  • Trump replaces chief of staff Priebus

Trump also thanked Priebus for his service.

Brooks said he rarely agreed with Priebus but he was an "honorable gentleman" who Scaramucci could learn from.

He also said he would "continue to serve as a strong supporter of the president's agenda".

"The president has the right to hit the reset button and I support him", Preibus told CNN.

Back in November, Mr Trump appointed Mr Priebus - who had no governing experience in Washington - as his chief of staff, putting him at the power centre of the Trump administration. "He has been a true star of my Administration", Efe news quoted President as saying in a series of tweets on Friday. Both Priebus and Scaramucci accompanied him on the trip.

Priebus's ouster was the latest convulsion in a White House that has been whipsawed by feuds and political setbacks in recent days.

Past year the Mercury Prize was won by grime artist Skepta for his album Konnichiwa , beating David Bowie's Blackstar. Sheeran's latest album, "Divide", topped charts in the United States and Britain earlier this year.

Trump was aboard Air Force One as his tweets were issued.

Trump tweeted Friday evening that Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly would take over as chief of staff. "General Kelly has been a star". In the end, however, those warnings fell on deaf ears and further soured Trump, who nearly from the start suggested both publicly and privately that the job of his chief of staff was not safe. He's a great great American.

Now it's time to see if he can fix the president's White House. On Thursday, Sanders declined to tell reporters whether the president still had confidence in his chief of staff.

The former Republican National Committee chairman faced a hard task from the outset as he attempted to wrangle a hodgepodge of rival staff factions divided by ideology and allegiance, his influence supplanted by several other top advisers - including the President's own kin - who reported directly to Trump and not to the chief of staff. He praised what he said was a "guy from Kenosha, Wisc. who revitalized the Republican National Committee and became White House chief of staff".

I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff.

Priebus' hold on the White House job has always been in question, more so this week after Trump's new communications director badmouthed him to a reporter for the New Yorker.

Priebus, as party chairman past year, was slow to embrace Trump's candidacy, and the president never let his chief of staff forget it. Trump had often joked about his chief of staff's long-term loyalty and liked reminding the people around him that Priebus suggested that he consider dropping out after the "Access Hollywood" tape of Trump's crude remarks about women was made public in October.

U.S. Representative Michael McCaul, a Texas Republican who chairs the House Homeland Security Committee, is among those being considered for Homeland Security secretary, a DHS official said.

"He has served the president and the American people capably and passionately", Ryan said. "He has achieved so much, and he has done it all with class. I don't know how to explain it any better than that, but it's very incredible".

It's unclear who will replace Kelly as DHS secretary.

The announcement capped a fraught 24 hours in which the president's advisers waited for a change they had long anticipated. "The president and Republicans insisted the DHS Secretary be confirmed on day one but now the President leaves this critical national security cabinet post vacant".

"I think Secretary Kelly has drank the Kool-Aid", Sen.
