It also comes a week after Trump hired Wall Street businessman Anthony Scaramucci, a move that sparked a long-rumored shake-up among the president's top aides. That followed tweets and an interview in which Scaramucci appeared to link Priebus to leaks from the White House.
House Speaker Paul Ryan says Reince Priebus served President Donald Trump and the American people capably, passionately and with class.
House speaker Paul Ryan, senate majority leader Mitch McConnell, Treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin, national economic council director Gary Cohn and others said: "There are many unknowns associated with it and [we] have chose to set this policy aside in order to advance tax reform".
Priebus's ouster was the latest convulsion in a White House that has been whipsawed by feuds and political setbacks in recent days. He has lobbed Twitter insults at Attorney General Jeff Sessions recently though Sessions is still in place.
In the CNN interview, Priebus refused to respond to Scaramucci's vulgar comments about him or his allegations that he was a leaker. The chief of staff took the return flight to Washington, his fate sealed in the tweets that were sent by the president just as Priebus stepped off the plane. The president eventually emerged, umbrella in hand, and delivered a brief statement on the runway as driving rain poured.
Trump issued his decision just as he landed aboard Air Force One after a visit to Long Island and hours after Republican efforts to repeal Obamacare failed in the Senate. "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". From day one, his power has been limited compared with past officials with his title.
Priebus and Scaramucci both traveled Friday with Trump for a crime speech on Long Island in NY. With a retired general in charge of his White House now, the president hopes to bring in some discipline and end the current mess inside the White House. "I can't think of a better person than General John Kelly to succeed me and I wish him God's blessings and great success", Priebus said.
His exit had quietly been in the works for weeks.
"Welp, it looks like someone's just been thrown under the Priebus", one Twitter user wrote.
