Another White House Name Gone: John Kelly Set to Leave Trump’s Staff

Another White House Name Gone: John Kelly Set to Leave Trump’s Staffby 👨‍💻 Adam Yardley

White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly was once believed to have been drafted into US President Donald Trump’s top team in an effort to bring a new sense of order – however, if recent news from the President is anything to go by, Kelly will be the latest in a line of big names to have exited the Trump regime by the end of this year. The news comes, according to BBC News, as the retired General was thought to have come under pressure to resign – and that ongoing rumors regarding Kelly and Trump’s relationship coming to blows continued to circulate.

As BBC’s North America Correspondent Anthony Zurcher discusses, Kelly’s place at Trump’s table was, for the most part, to bring a form of ‘military discipline’ to what has been one of the most newsworthy White House administrations of recent years. Kelly becomes the 28th person to resign or be fired from the Trump administration in just under two years of the President being in charge – which Zurcher refers to as a ‘professional body count’.

“A White House job is never easy, but this administration has chewed through senior staff at a record pace,” Zurcher writes. “Donald Trump is on his third national security adviser, fifth communications director and soon to be third chief of staff. The one constant is the man in the Oval Office. He likes to say his administration operates like a well-oiled machine, but the grinding gears are amassing quite a professional body count.”

Gen Kelly is thought to have referred to Trump as an ‘idiot’ on multiple occasions, according to a recent book published by Bob Woodward, who attempted to lift the lid on events going on behind the White House doors. Kelly refuted such claims, having worked under Trump since July 2017 – replacing the outgoing Reince Priebus.

Kelly’s departure is perhaps the most high profile exit from the White House for some time – in little under two years, the President has seen nearly thirty staffers leave through what appear to be revolving doors – where will this line-up end come the 2020 Election season? Will any other staffers resign or face reprimand during upcoming tensions over the Mueller inquiry? As always, it is rather difficult to predict quite what is going to happen next – as another dramatic year in US politics closes.
