By Associated Press • 28 July 2017

WASHINGTON (AP) – His White House in turmoil, President Donald Trump abruptly announced late Friday he was appointing Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly to be his chief of staff, ending the tumultuous six-month tenure of Reince Priebus.

After months of speculation about Priebus’ fate, Trump tweeted his decision as he landed in Washington after a speech in New York in which he lavishly praised Kelly’s performance at Homeland Security.

Priebus, the former Republican National Committee head, had been a frequent target of rumors about his job security amid infighting and confusion within the White House and a long whisper campaign by Trump allies. Then, on Thursday, he was assailed in a remarkable and profane public rebuke by Trump’s newly appointed White House communications director, Anthony Scaramucci.

Priebus said he had offered his resignation on Thursday and the president accepted though those close to the president said the ouster had been in the works for weeks.

“I think the president wanted to go a different direction,” Priebus told CNN just hours after his exit was announced. He added that he agreed the White House might well benefit from “a reset,” and he said, “I’m always going to be a Trump fan. I’m on Team Trump.”

    Comment: Kindergarten mentality from our EU colleagues in Chisinau, Bucharest, Budapest and Brussels

    Russia is preparing retaliatory sanctions against people who decided to ban the Russian plane which carried Russian Deputy Prime Minster Dmitry Rogozin from entering Moldova and thus disrupted his visit to this country, Rogozin said on Saturday in an interview, an extract from which was broadcasted on the Russia 24 TV channel.

    He explained his sharp statement in Twitter on the future response made right after the incident a normal reaction of any man to the insult of people (passengers of the plane, including women and children).

    “There will be a response, of course. It, of course, will not be as emotional as the first reaction. We will determine who was behind these decisions in Chisinau, Bucharest, Budapest and Brussels. We will determine the people who took these decisions.

    Our sanctions will be measured and targeted,” he said.

    Answering to the question on the terms of retaliatory measures, Rogozin stressed that sanctions would be applied “when there will be suitable time and place.” He added that Russia “knows how to respond.”

    The Russian deputy prime minister also told about Moldovan President Igor Dodon’s reaction, saying that Dodon regarded the situation with banning the passage for the plane with the Russian delegation on board as a “provocation against him.” “He formally acted as the inviting side, he carried certain responsibility, he had his own agreements with the government of his country. This is like a slap in the face,” the Russian deputy prime minister concluded.

    Rogozin’s visit to Moldova on Friday was disrupted by Romania’s rejection to allow the Russian S7 plane carrying a Russian delegation on board to pass. The regular flight Moscow-Chisinau was banned to enter Romania’s airspace by the air-traffic management service on the pretext of a presence of a “sanctioned person” on board. The plane landed in Minsk, after which the deputy prime minister flew to Moscow from the Belarusian capital by Aeroflot.
