WaPo: John Kelly's influence diminishing in White House

WaPo: John Kelly's influence diminishing in White House

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly reportedly threatened to resign in late March, political website Axios reported on Saturday, adding to speculation of a rift between he and President Donald Trump. Earlier this week, a report came out that the president was sick of being "told no" by Kelly and just made a decision to stop telling his chief of staff anything, leaving Kelly to find out about Trump's surprise announcements like everyone else.

For the full story, go here.

A senior administration official told Axios that calling it a threat was "probably too strong, it was more venting frustration". Some thought that meant he was quitting, according to The Post, while others thought that meant he was just going home early. Swan also noted that Kelly has threatened to quit a couple of times since taking over the CoS post.

There are few things worse than being an impotent chief of staff, said Leon Panetta, who held that position under Bill Clinton.

"The Washington Post is far more fiction than fact".

Story after story consists of crap - like a poorly written novel than good reporting.

President Trump's tweet today echoes similar statements made Friday morning on a New York City radio show, the Bernie & Sid Show. "Story on John Kelly isn't true, just another hit job!".

The Post claims General Kelly is growing increasingly frustrated with President Trump and subsequently has lost influence inside the White House.

Last month, Kelly even attempted to dispel rumors that he was on the outs with the President, telling aides "I'm in", while Trump told advisers that his chief of staff was "100% safe". It's unclear why Kelly was so frustrated, but the Post reports that he said, "I'm out of here, guys".
