Report: President Trump Highly Pissed at John Kelly


Things are not so peachy now when it comes to President Donald Trump and John Kelly. Hopefully these reports are false as Trump supporters want to hear directly from the POTUS and not some middleman. If these reports are true then Kelly has not been doing his job so well… that of stopping the leaks.

As Written by Allahpundit for Hot Air:

It’s one thing for Kelly to fire Mooch, back McMaster in his war with Bannon, and warn Jared and Ivanka that they need to make an appointment if they want to see the president.

But micromanaging Trump’s Twitter feed? There are some red lines even a Marine general would be wise not to cross.

A series of news reports suggesting Kelly had sought oversight of Trump’s Twitter account, including a report that claimed Kelly wanted to know in advance what the president planned to post, made their way to Trump’s desk last week, a person familiar with the situation told the Washington Examiner.

Trump “was pissed when he read Kelly wanted to control his Twitter feed,” the person said.

I can’t think of anything Kelly could do that’s more likely to enrage Trump than messing with his Twitter time, except maybe telling him to cut back on “Fox & Friends.” Once he does that, he’s out and Corey Lewandowski’s in. Corey will let the president watch as much “Fox & Friends” as he wants. Even the cooking segments.

All right, admittedly that’s a lame (and probably apocryphal) story of intra-GOP conflict. This one is more solid and much more significant:

One of Donald Trump’s most generous political benefactors is providing a six-figure donation to a super PAC devoted to unseating Sen. Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican who has been fiercely critical of the president ……..

Report: Trump “pissed” at John Kelly for wanting to control his Twitter feed – Hot Air Hot Air

As reported by Washington Examiner:

White House chief of staff John Kelly has already begun to impose order and structure on President Trump’s occasionally chaotic team, but his authority has not yet extended to one of the most unruly aspects of Trump’s presidency: @realDonaldTrump.

Trump gave Kelly unchecked hiring and firing power over White House aides below the senior counselor level when he chose the former homeland security secretary to replace outgoing chief of staff Reince Priebus late last month. Only a handful of top advisers — including Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Kellyanne Conway, and chief strategist Steve Bannon — were exempted from Kelly’s reach by requiring Trump’s permission to remove or reassign, a source close to the White House said.

But while the president has offered Kelly a level of control Priebus never managed to obtain, Trump has resisted giving his new chief of staff veto power over the spontaneous and provocative tweets that often serve as a distraction for his administration.
