President Donald Trump says chief of staff John Kelly will leave his job at the end of the year. Kelly wasn't seen at the White House during the day on Friday, but did attend a senior staff dinner in the evening, one of the people said.

But news website The Daily Caller - which has close ties to the Trump administration - reported one White House source had dismissed claims of Kelly's departure as 'absolutely untrue'. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss a sensitive matter.

"Now is the best opportunity to be laser-focused on further building out the political infrastructure that will support victory for President Trump and the GOP in 2020", campaign manager Brad Parscale said in a statement.

In a deep dive into the career of Nick Ayers, who now serves as a top aide to Vice President Mike Pence, Politico asked author Tony Schwartz what he thought about the 36-year-old Ayers who has the strong support of Pence, as well as Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.

But after the midterm elections in November, Trump said "let's see what happens", about Kelly's future at the White House, during an interview on "Fox News Sunday". The president often remarks on Kelly's lack of political skills and has told advisers in recent days that he needs a more political chief of staff for his reelection. They said Kelly could be out before the holidays.

Raptors 905 waives Kay Felder after domestic violence charges
The Raptors have made a decision to part ways with third-year guard Kay Felder , who was recently charged with domestic violence. Felder, a Detroit native, was originally drafted by the Atlanta Hawks but was traded to the Cleveland Cavaliers on draft night.

Kelly, a retired four-star Marine general, has been the president's top aide since late July 2017.

Kelly has had a tougher relationship with Trump than his predecessor did and instituted more restrictions around who could reach the president.

Trump and Kelly have privately argued at times and complained about each other to confidants, sometimes in colorful language.

He announced Friday that he'll nominate William Barr, who served as attorney general under President George H.W. Bush, to the same role in his administration. Bolton had criticized Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen during an Oval Office discussion about the border, and Kelly stormed out of the West Wing after their profanity-laced argument spilled over into the hallways.
