Trump replaces chief of staff Priebus after six month run with Kelly

President Donald Trump replaced his beleaguered White House chief of staff, Reince Priebus, after only six months on the job on Friday, installing retired General John Kelly in his place in a major shakeup of his top team.
President Trump naming a new chief of staff on Friday - announcing Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly will take over as the president's top aide, moving to stabilize his administration after an especially turbulent week.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) DONALD TRUMP, U.S. PRESIDENT, SAYING:

"John Kelly will do a fantastic job. General Kelly has been a star. Done an incredible job thus far, respected by everybody. A great, great American."

Kelly - one of three retired generals at the top of Trump's administration -- replacing Reince Priebus, who was seen as a bridge to the Republican party establishment.

Priebus viewed by other White House staffers as insufficiently loyal - new communications director Anthony Scaramucci insulting Priebus in a profanity-laced interview in the New Yorker... one of many bitter rivalries in Trump's White House.
