Many people in the media and throughout DC are giving major credit to the new chief of staff for the impact he is having at the White House and on President Trump.
In just one week General Kelly appears to be turning the president into a gentler, more kinder tweeter.
Ever since Kelly took over for Reince Priebus, the president has been tweeting more about the positive things his administration is accomplishing and less about fake news and Russia.
His focus on Wall Street’s bull run, new jobs being created, new investments in American manufacturing, and improving the nation’s immigration system are a welcomed new approach by many conservatives, including the CEO of DML NEWS, Dennis Michael Lynch. “This is the president I voted for,” said DML about Trump’s positive tweets earlier in the week.
Not convinced of General Kelly’s impact?
Consider the flow of criticism and public humiliation the president had showered over the head of Attorney General Jeff Sessions during the month of July. For example, he launched tweets like this one: “So why aren’t the Committees and investigators, and of course our beleaguered A.G., looking into Crooked Hillarys crimes & Russia relations?”
In addition to the tweets, the president told The New York Times he was disappointed with Sessions and would not have hired him to run the DOJ had he known Sessions would recuse himself from the Russia investigation.
Then there was the comment from the former communications director and White House mouthpiece, Anthony Scaramucci. The free-speaking Scaramucci told radio show host Hugh Hewitt that he thought the president wanted Sessions to resign. Trump never downplayed or denied the comment from Scaramucci as being false.
Sessions told Fox News last week that he was hurt by the president’s remarks, but that he would not resign from the DOJ. He said he was staying on for as long as the president would have him lead the Justice Department.
It appears the attacks on Sessions have come to a sudden halt.
Not only did General Kelly tell Jeff Sessions his job was safe earlier in the week, but President Trump put out a favorable tweet about Sessions on Saturday evening.
In his tweet published Saturday evening, President Donald J. Trump wrote: “After many years of LEAKS going on in Washington, it is great to see the A.G. taking action! For National Security, the tougher the better!”

The tweet comes on the heels of Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ announcement Friday morning about the DOJ’s commitment to crackdown on the people within the Trump administration who are leaking intelligence information to the press.
“One of the things we are doing is reviewing policies affecting media subpoenas,” Sessions told reporters as he announced administration efforts to battle what he called a “staggering number of leaks undermining the ability of our government to protect this country.”
“We respect the important role that the press plays and will give them respect, but it is not unlimited,” the nation’s top law official said.
It appears Trump and Sessions are now on the same page. General Kelly deserves a lot of the credit.
