As Rumors Of An Exodus Swirl, White House Pushes Back
Mar 19, 2018, 04:07
Trump has expressed frustration with aides whom he believes try to "manage" him according to several current and former White House officials - and has grown exhausted of efforts by his staff to stall controversial actions they disagree with.
The feeling of unease has been pervasive, though, with one White House official acknowledging "the scariest part about working here" is that no one ever knows what's going to happen or who will be next.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanderssaid Mr. Kelly spoke with White House staff and assured them that there were "no immediate personnel changes at this time". The issue, according to a report from the Washington Post, was that McEntee has a high-dollar gambling habit-the sort of thing that was previously unimaginable among senior aides, it could pose a potential security risk.
McMaster is Trump's second national security adviser, succeeding Michael Flynn who was dismissed a year ago for misleading Vice President Mike Pence about his contacts with the Russian ambassador to the United States.
He was reportedly furious when Trump chose to oust Tillerson in a tweet. One source said McMaster's departure could come as soon as Friday, while others said that is unlikely.
John Bolton is once again the leading candidate to replace McMaster as national security adviser, and after the two met in the Oval Office last week, a source close to the President said: "Trump has always wanted Bolton". And Trump's allies on Capitol Hill have not been notified of any major changes and have been told not to expect anything immediately.
The president also recently told an ally that he was still frustrated by an interview that Kelly gave to Fox News almost two months ago in which he suggested that Trump had "evolved" in his thinking about the need for a wall on the Mexican border. Some individuals whose names have been floated for open positions have even phoned cable news hosts who are known to regularly speak with Trump, hoping that they can put a good word in with the President.
The same could be said for Health and Human Services Secretary Ben Carson, whose agency has come under fire recently for opulent spending on furniture for his government office.
Kelly looked to tamp down on those rumors after a prolonged meeting with the President this week.
The president is said to remain pleased with Mattis, as the defense secretary rarely publicly disagrees with Trump and has succeeded in quietly working through any differences, according to three White House officials and outside advisers.
Trump told advisers Thursday that the chief of staff was "100% safe", a White House official confirms to CNN.
