After a few days of speculation, Donald Trump confirmed that his chief of staff John Kelly would be leaving his position at the end of the month.
He is now the second chief of staff to leave the White House since Trump became president in January 2017 and 28th person to leave the administration overall.
Speaking to reporters outside the White House on Saturday, Trump said:
John Kelly will be leaving… I don’t know if I can say ‘retiring'.
We’ll be announcing who will be taking John’s place, it might on an interim basis.
Kelly and Trump haven't always seen eye-to-eye and there have been multiple stories about tensions between the two ever since Kelly replaced Reince Priebus in July 2017.
One of the defining features of his time in the White House will be the constant despair on his face whenever Trump was giving a public speech.
That being said, his resignation is hardly a shock as the Trump administration seems to operate on a revolving door policy, with new faces virtually coming and going every day.
News of Kelly's impending resignation soon started to circulate on Twitter and it's fair to say that not many people will miss him.
A few jokes were made about his exasperated expressions.
Some did try to defend him and his attempts to derail some Trump policies.
Let's not forget the most notorious policy that he oversaw during his tenure.
There is a chance that we could be seeing him pop up again in the very near future.
