White House Chief of Staff Kelly dismisses quitting rumors”

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly said Thursday that his job is not to "control" President Donald Trump, attempting to undercut a common media talking point. "I don't think I'm being fired today, and I'm not so frustrated in this job that I'm thinking of leaving".

"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. The president did not identify the source of the referenced reports, though stories from multiple news organizations earlier in the week described the relationship between Trump and Kelly as on tenuous footing.

There have been reports that Kelly is unhappy in the job as Trump's legislative agenda stalls and the president continues to picks fights with everyone from senators to National Football League players to a mayor in hurricate-hit Puerto Rico. That was the best job I ever had had.

"One of his frustrations is you".

"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.

And while the president has not said anything critical of Kelly, and in fact, has had nothing but praise for the retired Marine Corps general, reports have circulated that tensions between the two have been brewing.

Kelly also pushed back on the perception that the president strongly desires to increase America's nuclear arsenal. "This is, in my view, the most important job I've ever had". "Not all of you, but many of you". "I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you are operating off of contacts, leaks, whatever you call them, but I will just offer to you the advice, I'd say maybe develop some better sources".

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. "Right now, there is great concern about a lot of Americans that live in Guam". He previously served just over six months as Secretary of Homeland Security.

On Thursday, Kelly took to the briefing room lectern, with surprising ease, and spoke with journalists in an apparent effort to dispel the recent negative reporting and chatter about him and his management of the West Wing.
