5:00 pm
his worst week. it may be that he felt this was the time he needed to change the narrative and do something he perceived as positive in terms of acting to get his house in order. it may be that this was the week that broke the camels back. joe: you mentioned general kelly has the respect of republicans and him. do we know about his ideological leanings prior to serving in this capacity? he is a general. men, he isilitary sort of a political. -- apolitical. he's a true patriot, to coin a phrase. i'm not sure if he is ideologically right or left. he does believe in a strong military. he's advocated for the use -- i
5:01 pm
believe he was one of the people who advocated for use of force in syria. he is loyal to the commander-in-chief, and as we all know, that is an important part of donald trump's credentialed process. joe: i just want to recap how this extraordinary news broke, not surprisingly, on twitter at 4:49, tweeting, i am pleased to inform you that i've named general secretary john f. kelly as white house chief of staff. a short time later, he follows up the tweed and says, and a great leader. john has also done a spectacular security.eland he's been a truce star of my administration. it fits that this is how the news would be announced. he's taken twitter to a whole new level, and white house communication. marty: go ahead. scarlet: i was going to say, it also opens up a new vacancy that needs to be filled.
5:02 pm
homeland security needs a new head of that department. marty: it does, and that will be subject to senate confirmation. it also -- it will be interesting to see -- typically, when you make an appointment like this, the white house will issue a press release that they distribute to the media. it will be interesting to see how long that takes. this could have happened completely during that plane ride back from rhode island, and nobody -- long island, and nobody in the white house has any knowledge of it. julia: we are showing you pictures of donald trump stepping out of air force one off the back of that. what we know is he traveled with his former chief of staff, that anthony scaramucci was on the plane with him. what we don't know is if he's going to step off the plane or whether he can back. joe: if i'm on a flight, i often
5:03 pm
think of tweets i can't wait to tweed until i'm off the plane. julia: he has wi-fi on that plane. joe: president trump has tweeted again. he says, i would like to think reince priebus for his service and dedication to the country. we accomplished a lot together, and i am proud of him. he doesn't specify the nature of the departure, whether it is resignation or a firing. julia: what do you think this does to sentiment within the administration? you have people like rex tillerson saying, i'm not sure i'm going to last more than a year, apparently talking to friends. what does this do for sentiment, for cohesion. i know you said this is someone who has bipartisan support, but for everyone else, it feels like the hunger games, doesn't it? marty: as my colleague likes to say, usually, this is stuff that
5:04 pm
happens in the seventh year of a presidency, not the seventh month, and it's absolutely true. "grown-ups" in the white house have been complaining about a lack of discipline, a seeming disarray in policymaking, and a lack of focus. i would think that this would inject an element of hope that is regarded asho a strong leader will inject some discipline. again, we have said this a million times -- ultimately, donald trump will realize chaos to run a government, and he will get on message and stay disciplined. we will see if that happens, but a chief of staff who is not in charge of the president's schedule and lines of communication is doomed to failure. scarlet: doomed to failure, and it speaks to how the president runs his company and administration. he tends to want to be the one
5:05 pm
in charge. the chief of staff in this case becomes a gatekeeper and not someone who can set an agenda for the president. talk a little bit about why the president is so fond of military leaders. general kelly, not the only military leader in his administration. the president puts a lot of weight on those military leaders to play a big role. marty: and jim mattis at defense. he has a fascination with generals. he has great admiration for the military, even though donald trump himself never served in the armed forces, as we all know . he just has this view that the disciplined,are are mission-centric, and are able to get things done. we will see.
5:06 pm
don't forget general flynn was also there until he got fired, but we understand he is still talking a general flynn on occasion in the white house. julia: this is an interesting thing. are we talking about him having respect for these generals the votto do you think he will explain the advice -- respect for these generals? do you think he will respect the advice he gets? will this perhaps be a turning point? marty: that is what a lot of people will be hoping, but again, this president has shown a remarkable ability to surprise people. can listen to kelly and actually work with him in terms of policymaking, messaging, communication style, the chaos will obviously subside.
