White House chief of staff Kelly to resign in days

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly to resign - report

'I appreciate his service very much'.

Kelly, a retired general and the former secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, has been chief of staff since July 2017.

Kelly is expected to be replaced with Nick Ayers, who is now chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence.

Trump is further expected to announce Heather Nauert as the new U.S. ambassador to the United Nations on Friday, replacing Nikki Haley.

Kelly and Trump have grown tired of each other.

The report was published shortly after the outlet revealed that Kelly is likely to be ousted from the White House in the coming days and that he's no longer talking to President Donald Trump.

Kelly's future in the Trump administration had been uncertain for almost a year, ever since a DailyMail.com report in February revealed domestic abuse allegations against former White House secretary Rob Porter, and raised questions about Kelly's handling of the affair.

All of the people asked not to be identified discussing a sensitive internal White House matter.

Vanity Fair reported Kelly shouldered most of the blame for the Porter incident, and The New York Times reported Trump expressed his frustration with Kelly during a call with former chief of staff Reince Priebus. Both Nielsen and Kelly were expected to be fired as part of a post-midterms cabinet shakeup by Trump, but have thus far held on to their positions.

Washington has been abuzz with rumors about Kelly's job status at various moments during his 16-month tenure. Kelly's role, though, has lessened in recent months as the president has instead followed his own counsel, and added like-minded aides to his staff.

News of the latest staffing changes come as the president named William Barr as his new Attorney General.

This story is breaking and being updated.
