Report: John Kelly moves to control information that lands on Trump's desk

White House chief of staff John Kelly is looking to bring change to the Trump administration. 

According the multiple published reports Kelly is making sure he sees anything headed toward the president’s desk. 

The common procedure is part of the White House’s efforts to regulate the administration’s decisions and limit Trump’s public and social media outbursts. He sent out two memos to staff on Monday detailing his plans, how we wants information to get to the president and how Mr. Trump will respond.

He has made one thing clear -- he will not seek to directly control the behavior of the president.

The memos have brought some comfort to those in the West Wing according to the New York Times.

But despite Kelly’s effort, the White House still remains under fire.

The president has faced a lot of criticism for his comments on the rallies in Charlottesville, Virgina, blaming “both sides” for the violence. 

He also attacked the media along with his critiques on Twitter Thursday stating, “The Fake News is now complaining about my different types of back to back speeches. Well, there was Afghanistan (somber), the big Rally...(enthusiastic, dynamic and fun) and the American Legion - V.A. (respectful and strong). Too bad the Dems have no one who can change tones!

The White House had tried several times in the past to minimize Trump’s social media rants.
