Trump Disputes ‘Fake News’ Reports on Difficulties of Replacing John Kelly: ‘Please Report News Correctly’
And now for something completely unexpected…Just kidding, Donald Trump is attacking the “fake news” again.
Fake News has it purposely wrong. Many, over ten, are vying for and wanting the White House Chief of Staff position. Why wouldn’t someone want one of the truly great and meaningful jobs in Washington. Please report news correctly. Thank you!

Let’s break this down, shall we?
Ever since the president confirmed that John Kelly is on his way out of the administration, there’s been a great deal of intrigue over who will take Kelly’s place as White House Chief of Staff. Numerous articles have been written on the matter, and some of the most recent reports and news developments suggest that Trump is having a hard time finding someone to fill the position.
Nick Ayers, the Chief of Staff for Vice President Mike Pence, was thought to be one of likely candidates for replacing Kelly, but apparently he’s leaving the administration too. Even though there’s a list of other viable possibilities, Trump is reportedly angry about having to go through this process again, especially since candidates aren’t exactly lining up.
