Report: President Trump trying to 'impress' new chief of staff John Kelly

Newly appointed Chief of Staff General John Kelly appears to be giving the White House the military treatment.

According to Axios, the Marine has turned President Trump's open door policy of staffers wandering into the Oval into a place of order and regime.

Mike Allen writes, "even POTUS appears to be trying to impress his four-star handler, picking up his game by acting sharper in meetings and even rattling off stats."

Kelly is also reportedly more involved in moderating the now succinct meetings than his predecessor Reince Priebus was during his tenure.

Even Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner appear to be showing the general respect.

Kelly takes charge of what has been a turbulent and dysfunctional white house, provoking the abrupt departure of White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

But despite Trump's attempts to button up for Kelly, he's still tweeting his familiar attacks just the same.
