In a change of leadership in the White House, President Donald Trump says retired General John Kelly is his new chief of staff.
Kelly is currently the secretary of Homeland Security.
He replaces Reince Priebus.
Trump wrote on Twitter: 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.
Speaking to a crowd on Friday in Brentwood, New York, Trump called Kelly one of our great stars. When Trump returned to Washington, he told reporters that John Kelly will do a fantastic job and is respected by everybody.
Trump also called Priebus a good man.
The announcement comes after days of talk that Priebus no longer had the confidence of the president.
Kelly is a retired four-star Marine general. He is now the third general in Trump's group of top advisers. They include are National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster and Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis.
Last Friday, Sean Spicer resigned from his job as White House press secretary. That same day, Trump named Anthony Scaramucci the new White House communications director.
In an interview published Thursday evening in The New Yorker magazine, Scaramucci harshly criticized Priebus and said that he would be asked to resign from his job very soon. Some news reports said Priebus resigned from his position Thursday night.
Also this week, the U.S. Senate failed to pass the Republican-backed repeal of the Obamacare health care plan. Repealing and replacing the health care plan was a major Trump campaign promise.
Trump took office six months ago. He has had trouble turning some of his campaign promises into legislation.
