WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Donald Trump has full confidence in White House Chief of Staff John Kelly and is not looking for a replacement, senior Trump adviser Kellyanne Conway said on ABC's "This Week."

"He has full confidence in his current chief of staff, General John Kelly," she said. "He also has full confidence in Hope Hicks, his communications director.”

Kelly and Hicks have come under criticism for their handling of domestic abuse accusations against White House staff secretary Rob Porter, who said on Wednesday he would resign after two former wives said he abused them.
