White House Chief of Staff John Kelly done a singular coming at the press lectern on Thursday to assure two things: He’s not leaving anytime shortly — and he’s had better jobs than this one.
“I would just offer to you that, nonetheless we review it all the time flattering consistently, I’m not quitting today,” the retired ubiquitous and former Homeland Security secretary told reporters. “I’m not so undone in this pursuit that I’m meditative of leaving … unless things change, I’m not quitting, I’m not getting fired and we don’t consider I’ll fire anyone tomorrow.”
Even so, Kelly certified using Trump’s staff is frequency his dream job.
“I will tell you this is the hardest pursuit I’ve ever had. This is in my perspective the many critical pursuit I’ve ever had. we would offer, though, it is not the best pursuit I’ve ever had. The best pursuit we ever had, as I’ve pronounced many times, is when we was an enlisted Marine sergeant infantryman.”
Kelly’s comments came after press rumors swirled in the past week that he would be the next high-profile push-out from President Trump’s White House.
Trump had formerly denied he was formulation to cut Kelly, who took the pursuit in Jul to help bring sequence in the White House after Trump’s pell-mell first months.
Trump tweeted progressing this week that rumors of Kelly’s banishment were “totally done up by the prejudiced media,” and he pronounced his arch of staff “is doing a FANTASTIC pursuit for me and, some-more importantly, for the USA!”
Kelly took the surprising step of doing the press lecture himself, holding the place of Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, and his mild-mannered coming gave a singular glimpse into his attribute with Trump, which has been a theme of conjecture and mindfulness in the media.

Kelly denied that he struggles to control Trump, or that Trump’s tweets make it harder for him to do his job.
He pronounced his biggest disappointment on the pursuit is press coverage of the administration — but he rubbed it some-more pleasantly than his boss does.
“My only frustration, with all due honour to everybody in the room, is when we come to work in the morning and review about things we allegedly pronounced or things that Mr. Trump allegedly said, or people who are going to be fired or whatever,” Kelly said.
“It’s just not true. That’s my frustration. And we meant no disregard to you.”
