While staffers are literally fleeing Donald Trump’s White House in droves, the unhinged president has full intentions of making this purge even worse.
Apparently, Trump doesn’t think his nearly-abandoned White House is empty enough yet, as reported by Vanity Fair‘s Gabriel Sherman. Sherman has been in contact with several sources close to Trump, and they’ve communicated that even more changes in staff are soon to come — particularly within Trump’s senior administration staff.
A Republican close to the White House has told Sherman that unhinged Trump is “frustrated by all these people telling him what to do,” and wants to act on his impulses without interference. Clearly, Trump’s recent behavior to impose tariffs and to meet with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un supports this, as Trump made those decisions on a whim and without the consultation of his White House team. The GOPer said:
“Trump is in command. He’s been in the job more than a year now. He knows how the levers of power work. He doesn’t give a f*ck.”
One of Trump’s friends also weighed in on Trump’s tariff decision, saying that it was “like a fuck-you to Kelly,” Trump’s Chief of Staff.
“Trump is red-hot about Kelly trying to control him.”
Five Republican sources stated that Trump has chalked up all of the issues with his presidency and his struggling administration to having the wrong team and is now “fixing” the problem by replacing his senior staff. One source said:
“Trump is going for a clean reset, but he needs to do it in a way that’s systemic so it doesn’t look like it’s chaos.”
Sources say that the first to go will be the advisors Trump has been at odds with for the last several weeks, Chief of Staff John Kelly and National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster. Surprisingly, Trump’s own family members, his daughter Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner, will not be exempt from this purge. Sherman wrote:
“Next on the departure list are Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump.”
While Trump has always tried to benefit his family, Ivanka and his son-in-law “have been sidelined without top-secret security clearances by Kelly, and sources expect them to be leaving at some point in the near future.”
This is absolute insanity, and could be the final downfall of the Trump administration. Trump has singlehandedly turned the White House into a reality television sh*tshow, and there is even less hope for recovery than ever.
