Exclusive: General John Kelly is disgusted by Donald Trump’s Behavior
Donald Trump has dragged the son of White House Chief of Staff John Kelly to the current controversy to blame Barack Obama. However according to some reliable sources General Kelly did not know that the Trump administration and the President himself will use his son for Political fights!
A Source told Washington Polity “White House chief of staff John Kelly reportedly didn’t know President Trump would publicize the fact that Kelly didn’t receive a call from former President Obama after his son died in Afghanistan.”
Earlier CNN has confirmed that Kelly told Donald Trump ahead of an interview Tuesday that Former President Barack Obama did not call him after his son died. Donald Trump then used that information during the interview, when he was asked about his claim a day earlier that past presidents, including Obama, didn’t call the families of fallen soldiers.
Donald Trump later bragged about his phone calls to fallen soldiers families to Fox News Radio Host Brian Kilmeade “To the best of my knowledge, I think I’ve called every family of somebody that’s died, and it’s the hardest call to make,”.
Trump said “As far as other representatives, I don’t know, I mean you could ask Gen. Kelly, did he get a call from Obama?”
According to CNN General Kelly, a retired Marine general, was not expecting Donald Trump to bring that up publicly,

Sanders added “I think that Gen. Kelly is disgusted by the way that this has been politicized and that the focus has become on the process and not the fact that American lives were lost,”.
“I think he’s disgusted and frustrated by that,” she said. “If he has any anger, it’s towards that.” Kelly’s son, Marine 2nd Lt. Robert Kelly, was killed in Afghanistan in 2010. A White House official confirmed to The Hill that John Kelly did not receive a call from Obama at the time.
But former President Obama hosted General Kelly at a breakfast for Gold Star families about six months after his son died
