WASHINGTON (Reuters) - White House Chief of Staff John Kelly plans to stay in his post through the presidential election at the end of 2020, the Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday, putting to rest months of speculation that the retired military general would be the next to leave U.S. President Donald Trump's inner circle.

White House officials did not immediately respond to a request from Reuters for comment. According to the Journal, Kelly told staff on Monday that Trump had asked him to remain in the position and he agreed.
