Trump Introduces John Kelly as Chief of Staff

The president said that he expected the former DHS chief to do “a spectacular job.”

President Trump introduced his new chief of staff, former Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly, to the press on Monday in the Oval Office.

“[Kelly] will do a spectacular job, I have no doubt, as chief of staff,” Trump said.

The president called Kelly’s tenure as head of DHS “record-shattering.”

“You look at the border. You look at the results we’ve had, and you look at the spirit. And with a controversial situation, there’s been very little controversy,” he added.

Responding to a reporter’s question, Trump touted the successes that his administration has scored, and expressed the belief that Kelly will help achieve more in the future.
