Donald Trump announced Friday that his budget director Mick Mulvaney will step in as acting chief of staff to replace John Kelly — amid indications the president is struggling to fill the key post.
Trump, whose presidency is increasingly embroiled in legal troubles, announced earlier this month that Kelly, a former Marine Corps general, was leaving.
Kelly, who reportedly fell out with other close Trump aides, is only the latest in a long string of high-ranking officials to quit the embattled White House.
Kelly agreed to stay on until at least January 2 to avoid leaving the president in the lurch. Source: BSS
