But Kelly can only keep tabs on Trump during working hours, and the president has often gone rogue when left alone.

According to the newspaper, some of the presidents' friends have also at times bypassed the official channels, calling the president's wife Melania Trump and asking her to pass a message on to her husband.

Stephanie Grisham, the spokeswoman for first lady Melania Trump, said the ornaments will be given away as gifts and there's no plan to sell them.
