The White House on Saturday pushed back on former White House chief of staff John Kelly’s recent statement saying he told Trump not to hire a chief of staff who was a “yes man” in order to avoid impeachment.

President Trump denied that Kelly ever made that statement, according to CNN.  

“He never said anything like that. If he would have said that I would have thrown him out of the office. He just wants to come back into the action like everybody else does,” he added. 

White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham also criticized Kelly in a statement to CNN. 

“I worked with John Kelly, and he was totally unequipped to handle the genius of our great President,” she said. 

Kelly, speaking at a Washington Examiner political conference Saturday said he warned Trump that he could be impeached if he didn’t hire a chief of staff who would push back against bad impulses.


Kelly also criticized Trump’s decision to withdraw U.S. troops from Syria, calling the move a “catastrophically bad idea.”
