Trump to name Milley new Joint Chiefs chairman

US Army Chief of Staff General Mark Milley is President Donald Trump's choice to replace General Joseph Dunford as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

The rocky relationship between Trump and Kelly, 68, a retired Marine Corps general, has been widely reported. Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff, Nick Ayers, is a possible contender, the source said.

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

Kelly had sought to bring more order and stability to a White House that has often been chaotic under the unpredictable Trump.

The retired four-star general and former Homeland Security director tried to bring order to the White House, but he and the president are said to have grown tired of one other in recent weeks.

"The Mueller questions to Kelly centered on a narrow set of issues in the investigation of potential obstruction of justice, chiefly Kelly's recollection of an episode that took place after new reporting emerged about how the President had tried to fire Mueller", CNN reports.

Kelly has seen his status as chief of staff diminished in recent months, with the President circumventing numerous policies and protocols the retired Marine Corps general put in place when he entered the West Wing a year ago.

Washington has been abuzz with rumours about Kelly's job status at various moments during his 16-month tenure.

Among White House officials, however, there is broad consensus that his days as chief of staff are numbered.

Trump and Kelly have privately argued at times and complained about one another to confidants, sometimes in colourful language.

It is unclear who the replacement would be.

Task & Purpose contacted several officials at the Defense Department and military services, but none of them had been informed about Trump's pending announcement. As we reported right after the midterms, Ayers' backers have been telling the president he has the sharp political instincts to remake the West Wing to better combat the hazards ahead.

"She's very talented, very smart, very quick, and I think she's going to be respected by all", Trump said.
