Trump Reportedly Circumvents Kelly By Calling Friends On Personal Cell Phone

Trump Reportedly Circumvents Kelly By Calling Friends On Personal Cell Phone

Yet in public, Trump has appeared supportive of Kelly and frequently praises him. Kelly is keeping a close eye on the information that passes across Trump's desk.

After Trump reportedly laid into Kelly, the Times wrote Kelly "later told other White House staff members that he had never been spoken to like that during 35 years of serving his country".

When Kelly was appointed, observers predicted that success in the role could breed resentment in Trump.

But he's not a miracle worker.

A number of sources from inside the administration reported tension between the president and Kelly to the Times, evidenced by a few incidents like last month's rally in Arizona, where Trump was visibly irritated by Kelly's insistence that the president keep talk of politics during the rally to a minimum.

Yet Trump has privately begun flouting these rules, according to the Post, frequently calling advisers and confidants - including former chief strategist Steve Bannon - from his personal phone. The president even recently complained that Breitbart and The Daily Caller, both networks that are loyal to him, have been noticeably absent from his daily printouts. If Trump goes full loyalist and brings in someone like Corey Lewandowski, congressional Republicans will scoff that Corey's a yes-man and a clown. She first came to national attention on the very first season of Trump's "The Apprentice", back in 2004.

Tillerson has also clashed with Trump on issues such as Saudi Arabia's blockade of Qatar and the deployment of troops to Afghanistan.

According to White House staffers, the President completely lost it while addressing Kelly, while Kelly "reacted calmly".

The sources stressed that Schiller's reasoning was primarily financial, but one source said Schiller has also grown frustrated with the new system installed by White House chief of staff John Kelly aimed at restricting access to the President. Wrote the website: "The stories Manigault would present to Trump, often on a phone or printed out, would often enrage the president, and resulted in him spending at least the rest of the day fuming about it". Schiller has told people close to him that he will be leaving the White House at the end of September.

The White House has asked Congress for an initial $7.9 billion in emergency aid, a request expected to win quick approval.
