President Donald Trump asked John Kelly to stay on as White House Chief of Staff through 2020, multiple sources told Fox News on Tuesday. A source independently confirmed the president’s request — which was first reported by John Roberts — to People’s Pundit Daily (PPD).

According to the independent source, General Kelly told staffers about the conversation on Monday.

General John Kelly was first nominated and confirmed to serve as the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). However, President Trump replaced Reince Priebus with General Kelly as White House Chief of Staff in July 2017.

Under Mr. Priebus, the White House staff was unruly and chaotic, leaking whatever information (true or not) to the press to embarrass the president. Gen. Kelly came in running a very tight ship, demanding the resignation of Anthony Scaramucci for lacking discipline.

The average tenure of a White House Chief of Staff is roughly 18 months. The president’s request comes on his one-year anniversary.

General Kelly does not wield the power or influence with the president he once did.
