Former White House chief of staff John Kelly said members of President Donald Trump’s family serving on the White House staff needed to be “dealt with” as he sought to implement a more orderly process in the West Wing.

“They were an influence that has to be dealt with,” Kelly said Tuesday during an interview on Bloomberg Television’s “The David Rubenstein Show,” when asked whether it was complicated to have the president’s family working at the White House. “By no means do I mean Mrs. Trump -- the first lady’s a wonderful person.”
