It’s no secret President Trump has a deep admiration for the military. A new report claims President Trump is looking to replace Chief of Staff Reince Priebus with someone from the armed forces. The President prefers a General to assume the top administration post.
President Trump has said privately that he wants to appoint “a general” to replace White House chief of staff Reince Priebus, The New York Times reports.
The president, the Times reported on Thursday, has so far focused on Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly as a potential replacement, though advisers believe that would be a bad move.
Trump has reportedly said that he no longer has faith in Priebus, a former Republican National Committee chairman who was tapped for chief of staff shortly after Trump was elected.

I am sure former White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus will show up on CNN sooner rather than later but this was just in poor taste, even for Wolf Blitzer. ….
