White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is expected to resign in the coming days as his relationship with President Donald Trump deteriorates, CNN is reporting.

The news network said the two men have stopped talking in recent days. Trump already is reportedly discussing a replacement plan.

CNN attributed its information to two sources familiar with the situation.  

The report followed one by Axios that noted White House officials widely believe Kelly’s departure is imminent. Axios noted that Nick Ayers, chief of staff to Vice President Mike Pence, will replace him.

Axios also reported that senior officials have viewed Kelly as living on borrowed time and said Trump has long been fed up with him.

Kelly's role has been diminished in recent months, according to CNN. Trump has circumvented many of the policies and protocols Kelly had put in place.

Kelly has faced numerous reports in the past that he was threatening to resign. But in July, Trump had tweeted his congratulations to Kelly for marking his first year in the position.

NBC News reported last month that Kelly’s clashes with first lady Melania Trump might lead to his departure before the end of the year.

Kelly's spats with the first lady have revolved around staff promotions for her aides and travel requests, sources told network news.

"There's one problem John Kelly has that'll do him in, and that's the first lady," a source close to President Donald Trump told NBC News.
