Ayers is considered one of the best political strategists in Mr. Trump's circle, and advocates say he could provide crucial help to the White House, as previous chiefs of staff have, in meshing with and reinforcing the re-election campaign messaging, strategy, presidential travel and fundraising.

Kelly faced intense scrutiny in February and March over his response to the resignation of White House staff secretary Rob Porter, who faced allegations of domestic abuse from both his ex-wives.

Rumors of Kelly's departure had swirled for more than a year amid persistent reports of tensions between Trump and his chief of staff.

"John Kelly will be leaving - I don't know if I can say "retiring", Trump said. Trump is becoming increasingly concerned about Democrats taking over the House in January, and has privately said he needs someone else to help shape the last two years of his first term, which he predicts will be politically focused.

"Give Nick a call", Trump has instructed people, referring to Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff, Nick Ayers, according to one person familiar with the discussions.

White House chief of staff Kelly to resign in days
Washington has been abuzz with rumours about Kelly's job status at various moments during his 16-month tenure. Among White House officials, however, there is broad consensus that his days as chief of staff are numbered.


Reports of Kelly's impending departure have been circulating for months.

Kelly spent more than four decades rising through the Marine Corps ranks before retiring in 2016 as a four-star general. He has complained repeatedly that Kelly is not politically savvy.

Trump is actively discussing a replacement plan, though a person involved in the process said nothing is final right now and ultimately nothing is final until Trump announces it.

Both the attorney general and United Nations ambassador positions require Senate confirmation.
