The millions of marchers taking to the streets world-wide on Saturday appears to have rattled Donald’s cage. The New York Times is reporting that Trump’s advisers are scrambling after a weekend where Donald, rather than taking concrete steps to unify a divided country, lashed out at his perceived enemies.
Reports the Times: “To the extent that there was a plan to take advantage of the first days of his administration, when a president is usually at his maximum leverage, Mr. Trump threw it aside with a decision to lash out about crowd sizes at his swearing in and to rewrite the history of his dealings with intelligence agencies.”
The article continues: “The lack of discipline troubled even senior members of Mr. Trump’s circle, some of whom had urged him not to indulge his simmering resentment at what he saw as unfair news coverage. Instead, Mr. Trump chose to listen to other aides who shared his outrage and desire to punch back. By the end of the weekend, he and his team were scrambling to get back on script.”
Not a promising start to Donald’s fledgling term.
