White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shot down a report on Tuesday that said President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka had been put in charge of finding a replacement for Chief of Staff John Kelly.


Vanity Fair's Gabriel Sherman reported on Monday that Ivanka Trump had been tasked with replacing Kelly after the chief of staff allegedly accused the president of being uninformed about border security.

“Ivanka is the most worried about it. She’s trying to figure who replaces Kelly,” a source told Sherman.

On Tuesday, Sanders insisted that the report was not worth reading.

"I would not use Vanity Fair for much other than a coaster," Sanders told this hosts of Fox & Friends. "I expect General Kelly to be here not just the next 3 years but the next 7 years."
