WH Chief of Staff John Kelly: My Job Is Not to Control The President

Written by  Melanie Arter

(CNSNews.com) - White House Chief of Staff John Kelly said Thursday that his job is not to control the president, it’s to control the flow of information to the president to enable him to make the best decisions.

During the White House press briefing, Kelly was asked if the president’s tweets catch him by surprise. He said he reads in newspapers about his “failure” to control the president and his tweeting,” but that’s not his job. “As far as the tweets go, it’s funny, I read in the paper that I’ve been a failure at controlling the president, a failure at controlling his tweeting and all that. Again, I was not sent in -- I was not brought to this job to control anything but the flow of information to our president so that he can make the best decisions,” Kelly said. “I have found that Mr. Trump from the day I met him does not-- he’s a decisive guy. He’s a very thoughtful man I should say. He takes information in from every avenue he can receive it,” the chief of staff said. Kelly said he does not restrict anyone from seeing the president and that he should not be judged based on what others think he should be doing as chief of staff.
