Gingrich on John Kelly: White House 'Game Changer'

President Trump announced on Twitter on Friday that Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly has been named to replace Priebus, who says he resigned Thursday.

"The problem with Washington is you live in a little tiny bubble - and this bubble is very, very different than the rest of the country".

SIEGEL: Just one point we might recall about General Kelly.

A Goldman Sachs Group Inc banker who was nominated by Trump as deputy Treasury secretary, withdrew his name in May. "I support him in that", he told CNN's Wolf Blitzer on "The Situation Room".

"I resigned and he accepted it", Priebus said to CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Friday, referring to President Donald Trump.

Trump had lost confidence in Priebus, privately questioning his competence after major legislative items failed to pass the U.S. Congress, a Trump confidant said. "But this is about not friendship".

Lately some Republicans, who until now have remained mostly mum about the president's behavior, have come out to defend Attorney General Sessions against the president's attacks and made preparations aimed at making it impossible for him to oust Sessions and name a replacement during Congress' recess.

"I can't think of a better person than General John Kelly to succeed me and I wish him God's blessings and great success", Priebus said. I Don't Even Know What To Say Anymore11.

Kelly will hope to have a better relationship with Anthony Scaramucci, the White House's new communications director, whose relationship this month appears to have spelled the end for Reince Priebus in the chief of staff role.

"It's getting in the mud", he told Hannity.

Shortly before the president deplaned, Priebus's black SUV pulled away, leaving the rest of the motorcade, including the president's vehicle, in the distance. "When you lose that component, I'm just concerned about being able to get [the Republican] agenda done, particularly when there's so much going on staff-wise". "You can have a majority, but if you don't have a governing majority, then you don't have a majority". GOP Sens. Susan Collins of Maine, Lisa Murkowski of Alaska, and John McCain of Arizona - back in Washington after a brain cancer diagnosis - doomed a last-ditch bill in Friday's early morning hours. Lisa Murkowski, who also opposed it.

"I think it was time to hit the reset button", he said. A former Democrat who does not adhere to all of his party's orthodoxy, Trump frequently shifted his own stance as to whether the Republicans should repeal and replace "Obamacare" at once or simply repeal the law for now.

Mr Trump never showed much trust in Mr Priebus, a conventional conservative and party apparatchik who as chairman of the Republican National Committee during the 2016 campaign could not hide his dismay at the NewYork tycoon's takeover of his party.

"We're seeing clear evidence that all of these distractions are standing in the way of their ability to achieve legislative accomplishments", said Republican strategist Alice Stewart, a top aide to Senator Ted Cruz's presidential campaign a year ago. "I'm here to serve the country". "The fact that we can't get it done in two swings at the plate or so - I look at these as foul balls, and I think our team is still in there swinging".
