Firings and Discord Put Trump Transition Team in a State of Disarray
WASHINGTON — President-elect Donald J. Trump’s transition was in disarray on Tuesday, marked by firings, infighting and revelations that American allies were blindly dialing in to Trump Tower to try to reach the soon-to-be-leader of the free world.
One week after Mr. Trump scored an upset victory that took him by surprise, his team was improvising the most basic traditions of assuming power. That included working without official State Department briefing materials in his first conversations with foreign leaders.
Two officials who had been handling national security for the transition, former Representative Mike Rogers of Michigan and Matthew Freedman, a lobbyist who consults with corporations and foreign governments, were fired. Both were part of what officials described as a purge orchestrated by Jared Kushner, Mr. Trump’s son-in-law and close adviser.Plain, stinking bull.
President Trump just leaked news that Jeff Sessions will be his attorney general, Mike Pompeo will head the CIA, and General Flynn will be his national security advisor.
Just 10 days after Americans elected him president 30 states to 20 for Missus Clinton, Trump has made three key appointments.
Barack Obama still was in the Senate 10 days after his election in 2008.
His first appointments -- Lawrence Summers and Timothy F. Geithner -- came on November 24, 20 days after his election. Then he took the rest of the month off to plan his Christmas-in-Hawaii vacation.
Trump is moving along, having fun, and working on his presidency -- from his $100 million gold-and-marble penthouse apartment in New York. Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe paid a call on Thursday. Nigel Farage was there a few days ago. Mitt Romney will bring his olive branch this weekend.
Obama is in Europe talking to the politically Walking Dead of the soon-to-be-disbanded European Union.
The New York Times is the ultimate thin man. It really does not know what time it is.
"Trump the Press" skewers media experts who wrongly predicted Trump would lose the Republican nomination. I use my deadliest weapon: their own words. "Trump the Press" is available as a paperback, and on Kindle.
