Kelly resigned after almost two years in the administration
Former White House chief of staff John Kelly said members of President Donald Trump’s family serving on the White House staff needed to be “dealt with” as he sought to implement a more orderly process in the West Wing.
Kelly’s remarks pointed to his long-running and low-simmering frustration with the role of the president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, and her husband, Jared Kushner, in the White House. The Washington Post previously reported that clashes between the president’s family members and senior advisers came so frequently that the relationship became uncomfortable.
In the interview, Kelly did not mention the couple by name.
Congressional Democrats are currently investigating whether Trump ordered Kelly to grant the couple security clearances despite the recommendation of career officials against doing so.
