Washington, April 9: US President Dold Trump has slammed a Washington Post report on John Kelly’s struggles in the administration and denied that the White House chief of staff was suffering from diminished credibility and influence.
The Washington Post on Saturday reported that Trump has started to bypass Kelly, who has sought to control access to the President in a variety of ways. The Post report also said that Kelly threatened to resign in a heated argument with Trump where he attempted to dissuade the President from firing former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. But Kelly has told allies that he believes it is his duty to help implement the President’s agenda. (IANS)
