Trump has occasionally chafed at the restrictions Kelly has placed on who has access to see him, and had considered replacing Kelly with Mick Mulvaney, the White House budget director, or Nick Ayers, the chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence.

Last month, Mr. Trump told reporters he didn't know how long Kelly would stay on board. The Trump White House immediately pushed back against these rumors, calling them "fake news". "He became my chief of staff, Gen. Kelly", Trump said in the Oval Office.

Kelly, who just hit the one-year mark, told staff members Monday that Trump asked him to keep the job for the duration of his first term, and he accepted. Porter was sacked, and amid the fallout, other aides said Kelly lost some of his clout with the President.

He writes: "Congratulations to General John Kelly".

Kelly had been widely expected to depart the post sometime this summer. A Fox News interview in which Kelly suggested that Trump's thinking on his signature border wall was evolving was an early flash point, followed by the fallout from the Porter controversy.

Kelly has often joked publicly about how working for Trump is the hardest job he's ever had, including those on the battlefield.

"He comes down for the day, and whatever he saw on 'Fox & Friends, ' he schedules meetings based on that", a former White House official told Politico.

"I spend more time with the President than anyone else and we have an incredibly candid and strong relationship", Kelly said in a statement at the time. "Kelly is essentially calling Trump's bluff", says Sherman. "He's a wonderful man".