5:07 pm
i think kelly will feel the same frustration as priebus felt, that he had no power. if you are going to change chief of staffs, usually, the person you would consult with is your chief of staff. i would think donald trump took this decision with his own counsel. -- it will bert interesting to see if anyone reports who he talked to, usually his closest advisers or family, and it could be that ivanka and jerod were big supporters of priebus. it will be interesting to see how that dynamic plays out. joe: in trump's tweed thinking reince previous, he said, we accomplished a lot together. incidentally, they have not accomplished a lot together, most notably, the failure of health care last night, and you have to wonder with tax fights
5:08 pm
coming up if the administration feels it needs to get more organized. scarlet: that is a good point. reince priebus was seen as a link to the senior leadership in congress, and in particular, house speaker paul ryan. let's bring in margaret talev who joins us by phone, and presidentof course, of the white house correspondents association. tell us what you know. give us the back story if there is any so far on this stunning announcement by president trump via twitter that he has brought in john kelly, his homeland security adviser, the cabinet secretary, to become his chief of staff margaret: on some levels, this ismargaret: a surprise. but in other ways, when you think about it, you can see the path, the president talking since his campaign and the transition about how much
5:09 pm
respect he has for the generals. he's always been fond of john kelly and battle-tested him in some of the trickiest political terrain of his presidency in terms of administering or helping to administer and explain the travel ban and these sort of things. on a parallel track, when you look at reince priebus and some , they wereiculties always inherently an outfit -- odd fit and came from different camps of the republican party, but also because reince priebus was unable to help president trump close the deal on some victories that he considered so important, including health care. you can argue about whether president trump was his own biggest obstacle, but reince mettle and standing in the white house became connected
5:10 pm
to that in terms of a test. ofre was also a question trust and which transient of the republican party represented, the base nationalist wing, the establishment party, the most against, or the family, new york wall street branch -- tranche. i would put kelly moore in the category of the generals. president trump is signaling that he's going to take a general as a chief of staff. the question is, can the general control the president? joe: we have a tweed from vice president pence. he says, congratulations to my friend secretary-general john white houseng named chief of staff. julia: who do you think is ultimately behind this decision? do you think it was solely president trump, after what has been a very troubling week for
5:11 pm
the administration, or do think there were those around president trump who had issues with priebus in the past? do you think this was a one-off, or do you think more heads are set to roll? margaret: this has been sort of a slow roll. every time health care stalled, every time there was push back among factions, speculation about how long reince priebus would last has been a hardy perennial since the start of the administration and one president trump said, that's ridiculous, and he's been a little more mysterious about in recent weeks. in terms of what is next, that is a very good question. the thinking has been that it depended, assuming that he departed, submitted his resignation, as appears to have been the case, or was asked to leave, who replaced him would dictate how much of a departure
5:12 pm
there would be. how inremains to be seen 10 general kelly is on cleaning house and what confidence -- intent general kelly is on cleaning house and what confidence he has in the existing staff. he's not as much of a lightning rod candidate as many replacement candidates would have been. he is someone with a substantive record and a career that is not just political. there's not the same sense of an enemies list. it does remain to be seen how many of those folks who came in with priebus want to leave with priebus and how many want to serve the president. scarlet: what do you think is kelly's first priority when he takes on this role? we know the president has been upset with the massive amount of leaks from his administration. there are all kinds of embarrassing reports every day in "the new york times" and "washington post."
5:13 pm
what is his priority? margaret: his priority is to get the people in the white house to understand he is in charge, that nothing happens without his knowledge and consent, to demand loyalty, and to give it back, and that is something that has not been prevalent in this white house, bringing loyalty to the people they are expecting loyalty from. i think he's going to have to instill that. by doing so, he can stop the leaks. is, is donaldion trump going to let him do his job? this is a president who has shown no real ability or desire to be controlled. it will be an interesting couple weeks as kelly moves into that role. he's in the white house now, so he seem what has been going on.
5:14 pm
should conservatives be were radio i'm thinking of -- be worried? i'm thinking of the people trump has gone after. spicer and priebus, two republican national committee members who are gone. sessions. it seems to me that people who have come under target from trump are a lot of the conservatives and people holding that ideological line. margaret: i think we need to understand better what the contours of the president's thinking on the kelly decision were. for better or worse, what became apparent in recent weeks was that reince priebus didn't really have control. not only of the president's schedule, but who was talking .bout what, in what order if the thinking behind the kelly
5:15 pm
move is just to get everything under control and start moving more strategically, that will mean something different then president trump trying to thoroughly shakeout key advisors. i just think that is not apparent yet. kelly doesn't strike me on the clean-house, a shake everything up kind of move, but i think it is very follows the process this announcement. mooch would be outraged that we talked about this for 90 minutes and didn't talk about his name at all. he was a big part of this week, coming into the white house. what role, if any, do you think he has played in this decision? >> it is really hard to tell, although, in "the new yorker"
5:16 pm
profanity-laced tirade, he predicted priebus would be out. i don't know if he pushed him out. if those sentiments he expressed in "the new yorker" article he also expressed to this president, it may have solidified donald trump's thinking. it may have had a role. it may also be that he feels that the messaging coming out of the white house and the leaks coming out of the white house may in fact have been, if not done by priebus, at least somehow encouraged by him. we will see how it plays out, and i'm sure there will be reporting on the background of this, but i bet anthony scaramucci played a little. scarlet: there is anthony scaramucci. there is also steve bannon. let's welcome in josh green. when you hear this news, which
5:17 pm
is not too surprising given the reporting that has gone on this week, what do you think this says about where steve bannon positioneds he within this white house? josh: it's an interesting move from bannon's part. although there had been a lot of tension at the beginning of the administration between reince priebus and steve bannon, there was a split between bannings -- bannon's nationalist cap and priebus's traditionalist camp, the two of them became quite friendly. in the last two months, priebus has been steadily losing allies and port in the west wing, although he still got along fine with bannon, and bannon seemed to be one of the few people backing him up. i don't think this was an indication that bannon had a lot sf faith in priebus' effectiveness.
