Yet Another Shakeup Coming to Trump White House in 2019

Linkedin Share

In an effort to maintain a diverse and evolving approach to governing, President Donald Tump has long been unafraid of making number personnel changes in short order.

The President himself is both dynamic and perhaps a bit bombastic, lending to an air of tumult within the White House.  Whether that concern is of significance to the efficacy of his governance has yet to be fully known, but we are certainly experiencing an economic period unlike any that we’ve previously experience.

Something’s working.

And, in that spirit, Donald Trump is looking to make yet another change in his inner circle for the New Year ahead.

President Donald Trump confirmed on Saturday that John Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general, will be leaving his post as White House Chief of Staff at the end of the year.

President Trump made the announcement that Kelly will be gone by year’s end on the White House’s South Lawn on Saturday in a conversation with reporters.

“John Kelly will be leaving – I don’t know if I can say ‘retiring,’” Trump said per White House pool reports. “But, he’s a great guy. John Kelly will be leaving at the end of the year. We’ll be announcing who will be taking John’s place… I’ll be announcing that over the next day or two. But, John will be leaving at the end of the year. He’s been with me almost two years now… John Kelly will be leaving toward the end of the year, at the end of the year.”

Trump also announced on Saturday morning, via Twitter, his selection for the next Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the U.S. Military, Army General Mark Milley.

Kelly and Trump have certainly experience their share of dissonance over the course of his tenure, so to see the President speak highly of Kelly on his way out the door wasn’t a guarantee.
