NBC Panel Praises John Kelly as Chief of Staff

The panel praised the former Homeland Security Secretary for his relationship with Trump and bipartisan ties.

A panel on “Meet The Press” praised new White House Chief of Staff John Kelly on Sunday for his relationship with President Trump and bipartisan ties to members of Congress.

Anne Gearan, a Washington Post reporter, said Kelly commands respect and presence in a room.

“By all accounts, he has a good relationship with Trump, whom – they didn’t know one another before this,” Gearan said. Additionally, Kelly “has developed a good reputation” among key members of Trump’s administration.

Host Chuck Todd and Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson discussed how Kelly had sown good relationships with members of Congress.

“That’s a huge plus,” Robinson added.

The columnist also praised “the fact that this is someone who knows how to run an organization.”
