Pence head of staff, aged 36, eyed to replace John Kelly

Nick Ayers could almost be confused for a brother-in-law as he blinks a wide laugh in a selfie who was taken with Mike Pence just a few moments after the governor’s name Donald Trump’s running mate. In fact, the biblical campaign strategy in the white underwear had a key role in Trump’s choice of Pence in 2016. And two years later, Ayers’s band with Pence is stronger than ever, as well as his band to the president.

An estimated campaign veteran at the age of 36 grows Ayers as a leading contender to replace the White House chief of staff John Kelly whose departure has long been the subject of speculation.

If the chosen Ayers were to return to a political mind for the role of Trump’s presidency, entering a new, more dangerous phase where he fights for re-election while eliminating new monitoring efforts from a democratic house.

In any administration, the role of the White House, the Human Resources Division is divided between the responsibility of supervising the White House and managing the man sitting in the oval office. Striking the balance of President Trump’s turbulent times has bedeviled both Kelly and his predecessor, Reince Priebus. If Ayers becomes the third person dealing with the job, it will be his most important challenge &#821

“He handles as much as I have ever seen,” said Phil Cox, a former colleague at the Republican Governor’s Union, who bought Ayer’s political consulting business earlier this year.

Mr. Trump is said to have warmed to Ayers in part by seeing the effectiveness of Pence to a large extent independent political activity. Vice President’s Chief of Staff for the past 18 months, Ayers has been supported by Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, President’s Daughter and Senior Sons and Senior Adviser to take on the new role of White House officials. 19659002] Ayers would be the youngest staff manager since 34-year-old Hamilton Jordan served under Jimmy Carter.

But before Ayers gets his crack at the leadership of White House staff, he must first overcome resistance from some who might

On Air Force One on Sunday when Mr Trump returned to the United States from a turbulent two-day trip to Paris, claimed aides that the president was Ayers who was the wrong person for the job, according to two people familiar with the issue, The Associated Press reports. More than half a dozen administrative assistants talked about Ayers on terms of anonymity to discuss the sensitive staff issue, AP reports.

In some corners of the White House, Ayers is skeptical of how he has led Pence’s office, which works largely independently of Trump West Wing. Some in the White House blame Ayers for planting news stories critical of the administration or its strategies, while others complain about his efforts to circumvent the president’s political activities. Some assistants have called to call him “Tricky Nicky.”

Ayers did not respond to a request for an interview from The Associated Press. But allies said he was keen to take on the head of the staff’s job. He and Mr Trump have discussed the possibility of making the switch for several months.

Allies said that while Ayers is not so deeply experienced in foreign policy as some of his predecessors, he had developed experience that advised Pence on global affairs. He has been a frequent participant in Mr Trump’s daily briefing briefings, sometimes even when Pence was not present.

The time of Kelly’s expected departure is not clear, but the White House’s aides predict that it will take place in anticipation of the anticipation of Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in the coming months. Sources familiar with the matter told CBS News Nielsen will leave, but say that the timing is uncertain. Just last month, Trump praised his response to devastating hurricanes, and she has been a mocker for president’s policy, including immigration.

But sources said she could become a victim of the president’s frustration that his immigration agenda stalled.

Kellyanne Conway, senior housekeeper, tried to dispel Tuesday on the anonymous reports of a staff shake.

“Why are they anonymous? Could it be that it is not fully verified and true?” she said.
