>> Tell us.>> Reince is a good man.>> President Trump naming a new chief of staff on Friday, announcing Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly will take over as the president's top aide. Moving to stabilize his administration after an especially turbulent week.>> John Kelly will do a fantastic job.
General Kelly has been a star. Done an incredible job thus far, respected by everybody. A great, great American.>> Kelly, one of three retired generals at the top of Trump's administration, replacing Rience Priebus, who was seen as a bridge to the Republican party establishment. Priebus viewed by other White House staffers as insufficiently loyal.
New Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci insulting Priebus in a profanity-laced interview in the New Yorker, one of many bitter rivalries in Trump's White House. Steve Holland covers the White House for Reuters.>> Scaramucci felt like Priebus had kept him from getting a high level job at the White House.
Scaramucci had been a campaign advisor last year and expected to get a big job. Priebus, for whatever reason, did not give him one. They shuffled him off to the Export-Import Bank and then he got back in the President's radar in recent weeks and was hired. And over the objections of Reince Priebus.
And so there's some tension there.>> Kelly, a former general in the Marine Corps, leading Trump's immigration crackdown as head of the Homeland Security department.>> Reince Priebus, a good man, thank you very much.>> Priebus following former White House Press Secretary, Sean Spicer to the exits, releasing a statement saying quote, it has been one of the greatest honors of my life to serve this President and our country.
And wishing Trump and Kelly the best.
