John Kelly Calls Trump’s Border Wall a ‘Waste of Money’

President Trump's former White House chief of staff, General John Kelly, announced this week he would have served under Hillary Clinton if she had won the 2016 election. Kelly made a similar comment in April 2017 as DHS secretary, saying he's "not going to build a wall where it doesn't make sense. If I told them I can get you 2,000 miles, they'd say 'Eh, seems like an bad waste of money, '" he continued.

Hillary Clinton is having none of Trump mocking her for deciding not to run for president in 2020, throwing shade with a spot-on Mean Girls quote.

"By no means is he a stupid man", Kelly said about Trump, according to the Duke Chronicle.

He also said Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan had asked India to send evidence it has against anybody. They can further that goodwill by dismantling the terrorist networks that operate within Pakistan.

And he pushed back against Trump's oft-stated comments that many immigrants seeking entry into the United States along the border with Mexico are criminals.

Kelly also revealed that he does not see eye to eye with the tycoon on his beloved border wall plans, something he shut down our nation's government for 37 days in a futile effort to secure the $5 billion taxpayer dollars to fund it.

"The CBP, Customs and Border Protection people, who are so familiar with the border, they can tell you, you know, if you say, 'I can get you 40 miles, ' they'll tell you exactly where they want it".

NBC noted that "on the administration's handling of children at the southern border, [Kelly] was critical [of Trump], though he blamed then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions for catching the White House by surprise with the adoption of a "zero tolerance" policy".

Kelly left the White House amid Trump's now-infamous government shutdown, which lasted 35 days to become the longest in USA history.

Kelly on Wednesday said that working for the Trump administration may have been his "least" favorite job, but said it was his most important one, stressing that it was his civic duty.

Kelly could have gotten 15 years in prison. "Whether they're old rumors, new rumors, future rumors, not true", Kelly said. In said interview, he spoke about needing help and denied having relationships with young girls held against their will.

Clinton's supporters claimed Trump's "obsession" was the result of his losing the popular vote or, while on the opposite end of the spectrum, the president's supporters said his fixation was based on a desire to see Clinton in jail. He also joked that he told current chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to "run for it".
