At this point, any position within Donald Trump's administration is subject to change.
According to a new report by The Washington Post, Donald Trump still makes frequent contact with ousted adviser Steve Bannon from his personal cell phone when his new Chief of Staff John Kelly isn't around.
According to the Daily Beast, the former "Apprentice" co-star-who now serves as the communications director for the Office of Public Liaison-has seen her direct access to the president limited since Kelly took the top White House job in late July, according to sources. On day 1, he already vowed that he would strictly control both access and information flow to President Trump so that from now on not a single piece of unvetted information or message would be land on the president's desk again.
These are admittedly low bars, and even Haberman and Thrush acknowledge that it's basically routine office management.
Mr. Kelly, the former Marine general brought in five weeks ago as the successor to Reince Priebus, reacted calmly, but he later told other White House staff members that he had never been spoken to like that during 35 years of serving his country.

Quade said democrats are working to get a veto override of House Committee Bill Three, recently vetoed by Governor Eric Greitens. Trump will meet with congressional leaders to hammer out those details on Tuesday, a White House official said.
White House aides admitted that the President Of The United States uses Fox News as his primary source of information, not the intelligence community.
Likewise, Trump's confidantes outside the White House have said that the president has used the switchboard to call them.
But Kelly reportedly isn't thinking about leaving his job, and on Friday, Trump tweeted this about Kelly. According to the latest Times report, coauthored by Trump monitor nonpareil Maggie Haberman, Kelly has tried to take a light touch with the President, but has not been able to entirely maintain Trump's enthusiasm for him.
But the government's largely well-received handling of the storm has not soothed Trump's own frustrations, according to those who speak with him regularly. Second of all, he wants to maintain a good relationship with Breitbart, because if Breitbart turns on him, that's going to turn the alt-right against Donald Trump and kill any chance he may have to run another successful election, should he survive, politically, until the next election. "He doesn't like how Kelly's handling him".
