Kelly says Trump is 'distracted' by Russian Federation probe

Special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation probe is not only witch hunt, as President Trump calls it, but it's also downright awkward, White House chief of staff John Kelly says. But he later clarified that the president is "distracted".

The chief of staff has joked in the past with President Donald Trump about using a sword on the press corps at an event for the Coast Guard.

NPR has released several new portions of their interview with John Kelly, but there are a lot of people who are having a hard time taking his new remarks seriously. He said most people coming into the country without documentation "are not bad people", but they will not assimilate easily.

Kelly said the undocumented immigrants don't speak English and are "overwhelmingly rural people" from countries where "fourth-, fifth-, sixth-grade educations are kind of the norm".

"It's not that things were a disaster that first six months, but I believe they could have been better", he explained.

"John Kelly constantly makes these kinds of comments", Heileman said on "Deadline: White House" with host Nicolle Wallace.

"There's times of great frustration, mostly because of the stories I read about myself or others that I think the world of, which is just about everybody who works at the complex and wonder whether it's worth it to be subjected to that", he said.

"I wouldn't put it quite that way", Kelly said.

Though Kelly has often been cited as one of the "adults in the room" helping to control Trump's worst impulses, Heilemann's comments make it clear that in fact, Kelly shares numerous president's biggest flaws. But either way, Kelly's words matter, because it suggests strongly that he wants to stay on as chief of staff, at least for now.

Trump has pursued his crackdown on legal and illegal immigration since becoming president, promising to strengthen the nation's borders and to build a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

According to Kelly, the topic of the ongoing probe is one that world leaders are keen to discuss when they visit the president, citing the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who is facing corruption charges at home, as an example.
