John Kelly says he would have worked for Hillary Clinton if asked

During a Q&A session, Kelly was asked about a scenario in which Trump’s former Democratic rival had won the presidency and asked him to serve in her administration.

“If Hillary Clinton had called me, I would have done it,” Kelly said.

Kelly was also asked what advice he would give his successor Mik Mulvaney, to which Kelly quipped “run for it” to audience laughs, though he became more serious when he said that his successor should just tell President Donald Trump “what he needs to hear.”
