White House Hits Back At John Kelly: He Was “Totally Unequipped To Handle The Genius” Of The President

The Washington Post reports:

John Kelly, former chief of staff to President Trump, said Saturday he warned the president before he left the White House not to replace him with a “yes man” because it would lead to Trump’s impeachment.

The White House on Saturday released a statement from Trump denying that Kelly ever delivered that warning, in his first public rift with a former chief of staff.

“John Kelly never said that, he never said anything like that. If he would have said that I would have thrown him out of the office,” Trump said.

“He just wants to come back into the action like everybody else does.” White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham added, “I worked with John Kelly, and he was totally unequipped to handle the genius of our great President.”
