WASHINGTON, July 28 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said in a tweet on Friday he has named Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly as White House chief of staff, replacing Reince Priebus, who has been in a feud with Trump's new communications director.

"I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff. He is a Great American ... and a Great Leader. John has also done a spectacular job at Homeland Security. He has been a true star of my Administration." Trump said on Twitter.

"I would like to thank Reince Priebus for his service and dedication to his country. We accomplished a lot together and I am proud of him," he added.
