After fact-checking Donald Trump on Thursday, former Chief of Staff John Kelly continued to blast the president on Friday during an interview with former Trump White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci.

Kelly told Scaramucci that he “agrees” with former Trump Secretary of Defense James Mattis’ claim that it is dangerous for the president to be using military force against American citizens protesting against police brutality.

“The idea you would unleash American active duty folks unless it’s an extreme situation… the troops hate it,” Kelly said. “They don’t see it as their jobs. They don’t want to be used in that way.”

Kelly went on to blast Trump for trying to be a dictator.

“The separation of powers is very very important,” he said. “No president ever is a dictator or a king.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Kelly went on to urge Americans to elect a better leader, with good ethics.

“I think we need to look harder at who we elect,” he said. “What is their character like. What are their ethics. Are they willing… to represent all of their constituents, not just the base.”
