Donald never suggested this guy could go – until now.
During a recent interview, President Trump stated someone in his administration may soon be departing, and it’s causing quite a stir in Washington.
Unfortunately, the President has had to say goodbye to a lot of his staff, either because they resigned or the President has had to fire them.
When your White House is full of leakers, firings are unavoidable.
And yet the high turnover rate among Trump’s staff appears to have done little to stunt the President’s operation. Things continue to run smoothly and in line with his vision, no matter who decides to leave.
So while the latest buzz around the Trump White House may come as a surprise, it shouldn’t concern those who trust Trump’s judgment.
President Trump speculated whether Secretary of Defense James Mattis might soon leave the administration, just weeks after a book by journalist Bob Woodward reported that Mattis had privately compared Trump to a “fifth- or sixth-grader.”
Asked by “60 Minutes” host Lesley Stahl whether Mattis would depart, Trump responded, “Well, I don’t know. He hasn’t told me that.”
He continued: “I have a very good relationship with him. I had lunch with him two days ago. … It could be that he is. I think he’s sort of a Democrat, if you want to know the truth. But General Mattis is a good guy. We get along very well. He may leave. I mean, at some point, everybody leaves. Everybody. People leave. That’s Washington.”
