Since being named White House chief of staff last month, John Kelly has had the most significant effect on bringing regimen and discipline to President Donald Trump than any of his previous aides and associates, The New York Times reported Friday.

Kelly, 67, the former Marine general who headed the Department of Homeland Security before succeeding Reince Priebus, "has regimented, as no one has ever done before, the flow of paper, people and information inundating an omnivorous and undisciplined Mr. Trump."

The Times cited "interviews with a dozen current and former Trump aides and associates" in its report.

It noted that President Trump himself "has marveled at the installation of management controls that would have been considered routine in any other White House."

"I now have time to think," the president has "repeatedly" told a senior aide in the five weeks since Kelly has assumed his new role.

For instance, Kelly usually listens in on telephone calls President Trump has with several close outside associates, including former chief strategist Steve Bannon, whom Trump ousted last month, according to the report.

In addition, Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter, now makes "a point of giving Mr. Kelly a heads-up if she is going to talk to the president about policy or politics," one of her friends told the Times.

Kelly also supported Bannon's ouster, as well as those of deputy assistant Sebastian Gorka and short-lived communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

However, the question remains how long will Kelly will remain in the job, especially since "he is fully aware of the president's volcanic resentment about being managed," the Times reported.

Kelly has given no indication "that he intends to leave anytime soon," according to the Times, adding that he has only told associates that "he is committed to stabilizing the staff in the White House."
