MPCore.us – US President Donald Trump stated on Thursday (15/11) that his government “went very smoothly,” even though he would fire some key staff again.
“I will make changes in various ways,” Trump told the Daily Caller, a conservative news site. “There are several names, not many names,” Trump continued.
Last week, a day after the Democratic Party took control of the DPR for the first time in eight years, Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump has long criticized the evasive Sessions by special prosecutor Robert Mueller who is investigating the links between Trump’s 2016 campaign team and Russia and whether Trump, as president, has blocked the course of the law by trying to stop the investigation.
Then, on Wednesday, Trump approved his wife, Melania Trump’s request to dismiss deputy national security adviser Mira Ricardel, who was at loggerheads with the First Lady last October when Ricardel found no seats for him and other staff of the National Security Council on the plane that brought Melania Trump to a tour his friendship to Africa. The White House said Ricardel will be transferred to another place in the Trump administration.
In an interview with the Daily Caller, Trump said, after the midterm election, in the midst of the president’s four-year term “you made changes, so I observed a number of things and there were many choices. Many people wanted to join. Many politicians with very successful careers and very well want to join in. So I’m studying various things, but haven’t made a decision. “
In comments on Twitter, Trump said, “The White House is running very smoothly and the results for our Nation are clearly very good. The world is jealous of us.”
But Trump complained, “every time I think of making a change, the FAKE NEWS MEDIA is overheating, always trying to make us look very bad! Very dishonest!”
News accounts report Trump is considering whether to fire Homeland Security Secretary General Nielsen, who is often criticized for not reducing the number of migrants illegally entering America along its border with Mexico in the south. At the same time, Trump is likely to replace White House chief of staff John Kelly, Nielsen’s supporters and chief of staff when Kelly served as Minister of Homeland Security before he served in the White House.
Trump officials Tuesday attacked Melania Trump’s request to dismiss Ricardel.
“That is the position in the First Lady’s office which is no longer appropriate for her position at the White House,” said the spokesperson for the First Lady.
The CNN television station said President Trump was angry at the incident, saying it made him look like “an ordered husband.”
But within 24 hours, President Trump’s spokesman, Sarah Sanders, said, Ricardel “will continue to support the president even though he is no longer in the White House to assume a new assignment in the government.”
