"Morning Joe" co-hosts Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski are urging President TrumpDonald John TrumpMarine unit in Florida reportedly pushing to hold annual ball at Trump property Giuliani clashes with CNN's Cuomo, calls him a 'sellout' and the 'enemy' Giuliani says 'of course' he asked Ukraine to look into Biden seconds after denying it MORE's family to "get out of the way" and allow the president's new chief of staff to bring order to the West Wing.

"Family members who want Donald Trump to succeed need to let his Chief of Staff do his job," Scarborough wrote on Twitter Tuesday. "They need to get out of the way."

"It's time for Donald Trump's family members to get out of the way and let professionals run the White House," Brzezinski tweeted. "Actually, it is way past time."

Trump abruptly announced on Friday that he had tapped now-former Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly as his new White House chief of staff. 


Kelly, a retired Marine general who had served at the Department of Homeland Security since January, is said to want to impose order in a White House that has, at times, been marked by chaos and controversy. 

But members of Trump's family, including his daughter Ivanka and son-in-law Jared Kushner, are said to have significant influence in the Trump White House and chime in on the president's deliberations and decisions. 

The new chief of staff was reportedly behind the shocking firing of White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci on Monday, less than two weeks after the Wall Street financier took office.

Scaramucci came under fire last week after delivering a profanity-laced tirade about former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and others during an interview with The New Yorker's Ryan Lizza.
