Reince Priebus Named Trump’s New Chief Of Staff
Trump will name Reince Priebus as Chief of Staff: The Donald goes with an insider to make America Great Again as he taps head of the Republican National Committee to help run the government.
President-elect Donald Trump is to name Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus as his chief of staff, according to sources.

Priebus, who helped negotiate the ‘pledge’ about supporting the ultimate winner and who stood by Trump even as other powerful members of the establishment kept their distance, emerged as a leading choice immediately after the election.
Another leading candidate was Steven Bannon, the campaign CEO, former Goldman Sachs banker and chief of Breitbart News. More
