President Trump emphasized his support for his chief of staff John Kelly on Tuesday, saying he has done “a fantastic job.”

“Thank you to General John Kelly, who is doing a fantastic job, and all of the Staff and others in the White House, for a job well done. Long hours and Fake reporting makes your job more difficult, but it is always great to WIN, and few have won more than us!” Mr. Trump tweeted.

Mr. Trump’s tweet came after a Vanity Fair article reported that the relationship between the two men had become turbulent in wake of the immigration debate. The piece said that Ivanka Trump, senior adviser to the president and his eldest daughter, was already on the hunt for a replacement.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders pushed back on this narrative earlier in the day equating the magazine to a coaster.

“I don’t think it is a reliable source of information, and certainly not on this topic,” she said on Fox News.
