Kelly didn't confirm the comments, but he made similar remarks to Fox News, saying Trump had "very definitely changed his attitude" toward protecting the young immigrants "and even the wall, once we briefed him".
John Kelly told a private meeting of Hispanic members of Congress that "certain things are said during the campaign that are uninformed".
President Donald Trump's very public pushback against his chief of staff's statement that the president's views on a border wall have "evolved" is casting a fresh spotlight on the limits of John Kelly's ability to manage White House tumult, navigate Capitol Hill and keep a demanding, scattershot president on track.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal last week, the president said "the wall's never meant to be 2,100 miles long. you don't need a wall where you have a natural barrier that's far greater than any wall you could build".
In an apparent rebuke of Kelly, Trump wrote on Twitter on Thursday: "The Wall is the Wall, it has never changed or evolved from the first day I conceived of it".
"Kelly took credit for educating the President on the wall and that a concrete barrier from sea to shining sea was no longer the conception of border security barriers supported today by the White House", he said.
Kelly also said that there will be no wall "that Mexico will pay for".
It was during Oval Office negotiations over a potential DACA replacement last week that, in the course of dismissing one deal negotiated by Senate Democrats and Republicans, Trump used a vulgar word to describe African countries and wondered why the USA doesn't get more immigrants from places like Norway.

However, it also says the new model will be the pinnacle of Mustang performance, showcasing innovation, ingenuity, and passion. The vehicle was design based on the Ford Mustang 390 GT fastback model that McQueen's character drove in the movie.
Anchor Bret Baier asked Kelly, "What does the president need to see on chain migration to bless a DACA deal?"
He also expressed confidence that the White House has garnered the votes in Congress for a short-term funding measure to avoid a government shutdown Friday. According to the Post, Kelly, in response to a question about the wall, said, "Certain things are said during the campaign that are uninformed".
This shack standing next to the US-Mexico fence may look as if it can be climbed easily, but the proposed wall is going to be harder to cross.
"The President has said from the beginning, it's got to be bipartisan and unless it involves the House as well as the Senate, it's going to go down again as a bill that does not pass into law", he said.
"The president is frustrated with the media coverage of the last 24 hours", said Raj Shah, deputy White House spokesman.
Also, the chief of staff said the government was focussing on the situation of Dreamers - undocumented immigrants brought to the USA as children - whose protection from deportation lapses in March, unless Congress can reinstate it through a legislation that is the subject of intense debate and negotiations.
Furthermore, sources who witnessed the meeting said that Kelly admitted that Mexico won't be bank rolling the project. The US president Donald Trump talked about building a wall several times during his election campaign. "Campaign to governing are two different things, and this president has been very, very flexible in terms of what's within the realm of the possible".
Many Democrats have said that without an immigration deal in sight, they'll vote against a Republican bill preventing a weekend government shutdown.
