Other aides were left to wonder about their own future. But he clashed with Scaramucci and had been under siege by Trump advisers inside and outside of the White House who complained that he was ineffectual.

Keane said Kelly is the "superstar" of the president's Cabinet, and his "strength of personality" will likely curb some of the divisiveness in the administration, although he can not change the players' personalities.

Firing Sessions or special counsel Robert Mueller - a move that has reportedly been considered by Trump and that would effectively end the Russian Federation probe that has been vexing him - could be one step too far even for this president. The ouster of Spicer and Priebus, especially in such a distasteful manner, might give even generally supportive Republicans in Congress and elsewhere pause. Press secretary Sean Spicer was reportedly upset about Scaramucci's hiring - Spicer had handled many directoral responsibilities himself - and resigned as a result.

The demeaning treatment played a role in Priebus leaving.

With a retired general in charge of his White House now, the president hopes to bring in some discipline and end the current mess inside the White House. His bluster and bluntness served him well as a Marine; he could afford to make enemies more easily when given political cover by the secretary of defense and chairman of the Joint Chiefs.

Mark Corallo, spokesman for the President's legal team, resigned amid reports of disagreements in dealing with the inquiry into claims of Russian meddling in last year's USA election and possible collusion with the Trump campaign.

Over the last few weeks, Trump has expressed frustration over the White House leaks.

Trump also promoted his Deputy Sarah sanders as the new White House Press Secretary.

Now it's time to see if he can fix the president's White House. Those orders have been stripped down by courts pending a Supreme Court review this fall.

Kelly enjoyed bipartisan support, and was credited in his tenure as secretary of Homeland Security for reducing illegal border crossings and enforcing travel bans targeting citizens of six Muslim countries.

It is also reported Mr Trump's lead attorney Marc Kasowitz, who has represented the tycoon's interests for more than a decade, will also see his role reduced in relation to the Russian Federation inquiry.

Trump has a thing for generals, and it's not surprising that he gravitates toward Kelly in particular. Yet, just days after taking office, Kelly had to lead the agency as it dealt with the chaos and confusion that ensued at airports in the USA and around the world.

"I'm going to honor the President every day", he said, repeatedly adding, "I'm not going to get into this personal stuff".
