White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has discarded reports of him getting fired or filing resignation. While denying rumours of being ousted Kelly made an unusual appearance before the reporters on Thursday and said he is not quitting today.”Although I read it all the time pretty consistently, I’m not quitting today,” Kelly was quoted as saying. The White House Chief of Staff said that he doesn’t believe in these rumours and revealed that he met President Donald Trump prior to this press meet. Kelly added that his position of being the White House Chief of Staff is the hardest job he has ever had and it is the most important job.

 “I don’t believe – and I just talked to the President – I don’t think I’m being fired today. And I’m not so frustrated in this job that I’m thinking of leaving. I will tell you this is the hardest job I’ve ever had, this is in my view the most important job I’ve had,” Kelly reckoned. “I’m not quitting, I’m not getting fired, and I don’t think they’ll fire anyone tomorrow,” said Kelly, who is known for maintaining a low-key profile at the White House. Criticising the media and rubbishing the reports which turned out to be absolutely fake, Kelly while taking a dig at the media urged the reporters to develop better sources.   

“It’s astounding to me how much is misreported. I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you’re operating off of contacts and leaks, whatever you have. But I offer to you the advice that, maybe, develop better sources,” Kelly said. After calling his job of being the White House Chief of Staff the most important and hardest he ever had, Kelly also mentioned his glory days when he was enlisted Marine and said called it as his best job ever.The former Secretary of Homeland Security also gave an honourable mention to President Donald Trump where he described him as a ‘decisive’ and a ‘very thoughtful’ man.
