Trump chief of staff John Kelly: 'I'm not quitting, I'm not getting fired'
White House chief of staff John Kelly, making a rare appearance before reporters Thursday, rejected reports that he would soon be departing the White House.
"A state that has developed a pretty good ICBM (missile) capability and is developing a pretty good nuclear re-entry vehicle, I would believe ... that that state simply can not have the ability to reach the homeland", Kelly said. Another caught Kelly with his head in his hands during the president's address to the United Nations general assembly.
Kelly also said he doesn't believe Trump's combative use of Twitter threatens his agenda, saying, "The president has a right to defend himself".
Kelly and Trump have been at odds, reports have said, over restructuring in the West Wing.
"I have found that Mr. Trump, from the day I met him, he is a decisive guy, he is a very thoughtful man", Kelly added.
Kellyanne Conway, counselor to President Trump, told FOX Business' Trish Regan that there's much frustration with thinly sourced reports by non-credible sources.
The president has reportedly bristled at the more structured flow of information to the president, and some on the far-right have lamented that Kelly has seemingly restricted some of Trump's access to right-leaning media outlets, thought Trump is still a regular viewer of Fox News' opinion programs.
Congress has also been frustrating to the president, Kelly added. "Not all of you, but many of you".
'I would offer, though, it is not the best job I've ever had.
When asked by one reporter about how he phrased his "not so frustrated" comment and if he felt foiled in any way, the chief of staff continued with a response similar to his prior remarks. Kelly said Americans should be "concerned" about North Korea since it has developed an intercontinental ballistic missile capability and is developing a vehicle that would allow a missile to survive re-entry into the earth's atmosphere. "This is really, really hard work - running the United States of America". Kelly was elevated to the post from homeland security secretary in July. The chief of staff did so with a smile and a salute.
