White House chief of staff John Kelly spoke with the media Thursday and immediately squashed rumors that he is quitting his post or will be fired by President Donald Trump.

"I would just offer to you that … I am not quitting today. I don't believe, I don't think I am being fired today," Kelly said. "I'm not so frustrated in this job that I am thinking of leaving.

"I would tell you, this is the hardest job I've ever had. In my view, the most important job I've ever had. I would offer, it is not the best job I've ever had. Best job I've ever had is when I was an enlisted Marine. That was the best job I ever had had.

"I'm not quitting, I'm not getting fired. I don't think I will fire anyone tomorrow."

News reports have swirled in recent days and weeks that the West Wing is in disarray and Trump is frustrated with some of the restrictions Kelly has placed on him in terms of limiting who has access to him.

Gabriel Sherman wrote in Vanity Fair this week that Trump is unhappy with the current state of the White House and that Kelly wants to leave his job.

Kelly said Thursday the only thing that frustrates him is when he reads false news reports about the administration.

"My only frustration, with all due respect to everyone in the room, is when I come to work in the morning and read about things I allegedly said or Mr. Trump allegedly said our people who are going to be fired, it is just not true," he said.

He added that he brought "some organization" into the White House "and a smile on my face."

Kelly took over as chief of staff at the end of July after Reince Priebus departed.
