Reince Priebus replaced as White House chief of staff

US President Donald Trump has replaced his White House Chief of staff Reince Priebus.

A day after his new Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci accused Priebus of leaking information to reporters, President Trump in a tweet named General John Kelly as his next Chief of staff.

General John Kelly currently heads the Department of Homeland Security.

The announcement of Mr Priebus’s departure came after three Republican senators defied White House pressure to vote against health care reforms.

Priebus has been under fire for weeks, seeing one White House ally after another resign or leave, culminating in the departure of press secretary Sean Spicer a week ago.
