Despite frequently refuting reports that his time at the White House was coming to an end, Chief of Staff John Kelly may have finally crossed someonE who will seal his fate: First Lady Melania Trump.

According to a new report from NBC News, Kelly is among the top administration officials expected to be ousted soon in the aftermath of the 2018 midterm elections, along with his protege Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. While President Donald Trump's differences with Nielsen reportedly center around her approach to border policy, it seems some of Kelly's own biggest problems are personal.

The first lady reportedly went directly to the president with some of her complaints. According to the report, Kelly did not treat the first lady's staff as equal to his own staffers, delaying their requests for promotions. The report also found that he got on the first lady's "wrong side" with regard to her requests for travel plans.

"I don't need this sh*t," the president reportedly told Kelly about the complaints from his wife, which made him "furious."

Trump has already fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions after the midterms. In addition to Kelly and Nielsen, reports suggest that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke is also likely to be ousted in the near future.
