Trump says Kelly will leave at end of year

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is the latest top official to leave the white house.

SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH) PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: “John Kelly will be leaving, retiring -- I dont know if I can say retiring.

He's a great guy.

John Kelly will be leaving at the end of the year…” Trump, a freewheeling former businessman, brought Kelly in last year to restore order to his often chaotic White House, but clashed repeatedly with him in recent months, leading to repeated news stories floating his departure.

SOUNDBITE (ENGLISH) JOHN KELLY: "Although I read it all the time, pretty consistently, I'm not quitting today." A White House official said on Saturday that Trump was talking to Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff, Nick Ayers, to take over the job.

Kelly's impending departure is part of a broad overhaul designed to recalibrate Trump's administration as it faces a new reality in Washington, with Democrats set to take control of the House in January and the 2020 presidential race gearing up next year.

On Friday he said he will nominate William Barr, who was attorney general under former President George H.W.

Bush in the 1990s, to be his attorney general.

And he’ll put forward State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert as ambassador to the United Nations.

Both are likely to face tough questions at their Senate confirmation hearings.

Democrats called Nauert unqualified and said they were concerned about Barr's independence.

Republicans said they were pleased with both nominees.
