Sources within the Trump administration claim that he commander-in-chief still regularly calls Bannon when chief of staff John F. Kelly is out of the office

Trump Reportedly Circumvents Kelly By Calling Friends On Personal Cell Phone

Kelly's move from homeland security secretary to White House chief of staff was part of a push to enact order in the West Wing, where Trump was accustomed to accepting spontaneous, freewheeling meetings and phone calls. Sources told The Times that Trump once chewed out Kelly so severely that the general reported "he had never been spoken to like that during 35 years of serving his country", and wouldn't accept such treatment in future.

Noor Al-Sibai is a news writer for Bustle whose work has appeared in Everyday Feminism and in various local publications around North Carolina. Under Kelly's management, Trump "now has time to think", as he's said repeatedly to one of his senior aides who spoke to the times.

Tillerson has also clashed with Trump on issues such as Saudi Arabia's blockade of Qatar and the deployment of troops to Afghanistan.

Manigault earned a reputation within the White House for this kind of stuff, and, to many of her colleagues, it quickly overshadowed her comms duties and pro-Trump outreach to African-American audiences.

"General John Kelly is doing a great job as Chief of Staff", Trump said Friday on Twitter.

Kelly is looking to "put a dent" in Omarosa's influence and has been limiting her access to the president.

Good lord! Talk about palace, er, White House intrigue.

Kelly also has physically expressed frustrations with his boss. Kelly has typically listened in on the president's calls, according to the Times. With Schiller gone, the number of original Trumpers left will be awfully small, just Hope Hicks, Dan Scavino, and the children. According to the latest Times report, coauthored by Trump monitor nonpareil Maggie Haberman, Kelly has tried to take a light touch with the President, but has not been able to entirely maintain Trump's enthusiasm for him.

The conventional wisdom, though, is that Kelly's more likely to quit than be fired.

Kelly bore the brunt of his rage, they said. He has executive experience, relationships with people on the Hill, and Trump's known him for years and sees him as a loyalist thanks to his early endorsement in the primaries. Trump is also considering rolling back deportation protections for young people brought to the US illegally as children, a step he previously intimated to top advisers that he would rather avoid.
