White House: No personnel changes imminent

Tony Sayegh is being pushed hard by his current boss Treasury Secretary Mnuchin a source said

Turnover among White House senior staff during Trump's first year was at least twice as high as that of any of the five past presidencies, according to Brookings Institute research. Bolton, who said last fall that "the only diplomatic option left" in North Korea was regime change, has tempered his comments during recent appearances as speculation ramps up that he could replace McMaster as national security adviser.

White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly reassured West Wing employees Friday that there are no more staff moves planned, pushing back against media reports of further pending changes among President Trump's advisers.

It capped a chaotic morning that saw the Kelly-led White House and the State Department insisting on contrradictory timelines covering when Tillerson learned he would be replaced as America's most senior diplomat.

The conservative TV analyst Larry Kudlow was named as economic adviser on Wednesday, after Gary Cohn quit over trade disagreements. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson is the latest top official to leave a USA administration where turnover has been inordinately high.

Kelly has also worn on the president, confidants of the president said.

Kelly also hinted that numerous rumors of cabinet members up on the chopping block, could have been spread by Trump himself, Axios reported.

Egypt: citizens overseas to vote Friday in presidential el
The commission did not provide the number of Egyptian registered voters living overseas . The voting process for overseas residents will last for three days.

President Trump said Thursday in the Oval Office that news reports of a coming mass exodus from his White House are 'very false'.

Kelly urged staffers that "we should do exactly that we do every day and that is come to work and do the very best job we can and that is exactly what we are focused on", Sanders said.

He was reportedly furious when Trump chose to oust Tillerson in a tweet. Trump is willing to take his time making the change to avoid humiliating McMaster and carefully choose a strong replacement, the Post said. Some individuals whose names have been floated for open positions have even phoned cable news hosts who are known to regularly speak with Trump, hoping that they can put a good word in with the President.

"The President controls the timing here", another White House official told CNN, nodding to the fact that nothing is certain until Trump deems it to be.

Trump's nominee to be the next secretary of state -CIA director Mike Pompeo - is a longtime favorite of the president who has demonstrated rare ability to navigate the West Wing.

The president is said to remain pleased with Mattis, as the defense secretary rarely publicly disagrees with Trump and has succeeded in quietly working through any differences, according to three White House officials and outside advisers. And Trump's allies on Capitol Hill have not been notified of any major changes and have been told not to expect anything immediately.
