Chief of Staff, John Kelly defends Trump, slams democrats rep over untrue allegations

In the wake of criticisms and allegations surrounding president Trump’s interactions with “Gold Star” family members, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly has lashed out at Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-Fla.) on Thursday, saying he was “stunned” by her negative description of President Trump’s call to the wife of a U.S. soldier killed in Niger.

Speaking to reporters at the White House, Kelly said, “I was stunned when I came to work yesterday morning,” adding that he was “broken hearted” over the negative publicity surrounding the call.

Wilson had revealed on Wednesday that Trump told the widow of Army Sgt. La David Johnson that the special corps officer “knew what he was getting into.”

“I would have thought that was sacred,” Kelly who also lost a son in Afghanistan said of Trump’s conversation with Myeshia Johnson, adding that, Wilson’s statements “eroded [it] a great deal”.
