Trump Unleashed a 'Profanity-Laced Tirade Against' John Kelly as Rumors Swirl that His White House Days Are Numbered: Report

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly is once again reported to be on the outs with President Donald Trump.


The pair has feuded frequently in their year together, according to multiple reports, but previous predictions that Kelly was about to be fired have failed to come true. The infamously mercurial president is once against reportedly going back and forth on whether to keep his chief of staff around, and his communications staff's denials of any tension between the two lack credibility. 

Trump recently delivered a "profanity-laced tirade against his chief of staff" while talking with an ally, according to a new report from CNN's Kaitlan Collins.

But, true to his nature, Collins says he was praising Kelly to staff members the very next day.

Collins, confirming other reports, says that Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney and Vice President Mike Pence staffer Nick Ayers are under consideration as Kelly's replacement, should he be fired.

When White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters was asked about the rumors of Kelly's imminent termination, she said: "I spoke to the president who refuted this article. He said it is absolutely not true and that it is fake news.”

However, New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman pointed out that Trump has a habit of lying about coming 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."
