump said in a tweet.

Ryan offered his congratulations to Kelly and said he looks forward to working with him.

Be skeptical: Will 99% of National Football League players really develop CTE?
Although the study revealed a high proportion of the players had CTE , the authors point out several limitations of the study. A major issue is the fact that CTE can only be diagnosed after death and the brain is thoroughly examined.

The demeaning treatment played a role in Priebus leaving. Kelly, like other retired generals, impressed the president-elect, enough so that soon he'll leave his post atop the Department of Homeland Security to replace Priebus in the West Wing.

"Reince is a good man", Trump told reporters as he returned from a domestic trip. Those questions sharply escalated this week with the arrival of Scaramucci, the hard-charging communications director who was hired over Priebus' objections.

Both Scaramucci and Priebus traveled to New York's Long Island with Trump on Friday for a speech in which the president highlighted efforts to crack down on the gang MS-13. "I am honored to be asked to serve as the chief of staff to the president of the United States", the now-outgoing Homeland Security chief said in a statement. For example, as a spat between Bannon and Kushner spilled out into the open in April, Priebus worked to arrange a détente at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort, according to a senior White House official familiar with the internal strife.

Kelly told Meet The Press earlier this year intelligence leaks were "darn close to treason". "As for John Kelly, I know he's going to be great".

You've heard the old saw - don't do more than one of changing house, job or partner at the same time.

Michael Dubke - Founder of Crossroads Media, resigned as White House Communications director in May.

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.
