Trump, in a tweet, described Kelly as a “great leader” and a “true star” of his administration.
He thanked Mr Priebus for his service. “We accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him,” he said.

Mr Priebus was one of the few figures from the Republican leadership to join Mr Trump’s unconventional team but found himself isolated among the Trump family members, retired generals and Wall Street millionaires who made up much of the core of the administration.

On Thursday, Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House director of communications, took to TV to all but accuse him of being the source of embarrassing leaks. Later it emerged that he had told a magazine reporter Mr Priebus would be asked to resign and used a profanity-laced rant to pour scorn on his position.

Mr Kelly is a retired Marine general, one of several senior military figures that Mr Trump has appointed to key positions.

Rich Galen, a Republican strategist, said being chief of staff was a thankless task given the chaos of this White House.

“That is even more true for a retired general, who since he was 17 years old has understood the chain of command, which simply doesn’t exist in this White House,” he said.

“He’ll give it everything he’s got, he’s a good man, he’s a good leader but I think the chaos will drive him crazy and this will be a revolving post.”
