Former Trump chief of staff John Kelly spoke at an event at Duke University Wednesday night, and according to NBC News, he rebuked his former boss on a few different issues.

NBC noted that “on the administration’s handling of children at the southern border, [Kelly] was critical [of Trump], though he blamed then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions for catching the White House by surprise with the adoption of a ‘zero tolerance’ policy.”
