President Donald Trump has told the couple they should continue serving in their senior White House adviser roles—yet he also privately asked chief of staff John Kelly to help move them out, The New York Times reported Thursday.
Trump has said that the young couple should never have come to D.C., and White House staff is frustrated that the couple remains in their roles, according to the Times.
The conversations illustrate the latest chapter of Trump's struggle to decide the futures of his increasingly embattled daughter and son-in-law.
In September, Politico reported that Trump warned his daughter in front of other staffers after hearing criticism about her role in the administration. “Baby, you’re getting killed, this is a bad deal,” he told her.
