'President Donald Trump ready to fire NSA Lt Gen McMaster'

Kelly tries to reassure White House staffers: No more personnel moves for now

U.S. National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster is most likely the next official to leave the Trump administration, following a string of firings and resignations, according to an online betting website said which put the odds against him staying at 3/2.

It was a week of turbulence in the West Wing - beginning with the President's decision to fire his secretary of state on Twitter - and whispers of more dismissals created the impression among White House staff that there would be a staffing upheaval come Friday. Top economic adviser Gary Cohn and communications director Hope Hicks are leaving the White House in coming weeks. Kelly has also worn on the president, confidants of the president said.

In that latter version of events, Tillerson asked Kelly to persuade the president to keep his powder dry until he returned to the US on Monday.

The New York Times reported that Tillerson was told to cut short his diplomatic trip and return to Washington on the call.

Goldstein attributed it vaguely to 'demands in the secretary's schedule'.

Tillerson's frustration at being sacked over social media has a precedent: Former Chief of Staff Reince Priebus found out Kelly had replaced him when Trump tweeted from Air Force One, while it idled on a tarmac and Priebus sat in a auto nearby. I stand between the press and the president. Reports of tumult in the administration were at such a feverish pitch - even on Trump's beloved Fox News - that the president on Thursday reflected on the latest staff departures during an Oval Office conversation with Kelly and Vice President Mike Pence.

And junior-level aides were particularly troubled by the abrupt exit of Trump personal assistant John McEntee this week, who was removed from his job and escorted off White House grounds - then quickly handed a job on Trump's re-election campaign.

The shaken-sounding outgoing cabinet secretary explained that his official ending date will be March 31, and that he aims for an "orderly and smooth transition" for his replacement, CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

'They wrote a story about staff changes today that was very false, ' Trump said, without singling out any news outlet.

Sources say Trump is more poised to make significant changes now because he is back in his comfort zone, with a year in office under his belt.

President Trump has chose to remove H.R. McMaster as his national security adviser and is actively discussing potential replacements, according to five people with knowledge of the plans, preparing to deliver yet another jolt to the senior ranks of his administration.
