Chris Christie 'Strong Option' to Replace John Kelly

President-elect Donald Trump gestures as he speaks during the first stop of his post-election tour in Cincinnati

The 36-year-old caught the eye of many pundits who believed he would be the president's pick, however, the president called the rumors "fake news".

Ayers confirmed the decision in a tweet Sunday, thanking Trump and Pence for giving him the opportunity to work in the White House.

There were several people who were reported to be on the president's short list who seem to have taken their names out of the running.

But with the new year less than a month away and 2020 getting nearer on the horizon, Trump is likely looking to his re-election campaign in 2020 and making sure he has the right people in the right places.

According to the Journal and other outlets, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin and Office of Budget and Management Director Mick Mulvaney have both chose to stay happy where they are rather than take on the role.

"You really have to, if you're going into that job, seriously think of lawyering up because of the legal risks that along with having private conversations with Donald Trump", Whipple said. Trump has chosen William Barr to replace Jeff Sessions as attorney general.

At some point Wanzhou even became a permanent resident of Canada - although she has since relinquished her status. The US alleges Huawei used a shell company to sell equipment in Iran in violation of US sanctions.

"Serving as Chief of Staff would be an incredible honor", Meadows told POLITICO in a statement Monday. Ayers claimed, however, that he would also be leaving the White House soon.

Conway's husband, George, who has frequently spoken out about Trump saw it differently in his response to a tweet from Dartmouth University administrator Daniel Benjamin.

Reacting to court filings on Friday about hush money payments made to former Playboy model Karen McDougal and porn star Stormy Daniels, Trump raged once again on Twitter that he was the victim of a "WITCH HUNT!" Bossie has also served in leadership for the conservative activist group Citizens United. "This is a hot White House", the president contended. Whitaker previously served as chief of staff for the Department of Justice.

Axios first reported the president's consideration of Meadows, one of his fiercest defenders in the House since he took office.

Kelly said he planned to stay in the role through the 2020 election, but repeatedly clashed with the president and members of Trump's family. Additionally, Kelly's image deteriorated considerably with his handling of controversial subjects, including the situation with former White House staff secretary Rob Porter, who was accused of abuse by two of his ex-wives. Striking that balance in the turbulent times of Trump has bedeviled Kelly and his predecessor, Reince Priebus, and will be the defining challenge for whoever is selected next.

Monday morning he tweeted about the Russian Federation investigation, just hours after tweeting about his chief of staff choices.
