Donald Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner is on the short-list of potential candidates for the president's next chief of staff, us media said on Thursday.

The chair of the conservative House Freedom Caucus was on an initial list of four people Trump was considering to replace John Kelly after his first choice, Nick Ayers, pulled himself out of the running Sunday.

One of the sources, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Kushner is now not inclined to pursue the position.

Press secretary Sarah Sanders says Trump spoke Wednesday with the North Carolina Republican.

"He has done a tremendous job on a number of fronts, whether it was on trade or what we've seen play out over the last week on criminal justice reform".

New York Times White House reporter Maggie Haberman said Kushner pursuing the chief of staff job would be out of character.
