Trump's new chief of staff takes over a White House in chaos

01 Août 2017

In fact, economic growth averaged 2 percent in the first half of this year, which Trump promised to lift to 3 percent.

A former congressional adviser for the Marines, Kelly won plaudits earlier this year for his handling of the maelstrom over Trump's travel ban, taking the heat for wording that didn't pass court muster and seeing through revisions that held up before the Supreme Court.

President Trump said that there is no chaos in his administration as his new chief of staff reports to the White House for his first day on the job, but he continued to threaten Congress that he would cut lawmakers' health insurance plans in a series of tweets on Monday morning.

After a particularly tumultuous time in his presidency, Trump is trying to highlight a positive jobs outlook and strong stock market.

US stock indexes have risen around 9 percent since Trump took office in January, partly on investor hopes of legislation such as lower corporate taxes, and the country's already low jobless rate has dipped further, to a near 16-year low of 4.3 percent.

Both Priebus and Spicer worked together at the Republican National Committee before joining the administration.

Scaramucci courted controversy with an eye-watering attack on his colleagues - one targeting chief of staff Reince Priebus, who left his job last week, and chief White House strategist Steve Bannon. "I'm always going to be a Trump fan".

"Jared and Ivanka are very supportive of him (Kelly) coming in and have a tremendous amount of admiration for him and will follow his lead on how he wants things done", a source told CNN on Sunday. On how he would deal with rising tensions with North Korea, Trump said only: "It will be handled". "That is what the American people voted for", Lewandowski said. The U.S. also said it conducted a successful test of a missile defense system located in Alaska.

Another diplomatic fissure opened Sunday when Russian President Vladimir Putin said the USA would have to cut its embassy and consulate staff in Russia by several hundred under new sanctions from Moscow. On Twitter Sunday, he said: "Don't give up Republican Senators, the World is watching: Repeal & Replace".

The president has publicly slammed Attorney General Jeff Sessions over his recusing himself from the federal investigation of Russia's interference in the 2016 election and possible ties to Trump associates. White House Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said he thought Priebus had been effective "but was probably a little bit more laid back" in the way he ran the office.
