Donald Trump is fond of firing people via Twitter. His head of the FBI found out while he was giving a speech in California — his audience pointed out to Comey that it was scrolling across the TV screen. Now, Trump just found out that it is better to give than receive — and did he ever receive.
His chief of staff, John Kelly decided to leave at the end of the year. Since then, the Donald has been talking up the 36-year-old replacement, Nick Ayers. Unfortunately, the current chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence and supposed new chief of staff to POTUS decided to spend more time with his family:
@realDonaldTrump, @VP, and my great colleagues for the honor to serve our Nation at The White House. I will be departing at the end of the year but will work with the #MAGA team to advance the cause. #Georgia‘
Ayers leaving came at quite a surprise. After all, he has been lobbying for the job, according to CNN, and he has been with Pence for over a year.
Apparently, he and his almost-new-boss were not able to come to terms. Trump insisted that the younger man stay two years, but that did not work for Ayers. Then too, the internal resistance to him taking the job was huge.
Instead, the nearly new Chief of Staff said he was moving back to his home to Georgia to his family. Ayers said he could take the job temporarily, but Trump declined.
