Don’t fire anyone until you have the replacement hired.
“Nick Ayers, the leading candidate to replace John Kelly as President Donald Trump’s chief of staff, announced Sunday he will not be taking the job, reviving discussions about who will succeed the retired Marine general when he leaves at the end of the month.
“Ayers, who has served as Vice President Mike Pence’s chief of staff for more than a year, turned down the position because he could not agree to terms with the President, a White House official told CNN.”
I’ve read that this Ayers is a slick operator. He doesn’t want to get the stench of The Russian Usurper on his career. It’s one think to work for Mother Pence, it is entirely another to work for the first prznint who will be arraigned for treason, but I’m only guessing.
