President Trump celebrated Russia’s expulsion of American diplomats, saying he’s thankful they’re off the payroll: “We’re going to save a lot of money.”
He treated his own party’s Senate Majority Leader like a loser on his former TV show, “The Apprentice.”
Trump appealed to many voters because they wanted a CEO to run government like a business. Is this how successful business leaders operate? Ridiculing their own workers?
He’s turning his own government against him, and my guess is he’ll regret it. No more so than how he’s alienated the intelligence community, which is obviously behind stirring the pot against him on several fronts. They’ll never forget how in January he compared them to Nazis: “Intelligence agencies should never have allowed this fake news to “leak” into the public. One last shot at me. Are we living in Nazi Germany?” he tweeted.
If there wasn’t a “Deep State” before Trump got here, there is now. And he is in their crosshairs.
