Trump Launches Major White House Shake-Up, and His Staff is Worried

By

We elected Trump as president precisely because he’s a maverick, the only type of person who could finally end the “politics-as-usual” in Washington.

But ever since entering the White House, even his own personal staff has been trying to “moderate” Trump, to turn him into something other than the man for whom we voted.

Fortunately, being a maverick, Trump’s having none of it.

A recent incident in which Trump tossed his prepared speech at the very last moment to the horror of his advisers illustrates the shake-up that’s coming.

Via Breitbart:

The speech was written. A cast of relatable Americans with emotional stories was standing by to reinforce the message. But President Donald Trump was in no mood to play along.

“The hell with it,” Trump said, recounting the scene with his aides to a West Virginia crowd last week, Trump tossed the staff-prepared remarks on tax cuts in the air and ducked as the paper fluttered to the floor. “I said, ‘This is boring, come on.’ Tell it like it is.”

This president has never been one to stick to a script, but that abandoned speech illustrates a new phase in Trump’s presidency. He is increasingly at odds with his staff — and growing wise to their tactics.

With the very best intentions, Trump’s most trusted advisers have been trying to steer, manipulate and even play the president.

But folks forget just how intelligent Trump is. He sees through the games, and is taking the situation back into his own hands.
