The press had previously reported that the chief of staff was unhappy in his position.
At the White House press briefing on Thursday, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly rejected press reports that he was unhappy in his post and considering leaving.
Kelly first took a shot at the press, pointing out that he had done off-the-record sessions, and a reporter had violated information given during those sessions.
Then he addressed rumors that he would soon be departing his post due to frustration.
“I’m not quitting today. I don’t believe, and I just talked to the president, I don’t think I’m being fired today,” Kelly said. “I’m not so frustrated in this job that I’m thinking of leaving.”
The chief of staff added that the position was “the hardest job I’ve ever had.”
One reporter asked Kelly to clarify his remarks on frustration, to which he denied that he was frustrated at all.
