Trump says chief of staff John Kelly to leave at year's end

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly at a meeting between US President Donald Trump and Republican Congressional leaders at the White House in Washington on Sept 5 2018

"Though Trump asked Kelly over the summer to stay on as chief of staff for two more years, the two have stopped speaking in recent days", the report says.

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is soon to resign, according to numerous reports on Friday.

Trump has made it known that he will not force Kelly out but is prepared to let him leave in his own time, people familiar with the situation said. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter. "It's not his strength", Trump said. Nick Ayers, the vice president's chief of staff, is seen as a leading candidate.

A source told Reuters last month that Trump was considering a replacement for Kelly.

Still, both are said to be ready for Kelly to move on.

Some reports said that the retired Marine Corps general's relationship with Mr Trump had deteriorated.

Trouble surrounded Kelly before he began his stint as chief of staff.

Kelly has had a tougher relationship with Trump than his predecessor did and instituted more restrictions around who could reach the president.

Trump had nothing but praise for the two new Cabinet members who he announced Friday he would nominate. On Friday, he announced that he had picked William Barr for attorney general and Heather Nauert for United Nations ambassador. As Trump prepares for his 2020 reelection campaign, some advisers have counseled him to replace Kelly with a sharper operative who can steer the administration through the daily - and hourly - political fights sure to come.
