REVEALED: Trump Went On ‘Profanity-Laced Tirade’ Against John Kelly Amid WH Ouster Reports
New reports have emerged recently stating the White House Chief of Staff John Kelly plans to leave his post this summer, causing Donald Trump to react.
According to a new report from CNN, Trump recently went on a “profanity-laced tirade against his chief of staff” while talking with an ally.
After the reports emerged of Kelly’s ouster, White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters was asked if they were true. She claimed:
“I spoke to the president who refuted this article. He said it is absolutely not true and that it is fake news.”
But how credible can Trump really be? New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman noted on Twitter that the president has a history of lying about White House terminations.
“Trump did same when Kelly wanted to fire [former national security adviser H.R.] McMaster,” she tweeted. “McMaster was gone only a few days later.”
A note on this, from pool: "Asked about a story in WSJ about CoS John Kelly’s future at the WH, Walters said: 'I spoke to the president who refuted this article. He said it is absolutely not true and that it is fake news.'" Trump did same when Kelly wanted to fire McMaster.
