Stories have emanated from the White House of a president bristling under a more disciplined and authoritative chief of staff, himself reportedly exasperated by Trump's controversial ad lib comments in speeches and on Twitter that upended attempts to carefully set policy.
"I think I speak for the administration, that that state can simply not have the ability to reach the homeland", Kelly said.
"Right now we think the threat is manageable but over time if it grows beyond where it is today, well, let's hope that diplomacy works", said Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general. Another caught Kelly with his head in his hands during the president's address to the United Nations general assembly.
Tillerson meet; IQ, moron comments linger
Trump added in the Forbes interview that Tillerson was "wasting his time" when Tillerson appeared to be reopening talks with North Korea.
Asked what the president's biggest frustration was, Kelly replied, "One of his frustrations is you".
On Tuesday, Trump tweeted praise for Kelly, writing that "The Chief is doing a FANTASTIC job" and disputing reports that he would be fired. Vanity Fair reported Wednesday that Kelly was "miserable in his job and is remaining out of a sense of duty to keep Trump from making some sort of disastrous decision".

White House Chief of Staff John Kelly walks on the tarmac as he arrives Tuesday, Aug. 22, 2017, in Phoenix. I will give you the benefit of the doubt that you are operating off of contacts, leaks, whatever you call them, but I would just offer to you the advice, I would say, maybe develop some better sources. "This is, in my view, the most important job I've ever had". Kelly said Americans should be "concerned" about North Korea since it has developed an intercontinental ballistic missile capability and is developing a vehicle that would allow a missile to survive re-entry into the earth's atmosphere. He previously served just over six months as Secretary of Homeland Security.
Congress has also been frustrating to the president, Kelly added.
On Thursday, Kelly took to the briefing room lectern, with surprising ease, and spoke with journalists in an apparent effort to dispel the recent negative reporting and chatter about him and his management of the West Wing.
