Trump Slams ‘Dishonest Media’ For Reports About John Kelly Being Fired: ‘The Story is Totally Made Up!’

President Trump took to Twitter on Tuesday night to debunk reports that he was firing his White House Chief-of-Staff John Kelly.

“The Fake News is at it again,” Trump began, “this time trying to hurt one of the finest people I know, General John Kelly, by saying he will soon be….. …fired. This story is totally made up by the dishonest media.”

He went on to say that Kelly is doing a “FANTASTIC job” for him and for the country.

It is unclear if Trump was referring to a Vanity Fair report yesterday suggested there was a “widening rift” between him and Kelly.
