John Kelly: I Would Have Served Under Hillary If She Won”

Former White House chief of staff John Kelly told an audience at Duke University on Wednesday that building a wall "from sea to shining sea" would be a "waste of money", according to The New York Times.

The retired four-star Marine Corps general - who had a hard time hiding his distaste for some of President Trump's public actions - tried to manage his boss' schedule and bring discipline to the freewheeling administration. "On Wednesday he even stressed several times the importance of a free press".

He dodged questions about Trump reportedly intervening to secure top-secret security clearances for his daughter Ivanka Trump and son-in-law, Jared Kushner. "And two, conversations with the President at that level certainly would be covered by privilege".

John Kelly listens as President Donald Trump delivers remarks at the beginning of a meeting with government cybersecurity experts in the Roosevelt Room at the White House, on January 31, 2017. "But it was the most important thing I've ever done in my life". He made similar comments in December, putting the blame on former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who announced the policy in which those found to be illegally crossing the U.S. -Mexico border would be criminally prosecuted.

"They're overwhelmingly not criminals", Kelly said of the illegal immigrants. "They're people coming up here for economic purposes..."

"When he can't think of anything to say, Trump starts chanting ["Lock her up"], and you sit there and you think, 'Does he think I was elected?'"

Further, most drug arrests happen at legal border checkpoints and not between them, where Trump's new walls would be built. "The president still says "wall" - oftentimes frankly he'll say "barrier" or 'fencing, ' now he's tended toward steel slats". He did say, however, that for eighteen months he "helped the administration, the president of the United States make the very best decisions that he could based on the information that we could provided him". "You may not like his decision, but at least he was fully informed on the impact".
