Julie Hirschfeld Davis, Sheryl Gay Stolberg, and Thomas Kaplan — The New York Times:
President Trump’s chief of staff privately told a group of Democratic lawmakers on Wednesday that Mr. Trump had not been “fully informed” when promising voters a wall along the Mexican border last year, and said that he had persuaded the president it was not necessary.
Apparently not privately enough.
Maybe this is Gen. Kelly’s way out of the Trump White House. Revealing Mr. Trump’s campaign promise of a border wall paid for by Mexico as uninformed would likely be seen as disloyalty by Trump. We’ve seen where that goes.
If you read or hear negative comments from Trump about his chief of staff in the coming days, you’ll know this was Kelly’s goal all along.
