President Donald Trump announced via Twitter Friday afternoon that he has a new White House Chief of Staff. "He is a Great American and a Great Leader". John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security.

Priebus is the fourth high level White House official that has left the Trump administration since inauguration.

Kelly is entering the White House amid a major staff shakeup, which started last week with the appointment of Anthony Scaramucci to the communications director position.

Priebus traveled with Trump earlier in the day to an appearance in Brentwood, New York, according to the Associated Press.

About Priebus, he wrote, "I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country". "I was wrong. You accomplish great things everyday defending our nation and I know your exceptional work will continue".

The split also has important implications for investors, who have keenly awaited signs Trump will introduce massive tax cuts as well as a spending boost.

In the same interview, he also defended the president on Russian Federation, particularly a report that indicated White House Senior Adviser Jared Kushner had proposed a secret communication channel with the Kremlin so that discussions before the inauguration could not be detected. The chief of staff took the return flight to Washington, his fate sealed in the tweets that were sent by the president just as Priebus stepped off the plane.

Both Priebus and Spicer were part of the Republican National Committee, and the bridge that linked the party to Trump.

Scaramucci accused Priebus of being behind the leaking of unflattering news stores, a cardinal in Trump's eyes.

Priebus, who told CNN he frequently addressed his job status with Trump, also was blamed by some within the White House for the failure of the Republican health care plan, with some Trump allies believing that Priebus' longtime relationships with Republicans on Capitol Hill should have ensured the bill's passage.

Since Priebus' fate was tied the failure of congressional Republicans to repeal Obamacare, a source told NBC News, Kelly's ability to rub elbows with lawmakers could be a plus for the White House.

Meanwhile the White House attempted to add clarity on tax reform, one of the policy promises most widely hoped for among investors.

Gregory Duco, head of USA economics at Oxford Economics, said: "The ideological healthcare reform battle in Congress, and ongoing political rumblings in DC, are weighing on consumers' expectations".

"I am always going to be a Trump fan".
