MODERATING FORCE

Report: John Kelly Said He Wants to Admit Zero Refugees

White House chief of staff John Kelly reportedly suggested during a debate over how many refugees should be allowed into the U.S. that the country should admit zero. The New York Times reports that the incident is an example of how Kelly, despite being billed as a moderating force inside the White House, has “made clear that he is more aligned with President Trump than anticipated.” Kelly reportedly shares many of the same hardline views as the president on immigration and national security issues.
