President Donald Trump has reportedly asked his chief of staff John Kelly to help him pull his daughter, Ivanka, and her husband, Jared Kushner, from their current roles as "advisors" at the White House, per the New York Times.

The Times article says that the White House is currently functioning under Trump's management style, which they refer to as "chaos theory." But this style is not working well for everyone (or anyone, really), as the Times alleges that White House aides have "expressed frustration" about Kushner and Ivanka Trump being advisors (nepotism much?).

This part is a little confusing, which is not very surprising given that we're talking about Trump: White House aides have said that Trump has told Ivanka and Kushner that they should stay on in their roles, at the same time saying "they never should have come" and "should leave." So now Trump needs Kelly's help in ousting them.

Kushner's security clearance had already been downgraded earlier this week, and Hope Hicks, the White House communications director, announced that she'll be resigning in the upcoming weeks. Chaos, indeed.
