Kelly says Trump is "somewhat embarrassed" by Russia probe

When asked specifically if the Russian Federation probe was a "cloud" hanging over the Trump administration, Kelly said the investigation comes up in meetings with world leaders.

White House chief of staff John Kelly looks on before the start of a Wounded Warrior Project Soldier Ride at the White House on April 26, 2018.

Asked about the embarrassment comment, Kelly told a group of reporters later Friday that he "corrected that and said 'distracted.'" Asked if the president was distracted by the probe, Kelly said, "It's untrue, it's a witch hunt, right, and it distracts him — not too much, but it's unfair".

Kelly also kept up his tough line on immigration, even as he said people with temporary protected status who have been here for decades should get citizenship.

The retired Marine Corps general initially joined the Trump administration as Secretary of Homeland Security, but stepped up to the role of chief of staff in July to replace his ousted predecessor Reince Priebus.

NPR has released several new portions of their interview with John Kelly, but there are a lot of people who are having a hard time taking his new remarks seriously.

The probe which has already drawn guilty pleas from Trump associates and led to the indictment of his campaign chair and a raid on his personal lawyer also can lead to awkward small talk when Trump tries to sit down with a foreign leader. But they're also not people that would easily assimilate into the United States into our modern society. "They're rapists. And some, I assume, are good people", Trump added.

'They don't integrate well. They're not bad people. They're coming here for a reason. "But the laws are the laws", he went on to say.

However, he floated the idea of finding a path to citizenship for the more than 425,000 immigrants, many of whom have lived in the U.S. legally for decades under TPS.

Kelly responded, "No", when asked if he ever considered exiting the job.
