Donald Trump has put an abrupt end to the speculation about how long Reince Priebus will last as White House chief of staff:

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….

…and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration

Now Anthony Scaramucci is going to have to start trying to drag down a whole new guy to get himself made chief of staff. And Trump is going to have to find a new homeland security secretary.

I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country. We accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him!

Did someone steal Trump’s phone to stick in that attempt to look gracious?


Update

Reince says he wasn’t pushed, he jumped.

"I resigned privately yesterday," Reince Priebus tells me.
