TRUMP TWEET: Reince Preibus Is Out, General Kelly Is In

President Donald Trump tweeted late Friday afternoon to announce that General John F. Kelly would be the new White House Chief of Staff for his administration, coming less than one day after White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci said if former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was the leaker, President Trump would have his resignation immediately.

God Emperor Trump

As Department of Memes reported yesterday,  Scaramucci threatened to fire everyone under him and have President Trump force the resignation of former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus after the newest round of White House leaks, potentially making good on the threat he made shortly after taking his position late last week.

From The New Yorker:

“They’ll all be fired by me,” he said. “I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow. I’ll get to the person who leaked that to you. Reince Priebus—if you want to leak something—he’ll be asked to resign very shortly.” The issue, he said, was that he believed Priebus had been worried about the dinner because he hadn’t been invited. “Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci said. He channelled Priebus as he spoke: “ ‘Oh, Bill Shine is coming in. Let me leak the fucking thing and see if I can cock-block these people the way I cock-blocked Scaramucci for six months.’ ” (Priebus did not respond to a request for comment.)

Scaramucci also recently tagged Priebus in a tweet condemning leakers. He later deleted the tweet, and said it was misunderstood.

Stop A Commie

Priebus has been singled out as the leaker many times by Infowars and other alternative media outlets.

General Kelly has previously shared his thoughts on illegal immigration, and his views seem to be in agreement with the president’s.

From Defense One:

In comparison to other global threats, the near collapse of societies in the hemisphere with the associated drug and [undocumented immigrant] flow are frequently viewed to be of low importance,” Kelly told Defense One. “Many argue these threats are not existential and do not challenge our national security. I disagree.”

Suggesting there is no bad blood between the president and Priebus, President Trump quickly sent a followup tweet wishing Priebus well.
