Ron Reagan Jr.: Trump is a ‘prime agent of chaos’ beyond the control of Chief of Staff Kelly
President Donald Trump’s new chief of staff, Gen. John Kelly, was reportedly brought on to clean house — but what if the person he needs to rein in is the president?
Ron Reagan, Jr., son of former President Ronald Reagan, raised that provocative question on MSNBC Tuesday when host Chris Matthews asked him whether he thinks Kelly will be able to control Trump’s family members like son-in-law Jared Kushner and daughter Ivanka.
“Jared Kushner isn’t exactly Robert Kennedy,” Reagan said. “You wonder why these people with no relevant experience are where they are with security clearances and this is one of the challenges that John Kelly is going to face here.”
Despite becoming “the boss of the White House,” however, Reagan said that the Trump kids may be the least of the new chief of staff’s problems.
“All things are supposed to flow through the chief of staff, John Kelly now,” he continued, “but he’s got a boss too– the president. His biggest problem is not so much Ivanka and Jared, although they are an issue. His biggest problem is Donald Trump himself, who is the prime agent of chaos in this White House. How is he going to control him?”
