President Donald Trump and White House Chief of Staff John Kelly cleared the air Thursday, with the president telling advisers afterward that Kelly's job is "100 percent safe," The Wall Street Journal reported.

Kelly also reassured his staff, telling them "I'm in," the Journal reports.

Speculation has been rampant that Kelly's days were numbered in an administration that has seen the ouster of Rex Tillerson, the resignation of Gary Cohn last week, and the reported impending termination of national security adviser H.R. McMaster.

Kelly himself fanned the flames of the rumor mill with comments that suggested he was next. But he and Trump reached a truce Thursday, the Journal reports.

"Kelly is not going anywhere," Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a five-word statement Thursday.

As for McMaster, Trump has said he wants to replace him at some point between now and a few months from now, the Journal reports.

McMaster has said that Trump wants him to stay on through November's midterms, the Journal reports.
