FLASHBACK: Trump Swiped at Obama for Having 3 Chiefs of Staff in Less Than 3 Years
With the announcement that John Kelly is leaving the White House, an old tweet of President Donald Trump‘s blasting his predecessor has resurfaced.
Before Obama chief of staff Bill Daley left in January 2012, Trump tweeted, “3 Chief of Staffs in less than 3 years of being President: Part of the reason why @BarackObama can’t manage to pass his agenda.”

Now, after Reince Priebus and John Kelly, Trump is set to have three chiefs of staff in less than three years. (The frontrunner to replace Kelly, per numerous reports, is VP chief of staff Nick Ayers.)
And as the cliché goes…
it really is amazing how there always is a tweet https://t.co/efGDGcLyCv
