Trump called Kelly a "great leader and a great American" in his tweet.
"I am pleased to inform you that I have just named General/Secretary John F Kelly as White House Chief of Staff", Trump tweeted.
The battle-hardened, outspoken commander's new mission is to steady the roiling Trump administration - and quiet the friendly fire - as White House chief of staff.
"I will continue to serve as a strong supporter of the president's agenda and policies", Priebus said in a statement shortly after the news broke Friday evening. Mr Priebus travelled with Mr Trump on Friday to an appearance in Brentwood, New York, where the president thanked him for his service and "dedication to his country".
Asked by reporters if Priebus was sacked, incoming White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said, "We all serve at the pleasure of the president". "And I'm not real fond of people who try to show off the strength of their egos by using the profanity and vulgar language that Mr. Scaramucci used to describe Steve Bannon and Reince Priebus".
It wasn't until after the President named Kelly as his new chief of staff on Friday afternoon that sources close to Priebus reached out to reporters to say that he had resigned the day before.
"I think Reince was terribly effective, but was probably a little bit more laid-back and independent in the way he ran the office", Mulvaney said. The moved ended months of speculation about Priebus' fate and came among infighting and turmoil in the early stages of the Trump White House. "He must now quickly replace Secretary Kelly with someone experienced and measured who understands that homeland security is not a partisan issue".
Anthony Scaramucci will not take a White House salary
Although he is new to the White House, Scaramucci had been employed at a senior level by the Export-Import Bank since June 19. He also phoned a reporter to unleash a profanity-filled rant against Mr Priebus, whom he called a "paranoid schizophrenic".
Preibus told CNN later Friday that he had tendered his resignation Thursday and that Trump had accepted it.
Kelly, who starts his new job on Monday, is a retired four-star Marine general whom Trump frequently credits for dramatically reducing the number of undocumented immigrants coming into the USA from Mexico.
Priebus was just the latest former RNC official to leave the administration, following the departure of White House press secretary Sean Spicer - who resigned in protest over Scaramucci's hire - and the ouster of deputy chief of staff Katie Walsh, a key Priebus ally who exited the administration after just two months on the job.
Trump gushed over Kelly's record at an event in NY on Friday afternoon.
"I got off the phone and I needed to talk to someone about it because it was frankly the most insane conversation I'd ever had with a government official".
It would appear that this different direction is John Kelly, Donald Trump's pick to replace Priebus.

Priebus came under even more scrutiny recently when Trump brought on financier Anthony Scaramucci as communications director. The New Yorker published a profanity-laced interview Thursday in which Scaramucci called Priebus a "paranoid schizophrenic".
Then, he was the subject of a remarkable public rebuke on Thursday by the new White House communications director. In an interview on CNN last night, Priebus said he talked to Trump on Thursday and offered his resignation.
The MLC while saying that more resignations from SP are in queue appreciated the PM's slogan "Sabka Sath, Sabka Vikas". Former chief minister and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav accused the BJP of being behind the resignations of his party MLCs.
