( – Former Trump administration active White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney slammed retired Gen. John Kelly for speaking about a number of conversations he had with former President Donald Trump where the former President had expressed positive views about Adolf Hitler. Trump had specifically referred to Hitler’s ability to inspire loyalty from the military. 

Kelly had served as the White House chief of staff from July 2017 to January 2019. As he had told Jim Sciutto, a chief national security analyst and CNN anchor during an interview for a new book, Trump had often expressed admiration for several leaders, including Hitler who he had argued had done “some good things.” 

During an interview on “The Hill” on NewsNation Mulvaney had slammed Kelly for these comments and had insisted that he had never heard Trump make any direct reference to Hitler. Mulvaney had taken over Kelly’s position from January 2019 to March 2020. As he argued he found it interesting how many of those who are now accusing Trump of reading Hitler’s speeches were the same people who had previously accused him of not reading. 

He proceeded to argue that this was “outrageous” and that he had never seen anything resembling what was described during his time serving in the Trump administration. He added that Kelly was known to hate the former President and that while he did not know what was prompting Kelly to do this, he had never heard Trump make any mention of Hitler. Mulvaney has also in the past criticized Trump but as he argued he always approached his criticisms respectfully.
