President Donald Trump on Tuesday declared his support for Chief of Staff John Kelly, slamming "fake news" reports that his days might be numbered in the White House.

Trump took to Twitter:

CNN reported Friday that Kelly's time might be limited in light of the fallout over reported that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson threatened to resign and disparaged Trump this summer.

"Every day for John Kelly ends in 'why?'" a source close to Trump told CNN for the report. "Every day is tense."

In a meeting last week during the Tillerson controversy, Kelly told Trump "respectfully" that he needed to "pull back" from his attacks on the secretary, a source told CNN.

"Kelly suggested to the president in a nuanced way that if Secretary of State Rex Tillerson left, the retired general's own ability to do his job properly could be at risk," the cable network reported.

CNN's article cited "sources familiar with the conversation."

Kelly, 67, a retired Marine Corps general, has been credited with imposing some order in the White House since following Reince Priebus in July.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told reporters Friday that Trump "absolutely" had confidence in Kelly.
