As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service in the world, TTOA offers the following information published by CNBC:
President Donald Trump’s chief of staff, John Kelly, may be out of his job soon as a result of a conflict with first lady Melania Trump and other people in the White House, seven sources have told NBC News.
Nick Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, is being considered for the job, among other candidates, three of the sources told NBC.
Two White House officials told NBC that Melania Trump had told the president earlier in 2018 that Kelly had repeatedly turned down requests to promote some of her aides, even as Kelly’s staff received promotions. Trump reportedly directed Kelly to approve the first lady’s requests after learning of the disputes.
Melania Trump’s spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham, told CNBC in a text message that “Chief Kelly and the First Lady have never ‘clashed.’”
Multiple outlets also reported that Trump also planned to remove deputy national security advisor Mira Ricardel, who is a top staffer to national security advisor John Bolton.
In an unusually harsh statement Tuesday, the first lady’s spokeswoman said Ricardel “no longer deserves the honor of serving in this White House.”
The Wall Street Journal, citing a White House official, reported shortly after that statement that Ricardel had been fired and escorted from the White House. But another official told reporters the story was untrue, and that Ricardel still worked at the White House.
