Chief of Staff John Kelly: I’m Not Quitting Today, Don’t Think I’m Being Fired, Not Thinking Of Leaving

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly held his first news conference with reporters Thursday in the briefing room. Kelly said he is not quitting, he’s not being fired nor is he thinking of leaving his position as the president’s chief of staff.

Kelly also said one of his “frustrations” is the media and suggested they perhaps “develop some better sources” for their stories that include anonymous staffers. The chief of staff also said Trump’s opponents seem to grandstand and enjoy themselves.

CHIEF OF STAFF JOHN KELLY: I would have to tell you that coming into the job as chief of staff, I had decided to not do too much with the press until I got my feet on the ground and figured out what base I was on on any given day. Prior to this, when I was at DHS and certainly as a Marine general officer, I interacted with the press a great deal. But coming into this job, I really needed to get to — get to know the lay of the land.

I have done, I think, three off-the-records, the first one of which was of course violated. But thank you for all of you that didn’t violate the trust from that — those off-the-record — off-the- record periods.

I would just offer to you that although I read it all the time pretty consistently, I’m not quitting today.

(LAUGHTER)

I don’t believe — and I just talked to the president, I don’t think I’m being fired today.

(LAUGHTER)

And I am not so frustrated in this job that I’m thinking of leaving.

I would tell you, this is the hardest job I’ve ever had. This is, in my view, the most important job I ever had.
