White House chief tells staff their jobs safe_ for now

US President Donald Trump shakes hands with newly sworn-in White House Chief of Staff John Kelly

Rex Tillerson, outgoing US Secretary of State makes a statement after his dismissal at the State Department in Washington, DC, March 13, 2018.

But during Friday mornings national security briefing in the Oval Office, a White House official said told the New York Times that Trump told McMaster, "Youre not going anywhere".

Sanders, who sent a message on Twitter on Thursday evening denying the account, said she had asked the president about the report in The Washington Post and Trump said it was not accurate.

It's also possible that the President delays firing McMaster in an attempt to disprove reports in the media, one source familiar with Trump's thinking said.

Kelly reportedly told the group that Tillerson, who had contracted a stomach bug during an African diplomatic trip, was using a toilet when the chief of staff told him the news.

"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.

The commission, which coordinates trade policy for the 28 European Union members, asked for industry views on Friday on a 10-page list of products the European Union may subject to tariffs including rice, orange juice, make-up and motorcycles.

As a result, the report , for the first time since its inception in 2012, also ranked the happiness of foreign-born migrants. The annual World Happiness Report measures how happy people feel they are and why.

And junior-level aides were particularly troubled by the abrupt exit of Trump personal assistant John McEntee this week, who was removed from his job and escorted off White House grounds - then quickly handed a job on Trump's re-election campaign.

In private conversations in recent weeks with aides and friends, Trump has reflected on his desire to reshape the administration.

The president himself has said in recent days that there will always be change in his administration, and that he's still contemplating more moves.

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

Mcmaster, a three star general, and President Trump never really gelled. "Everybody has got to leave the White House at some point".

The president also recently told an ally that he was still frustrated by an interview that Kelly gave to Fox News almost two months ago in which he suggested that Trump had "evolved" in his thinking about the need for a wall on the Mexican border.

The President is absolutely fine with the outside conversation focusing on staff rumors inside the West Wing, fueling much of it himself while enjoying the speculation.
