White House chief of staff John Kelly has developed a strategy to keep President Donald Trump from seeking outside advice while staying at Mar-a-Lago, Vanity Fair reports.

Trump frequently visits his Palm Beach resort, where he entertains friends and guests, sometimes asking their advice on presidential matters. In February, The Washington Post reported that Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe discussed their response to a North Korean missile test while dining on the terrace.

Now Kelly, who has been "fighting a lot" with Trump, plans to keep the president "out of the dining room," according to unnamed sources of Vanity Fair's, who mention that Kelly "doesn't love this job." They also note that Trump expressed anger about Kelly's decision to reassign a trade adviser to report to National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn without Trump's approval.

Trump told reporters Saturday that Kelly "loves" his job, and will stay in it for "the entire seven remaining years."

"John Kelly is one of the best people I've ever worked with. He's doing an incredible job," Trump said. "And he told me for the last two months, he loves it more than anything he's ever done. He's a military man, but he loves doing this, which is chief of staff, more than anything he's ever done."

"He's doing a great job. He will be here, in my opinion, for the entire seven remaining years."
