White House Aides Defend Chief Of Staff John Kelly, Insist Trump Is Not Looking For Replacements


Senior White House aides insisted Sunday that President Donald Trump retains confidence in Chief of Staff John Kelly in the midst of staff turmoil and said the president is not looking to replace the retired four-star general hired six months ago with a mandate to corral chaos.

“I spoke with the president last night about this very issue, and he wanted me to re-emphasize to everyone, including this morning, that he has full confidence in his current Chief of Staff General John Kelly and that he is not actively looking for replacements,” White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said in an interview on ABC’s “This Week.”
