President Donald Trump has said that his chief of staff, John Kelly, will be "leaving at the end of the year".

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is soon to resign, according to numerous reports on Friday.

One senior administration official said Friday that it's clear Kelly will be leaving, though it's not certain that the departure was imminent as CNN reported. Trump has taken the unusual step of inviting Ayers to recently accompany him on Air Force One, even without Pence present, the people said.

Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff, Nick Ayers, has reportedly been considered as a possible replacement for Kelly.

Trump spoke to reporters at the White House before departing for the Army-Navy football game in Philadelphia.

Kelly, too, has made no secret of the trials of his job and has often joked about how working for Trump was harder than anything he'd done before, including on the battlefield.

"Sure, Trump says he wants him gone, and Kelly swears and leaves and says he's not coming back".

The retired four-star Marine Corps general has joked publicly that working for Trump is the hardest job he's ever had, including those on the battlefield.

Trump had earlier pledged publicly that Kelly would remain through his first term in office, though many in the West Wing were skeptical. He has complained repeatedly that Kelly is not politically savvy. "I'll be announcing that over the next day or two". We'll be announcing who will be taking John's place.
