President Trump is circumventing White House chief of staff John Kelly and his grip on the West Wing, according to a new report.

The Wall Street Journal reported Sunday that to go around Kelly, who was brought into the White House in July to implement order, Trump sometimes asks aides to come to his private living quarters so that he can give them tasks without Kelly's knowledge.

The report said that informal advisers on the outside who want to speak with Trump without going through Kelly have taken to calling first lady Melania Trump, who then passes him their messages.

The first lady's office denied the report as it pertained to Melania, calling it "more fake news."
