President Trump’s Chaotic Week
Grant Reeher, professor of political science and director of the Campbell Institute for Public Affairs in the Maxwell School, was quoted in an article in The Hill “For Trump, this week has been anything but sleepy.”
If there’s one thing to know about President Donald Trump, it is that he knows how to pick a fight. Just within this week Trump has thrashed out against former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman, removing security clearance of former CIA Director, John Brennan and canceling his proposed military parade in Washington D.C that then led to an argument with Mayor Muriel Bowser.
Reeher, American politics expert says, “There have been so many things over the last couple of years that it is just impossible to point to one thing that is going to be a particular problem, or more of a problem than the rest.” He comments on the action President Trump has made since his presidency and states, “Under normal circumstances, you could say that any one of those things could be a real distraction — but the real fact of the matter is that [with Trump], you just go from distraction to distraction.”
