ABC News reports:
There’s a new chief of staff in town. Retired Gen. John Kelly was sworn in today as President Trump’s most senior staffer in the White House. Trump replaced Reince Priebus with Kelly last Friday. Kelly had left his post as secretary of homeland security to assume his new White House role.
“He will do a spectacular job, I have no doubt, as chief of staff,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office today after Kelly’s swearing-in ceremony at the White House. “What he’s done in terms of homeland security is record shattering.”
He added, “I want to congratulate you on having done a fantastic job, general, and we look forward to – if it’s possible – an even better job as chief of staff.” Kelly, 67, is a retired Marine four-star general and former head of U.S. Southern Command.
