Donald Trump SACKS White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus in shock move that rocks Washington DC

Donald Trump has named John F Kelly as his new White House chief of staff after sacking Reince Priebus.

But he has privately floated potential replacements for Priebus, including Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, deputy national security adviser Dina Powell, chief economic adviser Gary Cohn and former campaign adviser David Urban, according to three people who've been in conversation with the president and senior staffers recently. "He is a Great American", he wrote.

Trump has repeatedly praised Kelly for his operation of homeland security, including tighter border controls and a travel ban from six Muslim countries that is now the subject of a lawsuit.

Priebus' exit indicates the full decline in the White House of the RNC-led Washington wing.

4 dead after small plane crashes on Utah highway
At the time of the 2002 crash, the two brothers were then partners in a now-defunct gyroplane-building business building. Police said there was a gap in the traffic on the highway when the plane crashed, so no one on the ground was hurt.

Scaramucci had initially tried to dismiss any reports of a soured relationship with Priebus, but that facade crumbled when The New Yorker published his profanity-filled screed against Priebus and other White House aides. Trump quickly added that Priebus has "done a great job".

Instead, Priebus opened the doors and arguably did more than anyone else in the party to embrace the coming force.

He told CNN on Thursday that "if Reince wants to explain he's not a leaker, do that". Now, he wanted to know whom I had been talking to about his dinner with the President. "Ever", Priebus said in October when the Access Hollywood video was revealed. Priebus is close with House Speaker Paul Ryan, a fellow Wisconsinite.
