White House chief of staff John Kelly has agreed to remain in his post through the 2020 presidential election, according to a White House official, quelling rumors of an imminent departure due to tensions with President Trump.
The official confirmed that Kelly told members of the White House staff on Monday that Trump had asked him to stay in the White House and that Kelly said he would abide by the request.
The news, first reported by The Wall Street Journal, comes as somewhat of a surprise given Kelly’s tumultuous tenure in the West Wing.
But all appeared well on Monday, when Kelly celebrated his first anniversary as chief of staff. Trump marked the occasion on Twitter with a photo of the two men smiling and standing beside one another.
“One year today, right? He became my chief of staff, Gen. Kelly,” Trump said minutes earlier during a ceremony in the Oval Office.
Reports that Kelly’s days were numbered have circulated in the past few weeks as he neared the one-year mark.
The chief of staff position is a notoriously difficult and exhausting post, and it is not unusual for those serving in the position to do so for a relatively short time.
