President Donald Trump on Friday afternoon announced that he was replacing White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

In a late Friday tweet, Trump announced that Gen. John Kelly, who currently serves as head of the Department of Homeland Security, will now serve as the White House’s chief of staff.

“I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff,” the president wrote. “He is a Great American and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration.”

In a subsequent tweet, Trump thanked Priebus for his service to his administration.

“I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country,” he wrote. “We accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him!”

Rumors of Priebus’ firing have been swirling in recent days, as new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci openly feuded with him in just his first week on the job.

“Reince is a fucking paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac,” Scaramucci told the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza earlier this week.

Accused child molester Roy Moore on Wednesday came to the defense of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, who has been accused of sexual assault.

Moore's remarks came after The New York Times published accounts from a new book, which found that two of Kavanaugh's accusers were credible.

In a statement to the press, Moore defended Kavanaugh on Wednesday.

"I too was the subject of false allegations, but unlike Justice Kavanaugh and others who have suffered the ire of the left, I filed suit against my accusers and their conspirators," Moore said. "For over two years, I have not seen nor been able to question any of those who went on national television tol tell their false stories just 32 days before the election in December 2017, and ironically I have been sued for defamation for merely denying their false and malicious accusations."
