The Trump Administration’s Radical Turnover Has to Stop

American voters elected Pres. Donald J. Trump as a Washington outsider that promised to “drain the swamp.” More than a year into the Trump Administration, the swamp appears thoroughly entrenched, but White House staffers have suffered perhaps the worst turnover in history.

The reasons have ranged from domestic abuse allegations to disclosure problems to downright incompetence. Although the president’s base continues to support the mission, the turnover has simply got to stop if Pres. Trump’s Make America Great Again goal is to be realized.

These are key Trump Administration officials that have fallen from grace and why.

Reince Priebus (White House Chief of Staff)

Priebus appeared to be a fish out of water in an executive-style White House that encouraged competition. His rocky relationship with strategist Steve Bannon had become a hot media topic and friction with Trump family members didn’t help his cause. The lynchpin may have come during the brash and short-lived tenure of Anthony Scaramucci. Pres. Trump hired “the mooch” over Priebus’ objections. Scaramucci said, on the record, that “Reince is a f*&^ing paranoid schizophrenic, a paranoiac.” Chaos.

Sean Spicer (White House Press Secretary)

Of all the well-intentioned hirings, Sean Spicer may have been the administration’s largest misstep. Spicer became increasingly combative with a press corps that played to its “never-Trump” TV audience. He appeared to be sucked in to pointless debates about minutes in meaningless timelines and grossly speculated on topics. Press briefings got so out of control, the president himself came down and took the media to task. At the end of the day, Spicer couldn’t handle the job or the Saturday Night Live skits about him.

Gen. Michael Flynn (National Security Adviser)

The official story has always been that former Gen. Flynn misled Vice President Mike Pence. While that may be the case, Flynn would later be indicted by the FBI and plead guilty to charges that he lied about conversations with Russian counterparts. Oddly, he was conducting a lawful part of his job and didn’t need to lie about it to anyone. Bizarre.

Katie Walsh (White House Deputy Chief of Staff)

After only two months into her West Wing post, Walsh moved on after the Priebus ouster. She was widely considered a tremendous asset during the election campaign and highly favored by the president. But with Gen. John Kelly taking the chief of staff position, the Trump loyalist continued her MAGA work outside the White House.

Omarosa Manigault-Newman (position, unclear)

The holdover from the president’s days on “Apprentice” has been widely viewed as a tenacious fighter that fit neatly into the competitive style Pres. Trump favored. She engaged people as adversaries and did not mesh well with the military, chain of command style that Chief of Staff John Kelly implemented. There have been reports she utilized White House resources for personal use and broke with protocol. There have also been reports that she was physically dragged away from the residency. Omarosa is back on reality TV, where she apparently belongs.

Rob Porter (White House Staff Secretary)

The Trump Administration appears to have slipped up in its vetting of Porter, much like Michael Flynn. After Porter’s ex-wives came forward about domestic violence allegations, he was tried and convicted in the court of public opinion. Despite categorically denying the abuse allegations, the #MeToo culture placed a heavy burden on the White House let the talented staffer. He had been seen as a rising star, but resigned.

David Sorensen (White House Speechwriter)

Like Porter, Sorensen also denies allegations that he committed domestic abuse. In fact, the mild-mannered speech writer claims it was the other way around. Unlike Porter, Sorensen’s lower-level post did not require security clearance or extensive vetting. He also resigned.

George Sifakis (Director of the Office of Public Liaison)

The former Pres. George W. Bush appointee provided outreach to a variety of business leaders. However, after two of the business advisory groups became hotly politicized, Pres. Trump disbanded them. Sifakis was a Priebus hire by all accounts and quietly exited rather than continue in a diminished role.

Along with six of the 12 top tier White House positions seeing turnover, household names such as Steve Bannon, Sebastian Gorka and others with a direct relationship to the president have been ousted for one reason or another. This has been compounded by Deep State operatives such as the DOJ’s Sally Yates, FBI’s James Comey and Andrew McCabe being forced out. By contrast, former Pres. Obama lost only one top-level advisor and former Pres. George W. Bush lost none.

All of this underscores an important lesson for President Trump and Kelly — vetting for higher-level positions needs to be far more strenuous, and this radical turnover has to stop.

  1. The key element that our President needs to understand is that no matter who he wants, appoints, or nominates the msm, the DNC, the current Dems in the Senate and the House, and members of his very own party will be against him and his policies. My suggestion is that President Trump restrain himself from Tweeting his responses to irritating individuals and concentrate on finding true Conservatives in states where the current elected members are more RINO and making sure that those people are the ones the RNC supports this coming election. He needs to, at he very least, gain one or two Senate seats and maintain the majority in the House in order to have any hope of getting his agenda and his policies going ahead.

  2. ?The President doesn’t seem to know who he’s hiring. He grabs the newest “star” and then gives him/her a job he/she is totally unsuited for. Doesn’t he pay attention to anyone?

  3. Maybe, just maybe trump needs to listen to other then rinos, good old boys and really the rnc on who he picks. there are all kind of good people that were with him from the start……BUT….for some reason they are passed over for the ones that were against him, the rinos etc. Do not know where he is getting his advice, but a heck of a lot of it is just plain bad…..I have said it before and that is……his daughter and her husband are not for his program and I feel are working behind the scenes to make it fail…..they both need to go. Just for starters.

  4. President Trump is taking care of business by weeding out those people who do not contribute to the overall mission. I am sure that in the business world where he so successful, weeding out processes similarly occurred. After all, the government of the United States is a “huge company” and moves have to be made

  5. It is a strategy aimed at ousting Trump. Pick them off one by one with unsupported allegations and the mud sticks. Social media ensures they leave.

  6. To our President: Good afternoon to those of you all in our White house who are trying to uphold the laws’ of our Constitution and also for the many Millions of people of our country who are attempting to piece together the different happenings’ going on around the world. My name is Daniel L. Whitens and I stand for justice and right way conservativism to especially all those involved in our way of life as we know it to be. I strongly encourage that after the incident last week at Parkland, there has to be a better way to allow and put a more protective Law-structuring way to let the future children, kids, and young people to learn the nature of our way of life to set for themselves major important goals’ in theor lives to be attainable and reachable so that others around them can also strive for themselves to be better citizens and future leaders’ of our wonderful United States of America.
