The search for President Trump's next chief-of-staff continues, but we're getting closer to a decision.
Speaking at the White House Thursday afternoon, President Trump said he has narrowed down his choices.

During an interview with Fox News, President Trump said he is still open to ideas about who should replace General John Kelly, but that he's looking for someone who "thinks like him."
"I want someone that's strong but I want someone that thinks like I do. It's my vision, it is my vision after all. At the same time I'm open to ideas," Trump said.

Yesterday it was announced House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows is no longer being considered.
"Congressman Mark Meadows is a great friend to President Trump and is doing an incredible job in Congress. The President told him we need him in Congress so he can continue the great work he is doing there," White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich is also in the running for the job.
Im pretty sure Im still in the running.
You never know.
He hasnt called and said Im not in the last five.
Arent you all gonna be sorry when you see old blueunicorn6 on tv at the White House doing.....well....Chief Of Staff stuff.
And I wont remember any of you.
You can ask me for stuff and Ill just laugh.
David Bossie would be good.
Cough cough. That figures.
How about Donald J. Trump for Chief of Staff? I mean really, what has either Priebus or Kelly really done to make the administration better or advance the President’s agenda? Both have been more of a drag on Trump than an benefit. So cut Kelly lose and let Trump be Trump without anyone doing eye-rolls or face-palms in the background.
Leo Panetta. Yeah right. /s>
Just ask me for something.
I double dog dare you.
I would ask Gen Flynn :)
Pretty sure someone on MSNBC will say
Five? Yeh - me,myself,and I along with Melania’s husband and Barron’s father.....They never let anything go by , even totally innocent if they can stomp the Donald....
Oh, yeah... I guess it wasn’t my idea after all.
How would Gov. Huckabee do? Is he tough enough?
That’s my pick right there..for two reasons, one being Flynn deserves the job after what was done to him..and secondly, just to see lefty heads go boom boom
Perhaps that is what you want?
If I could get Sarah Palin, do you think Id give her to you?
He was interviewed by Cavuto this aft. Was watching with the sound down at my mom’s house. Then they showed a pic of Chris Christy and I said, “Awww HELL no!”
