President Donald Trump has replaced Reince Priebus and named Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly his new chief of staff, the president announced in a series of tweets Friday.

Trump praised Priebus to reporters in Washington.

"Reince is a good man," he said. "John Kelly will do a fantastic job. General Kelly has been a star, done an incredible job thus far, respected by everybody. He's a great great American. Reince is a good man."

Because all big stories have Miami ties: Kelly is the former head of U.S. Southern Command in Miami. Priebus is a University of Miami law school graduate.
