Former White House Chief of Staff John Kelly calls President Donald Trump ''the most flawed person'' he’s ever known in a CNN special scheduled to air Sunday in which several former presidential aides deride Trump.

"The depths of his dishonesty is just astounding to me,'' Kelly says in "The Insiders: A Warning from Former Trump Officials," CNN said. ''The dishonesty, the transactional nature of every relationship, though it's more pathetic than anything else. He is the most flawed person I have ever met in my life."

The criticism by Kelly, a retired Marine Corps general, is not new, having blasted Trump for his response to violent protests and riots in Washington this past summer, among other things.

Kelly, who previously served as secretary of Homeland Security, lasted less than a year and a half as chief of staff, leaving the post in December 2018 after reportedly having clashed with First Lady Melania Trump, then-National Security Adviser John Bolton and his deputy Mira Ricardel.

He also clashed with White House personnel during his time at Homeland Security, The Wall Street Journal reported.

The animosity is mutual with Trump, who has blasted Kelly.

"When I terminated John Kelly, which I couldn't do fast enough, he knew full well that he was way over his head," Trump posted to Twitter in February. "Being Chief of Staff just wasn't for him. He came in with a bang, went out with a whimper, but like so many X's, he misses the action & just can't keep his mouth shut."
