Former Governor Mike Huckabee on White House Changes: It’s Not that Chaotic!

Audio clip:

What Chaos? Hoping to turn the page on a tumultuous opening chapter to his presidency, President Donald Trump insisted today that there is "no chaos" in his White House as he swore in retired Marine Gen. John Kelly as chief of staff. In an Oval Office ceremony, Trump predicted Kelly, who previously served as Homeland Security chief, would do a "spectacular job." And the president chose to highlight an improving stock market and strong jobs outlook rather than talk about how things need to change under Kelly. Trump on Friday ousted Reince Priebus as chief of staff and turned to Kelly, whom he hopes will bring military discipline to an administration weighed down by a stalled legislative agenda, infighting among West Wing aides and a stack of investigations. While Trump is looking for a reset, he pushed back against criticism of his administration on Twitter Monday. He said: "Highest Stock Market EVER, best economic numbers in years, unemployment lowest in 17 years, wages raising, border secure, S.C.: No WH chaos!"

Todd spoke to Former Governor of Arkansas, Mike Huckabee who says as much as he likes Reince Priebus and thought he existed with grace, he is not surprised by his leaving.
