Reince Priebus confessed he holds no grudge against Donald Trump even after he appointed John F. Kelly to take over his job as chief of staff. On Thursday, the U.S. president made the appointment Twitter official and expressed his high hopes for the new White House member. He did not miss the chance to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication for the past six months.

Trump's latest White House shake-up

The announcement came a day after Reince Priebus privately submitted his resignation and after he was targeted by Anthony Scaramucci for allegedly leaking White House information.

The new communications director suggested that the former chief of staff should explain his version of the issue if he wants to clear his name from the controversy.

Reince Priebus was even branded "f--king paranoid schizophrenic" and "paranoiac" by Anthony Scaramucci who believed that the former chief of staff was responsible for leaking his dinner meeting with Donald and Melania Trump, Sean Hannity, and Bill Shine.

The new communications director personally called a reporter of the New Yorker to ask for the identity of the person who leaked the information. But when Ryan Lizza refused to give him a name, Anthony Scaramucci threatened to fire all members of the communications team.

“They’ll all be fired by me. I fired one guy the other day. I have three to four people I’ll fire tomorrow," he told the reporter after failing on his second attempt.

The newly installed White House staff went on to specifically mention Reince Priebus as the person responsible for allegedly leaking his meeting. Anthony Scaramucci even guaranteed that the then-chief of staff will be asked to step down from his post immediately.

Two days later, Donald Trump announced John F. Kelly's appointment as the new White House chief of staff which has caused the public to question the timing of Reince Priebus' resignation. When asked to comment about Anthony Scaramucci's allegations against him, the former chief of staff said he does not want to engage in something that will dishonor the U.S.


He explained that he will continue to respect and support the Donald Trump and his agenda, and will avoid getting into his personal stuff. "Look, it's over. I'm moving on. I support the president and I support John Kelly and the president's agenda," he said as cited by AOL.

Reince Priebus even assured that all is well with him and reiterated that he has opened up about his plan to resign from his White House post with the POTUS a few days ago.
