"Though Trump asked Kelly over the summer to stay on as chief of staff for two more years, the two have stopped speaking in recent days", CNN White House reporter Kaitlan Collins wrote on Friday.

The report was published shortly after the outlet revealed that Kelly is likely to be ousted from the White House in the coming days and that he's no longer talking to President Donald Trump.

She says the two men no longer speak, and the situation "is no longer tenable".

Depicting folktales and local legends, artists will showcase ancient painting forms like Gond, Madhubani, Phad, Warli and Thangka. Presenting the art will be master craftsmen and craftswomen themselves, who are keeping these traditional arts alive.

One senior administration official said Friday that it's clear Kelly will be leaving, though it's not certain that the departure was imminent as CNN reported.

Like all of those interviewed, the person spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive personnel matters.

The Wall Street Journal reported in late June that Trump had consulted his advisers on a replacement, sources familiar with the matter said. Potential replacements include Nick Ayers, Vice President Mike Pence's chief of staff, who is still seen as a leading contender.

Authorities said some 8,000 people were demonstrating in Paris , where 600 people had been searched and briefly arrested. They argue the president is out of touch with ordinary people and many are calling on him to resign.

But the story line of Kelly's departure has been protracted for so many months that White House aides often now just shrug.

Kelly, a decorated Marine Corps general, is widely regarded as one of the most well-respected and qualified members of the Trump administration. Trump has chafed at Kelly's management style and resisted some of his moves to instill discipline in the West Wing and contain chaos.

Trump and Kelly have privately argued at times and complained about each other to confidants, sometimes in colorful language.

Trump also announced that State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert is his pick to replace Nikki Haley as the next US ambassador to the United Nations, and he said he'd have another announcement Saturday about the military's top brass. On Friday, he announced that he had picked William Barr for attorney general and Heather Nauert for United Nations ambassador.
