Donald Trump has no expereience running anything public…..
That was a selling point to get support from those who where ‘fed up’ with the way America is ran….
Trump ran his business empire with few , and didn’t care what his employee’s felt or cared about….
THOSE things are NOT gonna work as he moves along in the White House…
In the week he has occupied the place?
He has become isolated and is losing favor with the American public , his own adopted party and the outside world….
In response he has moved top rely on an inner circle of friends and supporters, disreagarding the whole American government….
President Trump and Steve Bannon…… thedailybeast.com
During the Republican Presidential nomination contest everyone stood around while Donald Trump LOUDLY preached to the Republican voters the problems with their party….
During the Presidential campaign Donald Trump preached to those in several ‘safe’ Democratic states that ONLY he could make America ‘Great Again’……He lost the vote but managed to wrangle the job by 100,000 votes…
It has a little more than a week since Donald Trump got sworn in….
In that time he has managed to NOT make America ‘Great’….
He has manged to dismiss assistant from the people he sent to Congress to confirm to help him run the country…
He continues to show that he believes stuff from an entirely different Universe….
And he is TRYING to continue to disguise the fact that he has NO idea what he’s doing , but will keep doing that….
Unlike the campaign’s?
This is the REAL deal….
And at SOME point?
The adults in the other parts of the American government ARE gonna have to grow balls and step in…..
Donald Trump and handfull of his friends CANNOT be allowed to unravel a country of 300 Million people all by themselves …..
People are in the streets marching and protesting….
And, of course there’s always the Nixon way of having to leave office…
The Presidential order that Donald Trump signed on Friday barring all refugees and citizens from seven Muslim countries from travel to the United States was reviewed by virtually no one. The State Department did not help craft it, nor the Defense Department, nor Justice. Trump’s Secretary of Homeland Security, John Kelly, “saw the final details shortly before the order was finalized,” CNN reported. Early Saturday morning, there were reports that two Iraqi refugees had been detained upon their arrival at John F. Kennedy Airport. When a lawyer for the men asked an official to whom he needed to speak to fix the situation, the official said, “Ask Mr. Trump.” This sounded like a sign of straight goonery and incipient authoritarianism; maybe it was. But it also may have been the only reasonable answer. Few people understood what was going on…
On Saturday, the President announced three more executive actions, one of which changed the composition of his National Security Council. Trump reserved one seat on the Council for his chief strategist, Steve Bannon, the former chairman of the right-wing Web site Breitbart News, who has no experience in foreign relations. Trump also limited the roles of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the director of National Intelligence, with a memo that said they will only attend meetings when “issues pertaining to their responsibilities and expertise are to be discussed.” The erasure of the line between national security and Bannon’s politics, which have included an embrace of white nationalism, was deeply troubling. But the exclusion of the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and the director of National Intelligence was more surprising. The President can pick anyone he wants for those positions. Trump has nominated the former Indiana senator Dan Coats to be the director of National Intelligence; the term of the current chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph Dunford, will expire this year. The President seems to be deliberately tightening the circle around him….
In the first week of the Trump Presidency, influence has run through a very select group of advisers—maybe as many as half a dozen, maybe as few as two. The President’s son-in-law, Jared Kushner, and Bannon have consolidated their influence. Kushner, who has spent his brief career running his father’s real-estate empire, reportedly has been told to lead negotiations with Mexico. Kushner was also involved in a discussion with British officials, and denounced the United Kingdom’s support of a United Nations resolution opposing Israeli settlements. According to the Washington Post, some former campaign aides “have been alarmed by Kushner’s efforts to elbow aside anyone he perceives as a possible threat to his role as Trump’s chief consigliere.” But Bannon’s portfolio may be even broader. His hand was apparent in the President’s dark Inauguration speech, in his economic nationalism, and in his early, aggressive stances against Mexico and refugees.
The President’s isolation runs deeper than that. As the confusion around the immigration ban made clear, the vast government he oversees has little input on his actions….
