White House chief of staff: 'I'm not quitting today'

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly  walks with Kirstjen Nielsen the chief of staff at the Department of Homeland Security on the So

US President Donald Trump announced that he was nominated for Ministry of Homeland Security, Kirstjen Nielsen (45), a deputy director of Special pen manager, John Kelly. "I don't believe - and I just talked to the president - I don't think I'm being fired today".

"I think perhaps I feel stronger and tougher on that subject than other people", Trump said in the Oval Office. "But when I read in the morning, I read - I won't tell you what I read, but when I watch TV in the morning, it's astounding to me how much is misreported".

Reports on his imminent departure are greatly exaggerated, the retired general says. One showed him staring at the floor at a press conference in NY as Trump rambled about "both sides" being to blame for violence at a white supremacist march in Charlottesville, Virginia.

Trump has hinted at a preference for military options, although a strike on North Korea could leave close USA ally South Korea vulnerable to North Korean military retaliation.

"All of you. Not all of you, but many of you", Kelly replied to one journalist during the surprise appearance.

"I have found that Mr. Trump, from the day I met him, he is a decisive guy, he is a very thoughtful man", Kelly added.

"One of his frustrations is you". I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you are operating off of contacts, leaks, whatever you call them, but I would just offer to you the advice, I would say, maybe develop some better sources.

The president has reportedly bristled at the more structured flow of information to the president, and some on the far-right have lamented that Kelly has seemingly restricted some of Trump's access to right-leaning media outlets, thought Trump is still a regular viewer of Fox News' opinion programs.

Kelly suggested reporters develop better sources at the White House for their stories.

He said there's already "great concern" about Americans who live in Guam. "This is really, really hard work - running the United States of America".

Later on Thursday, announcing his nomination of Kirstjen Nielsen for homeland security secretary in the east room, Trump lavished praise on Kelly and asked him to stand.
