The announcement follows multiple rumours spread in the media following US midterm elections, predicting the replacement of the top White House official.

US President Donald Trump has announced that his chief of staff, General John Kelly, would resign at the end of the year.

The news comes in the wake of US media speculations, saying that Donald Trump was considering potential high-level staffing changes in his administration, including replacing White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, as the administration made preparations for the final two years of the president’s first term in office.

On Friday, CNN reported, citing two unnamed sources familiar with the situation in the White House, that tensions between the president and Kelly have escalated to the extent that the two had not spoken to each other in days. According to the media outlet, top contenders for the post include Vice President Mike Pence’s Chief of Staff Nick Ayers, though no final decision about a replacement has been made. The White House has yet to comment on the rumours.
