Trump's new chief of staff is former head of U.S. Southern Command in Miami


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.
