Trump Focused On 2020 After John Kelly's Departure
President Donald Trump’s Saturday confirmation that chief of staff John Kelly will soon leave the White House signaled more than the end of a tortured relationship.
It was the latest sign of Trump’s singular focus on his 2020 re-election campaign.
Trump is likely to replace Kelly — a former Marine General who brought little political experience to the West Wing — with Nick Ayers, an ambitious young operative who is now Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff.
