Chief of staff favorite says no

Trump's Chief of Staff post in the air after his top pick refuses to replace Kelly

'(Ayers's) unique qualification was that he had been doing the same job for the vice president, ' She said, adding 'those us us with young kids very well understand the personal decision he made'.

Rogers Smith: Absolutely, I think that is a big part of his appeal. He's a smart guy.

"And I'll tell you, there will be changes".

KEITH: And finally, after just 16 months on the job, the reports of Kelly's departure were no longer premature.

Meadows' communication's director, Ben Williamson, confirmed the statement in a tweet. "He has not been campaigning for the job".

Lighthizer hinted he wasn't interested in the job when appearing on "Face the Nation" Sunday.

"Serving as chief of staff would be an incredible honor", he said. There's been no offer and no conversations (with Trump).

The North Carolina congressman is known to be a fierce supporter of the president and his experience on Capitol Hill will be an advantage in 2019.

Sources speaking on the condition of anonymity told The Hill that Trump and Meadows talk nearly every day on a range of topics.

Grace Millane: Police start murder inquiry
They said they had taken a man into custody at 3pm and were speaking to him in relation to the murder of Millane. Ms Millane, from Essex, graduated from university in September and had embarked on a year-long worldwide trip.

Sputnik: Nick Ayers is largely believed to be that person, that politically-minded chief of staff, albeit he's only 36 years-old, it's been reported that he has family commitments and wants to return to Georgia by the school year, whereas Donald Trump is going to want a two-year commitment.

It was not immediately clear whether Trump had a new favorite for the post. "There has to be some kind of personal relationship there to backstop the professional relationship", one source said.

The president is considering current Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and Republican Representative Mark Meadows, chairman of the right-wing House Freedom Caucus, one source said.

And according to a new report from Vanity Fair reporter Gabriel Sherman, President Donald Trump has his own shallow spite to blame for this embarrassing state of affairs.

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and Trump's former deputy campaign manager David Bossie were also among the names being floated by some close to the White House Sunday.

Following the deadly white-supremacist rally in Charlottesville in 2017, Kelly was reportedly furious at Trump's tepid response, and said he would have taken a "resignation letter and shoved it up his arse six different times", according to sources in journalist Bob Woodward's White House tell-all, "Fear: Trump in the White House".

One name that has arisen in conversation is his long-term adviser Marty Obst, who is still based in IN because he works in the private sector, but travels to Washington often and is frequently at the White House, according to the source.

Upon learning that Voight was at the White House, New York Times columnist Wajahat Ali noted that the scene looked like "the sequel to Deliverance".
