Bloomberg White House correspondent Jennifer Jacobs reports on Twitter that Trump’s chief of staff, General John Kelly, was originally going to be on the Air Force One flight to Las Vegas but was “pulled off flight” at the last moment.
Gen. Kelly was originally going to be on AF1 to Vegas with Trump today but was pulled off flight, I’m told.
WH not answering Qs about it.

Although the White House initially refused to answer her questions about this rather akward move, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders eventually said that there’s “nothing to read into here,” explaining:
He is basically always on the manifest. Sometimes he travels, and sometimes he doesn’t.
An important caveat, of course, but Huckabee’s explanation did not prevent Scott Dworkin from tweeting that not one, not two, but three people have told him that this may very well be General Kelly’s last week as Trump’s chief of staff.

Wishful thinking on Dworkin’s part (who is a Democrat after all), or is there something to it?