5:18 pm
i think it was teaming up with someone he could dominate, but it became increasingly clear had no real influence, not with president trump, not with republicans on the hill, and i think the failure of the republican effort to pass a health care bill kind of put an explanation -- exclamation mark on that. trump has been brooding for a long time and looking for someone to blame. clearly, the blame fell on priebus. as far as kelly coming in, bannon is favorably inclined towards kelly, because killing has been so willing to take a law and order approach to immigration enforcement, which is an issue that bannon and the nationalist camp care a great deal about. i don't know if bannon is any worse off with kelly in. scarlet: that is interesting. my question was going to be,
5:19 pm
what the john kelly accomplished as department of homeland security? the fact that he took that long order approach brings them closer to steve bannon perhaps. julia: what do you think at this point is the relationship between steve bannon and president trump? this actually doesn't change the mix in any way. if there are those around trump who wanted to see priebus out, does it not also suggest that their eyes are focused on steve is to have over president trump? there >> are always people in the west wing who want to take out steve bannon, in the same way there are people in the west wing who want to curb the influence of reince priebus and jared kushner and everybody else. i don't know if this weakens bannon, although i think it is notable that abandon and priebus both tried to stop the appointment of anthony scaramucci as new white house
5:20 pm
communications director and were unable to do so, but i think -- heucci's performance has had a rocky rollout with some very public meltdowns i think scaramucci. 's performance may have reminded trump of the value of having someone more disciplined and who could be more disciplined than a general than a general to come in as chief of staff? scarlet: we have a headline crossing indicating that reince resignedndicated he rightly yesterday. according to reports, reince priebus said he resigned yesterday. there were reports he had been looking for a job this week and was interviewing with different places. joe: you mentioned that john kelly, familiar with what is going on in the white house -- he knows with eyes wide open what he is getting into. when anthony scaramucci was brought in, it raised a lot of attention that he seemed to be
5:21 pm
able to bypass the chief of staff and report straight to the presidency. given what you point out about the importance of the chief of do think it isb possible that ultimately scaramucci will have to report to kelly? marty: that is what i would do, and in fact, it's a very good test to see how kelly is going to approach this job. isthe job of chief of staff controlling the message and controlling access, you cannot have somebody reporting directly to the president. they must all come through the chief of staff. it will be an interesting test to see where that line of command stays the way it is or whether kelly says, nope, everybody reports to me. of coarse, you cannot make that happen -- of course, you cannot
5:22 pm
make that happen if you are a family member of donald trump, so that dynamic will still be there. his family , ivanka and jared, will have access to the president anytime they want. that is one of the challenges a chief of staff has when you have your daughter and son-in-law in official positions in the white house. it makes things very difficult. julia: john kelly has clearly been part of this administration. he has a sense of what being in this white house is going to mean going forward. he seemingly has the respect of president trump who called him a star. there is respect there. what do think there is about donald trump that could rein in donald trump and hold this administration together more firmly? think it is donald trump's admiration and respect
5:23 pm
for military generals overall. throughout the campaign, trump delighted in surrounding himself with generals when he was in trouble, when he was in the midst of scandal. he tended to surround himself with generals. when he renounced his slur against president obama for being a birther, he held this wild scene in the trump hotel in washington, d.c. and was surrounded by about a dozen generals as he delivered this message. i think the projection of power and military strength is something that appeals to trump's ego, and on some subconscious level, trump understands that having a weak chief of staff in priebus and an inexperienced white house communications director in anthony scaramucci is something that needs to be counterbalanced by the experience and discipline of a general like kelly. scarlet: that is a good point. the president certainly appreciates the optics of the strength and discipline of the
5:24 pm
military, but what if this particular general, john kelly as chief of staff, cannot stop the leaks? does he also get blamed as a result? josh: it is impossible to predict this sort of thing with donald trump, but one telltale indicator of how things might go wrong is to look at another general in the administration, h.r. mcmaster, who came in in similar circumstances after michael flynn, trump's first national security director, had to leave. it was a high profile announcement. trump was very flattering of mcmaster and clearly liked having a general, and yet we have seen and heard reporting that trump has become unhappy with mcmaster, has lashed out. i don't think it holds that just because a general is in a position of power in a trump
5:25 pm
administration that trump is going to subdue his behavior. joe: of course, the next big legislative thing is tax reform. there have been reports about influence that bannon has had on that, including a tax hike on some of the richest earners. do you think it is possible that the tax package could have a ban in flavor? -- a bannon flavor? josh: the reason bannon is doing this is because he recognizes that the political optics of trumps health care push, the idea we are going to take money away from health care spending and redirect it towards tax cuts for high earners is a bad look politically. bannon advocated raising the top marginal tax rate on people who make over $5 million to 44%, which is a small but not insubstantial raise, which bannon believes would help to blunt the charges that tax
5:26 pm
reform was geared towards the rich rather than the middle class. if you were able to succeed in that, theoretically, trump's moves might have a broader appeal than the health-care effort, which was unpopular. there isn't any indication to me that other people in the west republicans,ly not have any interest in raising taxes on wealthy earners. scarlet: i want to thank you both for joining us and giving us your analysis. marty, senior executive editor of "government and economics" in washington, and josh green, author of "the devil's bargain." from new york, this is bloomberg. ♪
