According to author Gabriel Sherman’s new report, Ivanka Trump has been assigned the difficult task of replacing Donald Trump’s Chief of Staff, John Kelly if Trump decides to fire him.
Sherman wrote Kelly “may finally have gone past the point of no return,” when he told lawmakers the president has “evolved” on the idea of a border wall.
After Kelly’s comments, Trump reportedly said, “I’ve got another nut job here who thinks he’s running things.”
“Kelly’s departure likely isn’t imminent,” sources told Sherman. “Trump can also hardly afford another high-level staff departure, which would trigger days of negative news cycles. ‘This could be like [Jeff] Sessions,” one of the Republicans explained, referring to Trump’s festering frustration about not being able to replace his attorney general.'”
Sherman reported that someone who has spoken with Ivanka said, she “is the most worried about it. She’s trying to figure who replaces Kelly.”
One source told Sherman ” Kelly wants to stay longer than Reince [Priebus].”
“The more Kelly plays up that he’s being the adult in the room—that it’s basically combat duty and he’s serving the country—that kind of thing drives Trump nuts,” one Republican told Sherman.
The report also included that certain White House staffers believe Kelly’s military style isn’t a good fit, and they’re sick of Kelly’s constant “rectitude,” so they’ve started calling him “The Church Lady.”
