Trouble Brewing in White House as Trump Reportedly Readies to Fire Kelly

Report: Kirstjen Nielsen Ousted From WH

When asked Tuesday about possible staff changes, Trump declined to comment on specifics, only telling reporters: "We'll be talking about it".

A smiling Ricardel had a prominent spot at the front of the room at a White House celebration marking Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, on Tuesday.

The remark is uncharacteristically harsh for the first lady, but there's a backstory.

Her arrival in the White House this spring as deputy national security adviser coincided with a series of stories in the media suggesting that President Trump was not satisfied with Mattis, the Washington Post reported in October.

"The president supports Mrs. Trump's activities and her work, which should be the signal to the rest of the staff to support her, too", McBride, who has worked for three Republican presidents, said via email.

More rumblings of a post-election shake-up up emanated from the White House on Tuesday with jobs of another Cabinet secretary and the president's chief of staff in jeopardy.

Matt Wennerstron, a 20-year-old college student, said the shooter apparently had a 10-15-round magazine on his gun. His classmate says Long suffered serious PTSD after his tour and tried to get help from therapists and doctors.

One of the sources familiar with the mood at the White House said tensions began building to a crisis point about a month ago and serious efforts were made to defuse the dispute. The last thing we want is someone who needs hand-holding'.

Nielsen's role in the Trump administration has been uncertain for some time.

Trump is said to have this weekend told advisers of his plan to get rid of her as Nielsen's one-year job anniversary of December 6 approaches. Sources say her firing could result in Kelly's departure.

A source familiar with Ricardel's White House performance said Ricardel also ran afoul of much of the NSC staff and "sort of alienated everyone" except for Bolton, the veteran conservative foreign policy expert who has been her immediate superior.

At the peak of controversy over the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" family-separation initiative, Nielsen nonetheless stood at the White House lectern and delivered a vigorous defense of the measures.

"Border security is the most basic and necessary responsibility of a sovereign nation", Nielsen's statement said, following the news of her letter.
