Between the new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci's awful few days and the seemingly utter chaos in the White House, the administration is hard at work putting out fires.

In a recent interview, Scaramucci was quoted as saying Priebus would "be asked to resign very shortly".

"Reince is an (expletive) paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac..."

Both Priebus and Spicer were part of the Republican National Committee, and the bridge that linked the party to Mr Trump.

"If these two powerful leaders truly become a team, the Trump presidency will become one of the most effective in our history", Gingrich said.

Republican lawmakers voiced their support for Reince Priebus, President Donald Trump's chief of staff whose resignation was announced Friday, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, who said his fellow Wisconsinite "left it all out on the field".

"John Kelly is a great American".

Kelly is the current secretary of Homeland Security.

Krauthammer called Priebus "a good man", but said the structure Priebus had in place at the White House was not working and effectively making it an administration in "chaos".

Ball, 38, previously worked in investment relations at SkyBridge Capital, the wealth management firm Scaramucci sold before taking his post at the White House. General Kelly has been a star, done an incredible job thus far, respected by everybody. "He has helped seal the border and reduced illegal immigration by 70 per cent", she said. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. "The entire administration loves him and no one is comparable".

Despite Scaramucci's assertions that Priebus was unfit for his duties, the president thanked Priebus "for his service and dedication to his country" in a tweet.

"I've always said to him, anytime either one of us think that we need to make a change or move in different direction let's just talk about it and get it done", Priebus explained.

"I will continue to serve as a strong supporter of the president's agenda and policies", he said. I honestly don't believe there is a lot of people out there that actually believe that campaign people were sitting on telephones and having meetings and passing secret messages trying to figure out how to mess around with the election. Sarah Huckabee Sanders has since been appointed as Spicer's successor.

It was a dramatic exit for Priebus who was in Trump's motorcade when the announcement was made.
