The former White House chief of staff insisted in a Friday night interview that his ouster by President Donald Trump "is actually a good thing". He is a great American ... and a great leader. He said he had tendered his resignation to the President on Thursday, the same day the newly-appointed White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci was quoted vowing to force the Chief of Staff out. Those questions sharply escalated this week with the arrival of Trump's new communications director, who was hired over Priebus' objections and reports directly to the president.

Priebus, who was brought on by the outsider President in large part because of his Washington relationships, also wound up carrying a hefty share of the blame for the White House's legislative stumbles. The entire Administration loves him and no one is comparable.
That means Reince Priebus is out. Will Kelly really be able to instil order out of the chaos that is engulfing the White House?
Mr Priebus's departure was announced 15 hours after the president's signature drive to repeal his predecessor's health care program collapsed on the Senate floor.
