“We don’t have any personnel changes at this time,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said Friday.
Chief of Staff General John Kelly met with reporters Friday morning to try and dispel the notion he’s resigning.
And the White House shot down stories the president will soon replace National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.
“The president said that it was not accurate, that he had no intention of changing, that they had a great working relationship and he looked forward to continue working with him,” Sanders said.
