A new report has revealed that President Trump has given White House chief of staff Reince Priebus until July 4 to implement changes in his White House staff.
According to Politico, the president is considering hiring former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski as senior adviser and deputy campaign manager David Bossie as deputy chief of staff. During a meeting with Lewandowski, Bossie and Priebus, Trump said he would give Priebus an opportunity to make changes in the White House.
Trump reportedly told Preibus, “I’m giving you until July 4. I don’t want them to come into this mess. If I’m going to clean house, they will come in as fresh blood.”
In a statement to Politico, press secretary Sean Spicer denied the report of a deadline.
“Whoever is saying that is either a liar or out of the loop,” Spicer said.
There has been ongoing speculation regarding a staff shakeup in the Trump White House. Rumors of changes have become rampant in recent weeks, fueled by the resignation of communications director Mike Dubke at the end of May.
Spicer dismissed assertions that Dubke’s resignation signaled a coming shakeup, and noted that the president was “very pleased” with his staff.
