Retired Marine Gen. John Kelly is a battle-hardened commander who would bring a background of military discipline and order to President Donald Trump's roiling White House as the new chief of staff. Kelly's experience as Homeland Security secretary and a veteran of three tours in Iraq – along with a sobering family tragedy – suggests he'll be a loyal manager for Trump when he starts the job Monday.Trump called Kelly a "great leader" and "great American".People who know Kelly told AP that he was not aware of the details of the initial orders until around the time that Trump signed it.Kelly has stood up to Congress, another facet of his history that Trump might find attractive.
