Another official said Mr Kelly called President Trump "unhinged" during a meeting with Defence Secretary Jim Mattis, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford and senior National Security Council officials when discussing the US's future role in Syria.

"What disturbs me more about John Kelly is that he hasn't been able to put a clamp on the president's sort of most ridiculous instincts", the Maryland Democrat said. When the story first broke, Kelly spoke highly of Porter in a statement. I am committed to the President, his agenda, and our country'.

It's a frightening way from a chief of staff to be describing the most powerful person in the world, but Acosta reports that Kelly's disparaging assessment came after Trump made comments that many in the country found jarring. "He's an idiot", and "We've got to save him from himself".

The report added that Trump was growing exhausted of Kelly's attitude.

Trump appeared to respond to the report on Monday night, renewing his attack on the media in a tweet that said: "The Fake News is going insane making up false stories and using only unnamed sources (who don't exist)".

"The officials said Kelly portrays himself to Trump administration aides as the lone bulwark against catastrophe, curbing the erratic urges of a president who has a questionable grasp on policy issues and the functions of government", NBC reported.

Kelly was responding to a report from NBC News that he had referred to the president as an "idio". Tell us something. Didn't you say Obama wiretapped you?

According to the officials, it was Kelly who helped to orchestrate the end of the bipartisan talks revolving around the immigration deal and DACA along with other Republicans.

The blistering report from NBC News details repeated instances in which Kelly insulted the president. If anything, they said during meetings Kelly is the "bigger gentleman" who steps in when aides use foul language to note "a lady is present" and similarly says he shouldn't use foul language in front of a lady if he's used an expletive.

Kelly told senior national security officials in what appeared to be a "moment of frustration" in the last month that he believed the President was becoming "unhinged", according to the senior administration official.
