  • Reports say the US President Donald Trump is contemplating the idea of removing Chief of Staff John Kelly after being frustrated by the way the staffs handled abuse allegations against Rob Porter. A renowned news outlet has been briefed by a senior administrative officer along with three other people regarding Trump’s anger over initial statement made by Kelly supporting Porter's character and then quickly walking back on the statement the next day. In the first statement, Kelly regarded Rob Porter as a “man of true integrity and honor” after two ex-wives of Porter accused him of physical and verbal abuse. However, in the following statement the next day, Kelly said “there is no place for domestic violence in our society” but also stood by his initial statement.
