Rumors of Kelly's imminent departure surfaced repeatedly over the past few months and CNN reported on Friday that he and Trump "have stopped speaking in recent days".

Mr Kelly had been credited with imposing order on a chaotic West Wing after his arrival in June 2017 from his post as homeland security secretary.

"I appreciate his service very much", he added.

She says the two men no longer speak, and the situation "is no longer tenable".

Some reports said that the retired Marine Corps general's relationship with Mr Trump had deteriorated.

"John Kelly was well-positioned to structure access, to try to get pieces of the puzzle put on the table for the president", Baier said. But Ayers offered to postpone it and become chief of staff temporarily.

The president says an announcement about a replacement will be coming in the next day or two.

CNN reported on Friday that Trump had been discussing a replacement plan.

Kelly has been on the verge of resigning or being fired before, only to bounce back every time. There's a lot of buzz around Nick Ayers (the Vice President's Chief of Staff) being the pick, which would probably have some heads exploding in the press briefing room.

And Maggie Haberman, the paper's White House correspondent, tweeted: "Senior staff meeting canceled".

Trouble surrounded Kelly before he began his stint as chief of staff.

Trump began circumventing numerous policies and protocols Kelly enacted.

Trump often vacillated between criticizing and praising Kelly, sometimes within minutes of each other.

The president's staff largely comprises aides who survived a purge Kelly initiated early in his tenure that forced out prominent figures including Steve Bannon and Omarosa Manigault Newman. As Trump spoke to the media in a visit to Trump Tower in New York, Kelly sat by the side, grimacing. Some lower-level White House staffers believed Kelly had lied to them about when he knew of the allegations and when he made clear to Porter that he'd have to leave.

This is is far from the first time Kelly has been rumoured to be on the brink. He insulted Rep. Frederica Wilson, D-Florida, using inaccurate information, later declaring he would "never" apologize. He has many detractors within the White House, where some people consider him brash and presumptuous. Kelly is reportedly on his way out.
