Reince Priebus Tapped As White House Chief of Staff
NEW YORK — Donald Trump on Sunday tapped the man with the funniest name in politics, Reince Priebus (pronounced Ryense Preebus) — the Republican Party chairman who helped engineer his stunning presidential victory last week — as his White House chief of staff.
Trump also considered campaign CEO Stephen K. Bannon for the slot, but announced that the former Breitbart News executive would serve chief strategist and senior counselor for the administration that takes office in little more than two months.
“I am thrilled to have my very successful team continue with me in leading our country,” Trump said in a statement. “Steve and Reince are highly qualified leaders who worked well together on our campaign and led us to a historic victory. Now I will have them both with me in the White House as we work to make America great again.”
