Trump rages at John Kelly for correcting his lie about Mattis: He wasn't 'in my inner-circle'

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump lashed out at his former chief of staff John Kelly, who pointed out that Trump did not fire James Mattis and the president must have been "confused" when he said he had.


In a series of three tweets, Trump suggested Kelly knew nothing because he was "not in my inner-circle." He also said Kelly had been "totally exhausted" working in the White House and "in the end just slinked away into obscurity."
