Kelly: My Job Is Not to 'Control' Trump

Kelly: My Job Is Not to 'Control' Trump

White House chief of staff John Kelly made an unusual appearance at Thursday's daily press briefing to clear up a few things - he isn't going anywhere, he's not frustrated by President Trump's use of Twitter and he's not trying to micromanage the president. "I don't believe - and I just talked to the president - I don't believe that I'm being fired today".

Prior to joining Kelly at Homeland Security, Nielsen was president of the firm Sunesis Consulting.

"[Gen. Kelly] puts to rest an very bad lot of these rumors and this conjecture and these plain out fictions that we see every single day", she said on "The Intelligence Report".

President Donald Trump is planning to nominate Kirstjen Nielsen to succeed John Kelly as secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, Politico, Reuters and other outlets reported on Wednesday, citing unnamed sources. So unless things change, I'm not quitting, I'm not getting fired. "I look forward to working closely with the Administration and Ranking Member McCaskill to expedite the consideration of Ms. Nielsen's nomination and help make America safer and more secure".

Kingsman: The Golden Circle and American Made are duking it out to complete the top five, both on around $8.1 million. Focus Features' expansion of Judi Dench's "Victoria & Abdul" came in 8th with $4.2 million at 732 locations.

Nielsen, however, has drawn some resentment in her current White House position, as she and Kelly have tried to instil more discipline at the White House. "But I would just offer to you the advice", he added. 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. "But I listen to everybody and ultimately I will do what's right for the United States and really what's right for the world", he said, adding, "it's a problem that has to be solved".

Nielsen was Kelly's chief of staff while he was Homeland Security secretary.

Kelly's extraordinary statements are the latest examples of Trump administration officials professing their loyalty publicly Trump, refuting reports that suggest problems in the chaotic administration. The chief of staff did so with a smile and a salute.
