Trump Enjoys John Kelly's New Order - And Rails Against It

Concerns have been raised within the White House about Trump's relationship with his Chief of Staff John F Kelly

Concerns have been raised within the White House about Trump's relationship with his Chief of Staff John F Kelly

Though he's still tweeting his chief of staff's praises, Trump is definitely chafing against Kelly's strict bedtimes and just-one-snack policy. As Kelly has siphoned off access to the president, Trump has become frustrated and has taken to phoning Bannon and outside advisers.

However, Omarosa is still one of the people President Trump calls for advice from time to time.

Kelly "reacted calmly, but he later told other White House staff members that he had never been spoken to like that during 35 years of serving his country", three sources close to the fight told the Times.

The Daily Beast article points out that multiple sources in and outside the Trump White House said that until recently, it was common practice for aides to walk into the Oval Office and distract and infuriate the president with pieces of negative news coverage.

Several sources say President Donald Trump's frustration with some of his aides and the progress of his presidency is growing.

"He's having a very hard time", a Trump's friend told The Washington Post. "He doesn't like how Kelly's handling him", a friend told the paper.

President Donald Trump Delivers Tax Reform Speech
Finally, the push toward tax reform offers an opportunity to establish sensible, pro-growth policy for America's energy sector. Missouri's other senator, Republican Roy Blunt, was at the private event and says he's on board with the president's plans.

Yet Trump has privately begun flouting these rules, according to the Post, frequently calling advisers and confidants - including former chief strategist Steve Bannon - from his personal phone. Trump apparently flipped out at Kelly after he and other staff tried to reign the President in following his rally in Arizona last month.

He is now the White House's director of Oval Office operations.

That mounting tension has led White House aides to wonder how much longer Kelly will remain in the role, with estimates ranging from one month to one year, despite there being no indication from Kelly himself that he plans to leave. With Kelly in the White House, those phone calls are routed through Kelly first, and Trump friends must make official appointments in order to visit the Oval Office.

For example, one White House source noted that Manigault was one of the people who would bring to President Trump's attention online articles concerning MSNBC hosts, and former Trump pals, Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski "slagging him, and his administration".

So, Kelly has been on the job for five weeks, during which time he's brought a degree of professionalism to the West Wing.
