White House chief of staff John Kelly expected to step down soon

John Kelly, the White House chief of staff, is likely to leave his post in the next few days, ending a tumultuous 16-month tenure still among the longest for a senior aide to President Donald Trump, two people with direct knowledge of the developments said Friday. But Trump aides warn that Ayers is more a Pence advocate, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo has apparently criticized Ayers' foreign-policy skills.

Trump is actively discussing a replacement plan, though a person involved in the process said nothing is final right now and ultimately nothing is final until Trump announces it.

"I can give you a little hint: It will have to do with the Joint Chiefs of Staff and succession", Trump said. But Ayers has also faced some resistance. But each time the two have decided to make amends, even as Kelly's influence has waned. The president often remarks on Kelly's lack of political skills and has told advisers in recent days that he needs a more political chief of staff for his reelection.

The retired Marine Corps general has spent 16months in the position.

Trump had earlier pledged publicly that Kelly would remain through his first term in office, though many in the West Wing were skeptical.
