Many who support President Trump understand that the non-stop barrage by the left with their phony Trump – Russia collusion story is a tactic. We were surprised that a decision would be made by the Trump White House to, in essence, surrender to the lying Democrats, allowing bad to triumph over good. They were rewarded with power over the process or a diminished, less effective process and an Attorney General reduced in stature to the nation. That, by extension, weakened the public perception of President Trump as well.
He’s already been through a similar experience with the resignation of National Security Advisor General Mike Flynn. It seems clear that if President Trump had that decision to make over again, he might have stood by one of his most valuable aides a little longer. He certainly doesn’t want to repeat that ordeal again.
Unfortunately, that seems to be exactly what happened with the recusal decision made by Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Many of us thought that something major like that would have been discussed with the President or at least some senior staffers before being announced to the world. That appears to have also not been done, a second reason why President Trump was reported to have been livid.
President Trump convened a Friday morning meeting with senior aides prior to departing for Florida. Included were Reince Priebus, Jared Kushner, Ivanka Trump, Steve Bannon, communications director Mike Dubke, and press secretary Sean Spicer.
While they have a busy week to prepare for and to outline, President Trump took a few moments to express his displeasure at the way the recusal situation had been handled.
President Trump wanted to know, what logic was behind the decision. He made it clear that from his perspective it had been handled poorly, and that the Attorney General should not have recused himself. Politico reports that President Trump later told an assoicate it “made it seem like he’d done something wrong.” Sources in attendance stated that the President was obviously exasperated.
Although Priebus was originally expected to travel to Florida with the group, the decision was made for him to remain behind at that meeting. Perhaps Mr. Trump felt that the communications among his staff is not what it should be and that it was made evident by the Sessions misstep. Maybe he’s trying to get his Chief of Staff’s attention.
An official offered the explanation that it was due to a need to prepare for the upcoming roll out of an Obamacare replacement and a replacement for the terrorist importation ban that the liberal “so-called” judge in Washington has stepped on.
Steve Bannon was among those heading on Saturday to Mar-a-Lago, “for an EO launch meeting” with staffers from the Department of Justice. DHS officials will also be in attendance in the meeting with the President to make sure it goes smoothly.
They have also indicated to Speaker Ryan that they will support his health care bill next week.
It’s reassuring that the uncharacteristic surrender to the circling sharks did not originate with nor would it have had the support of the President. Hopefully those communication issues that resulted in AG Sessions prematurely recusing himself have now been sufficiently addressed so as to avoid another repeat.
Thank you for reading and sharing my work – Facebook is trying to starve us out of existence, having cut literally 98% of our traffic over the last year. Your shares are crucial for our survival, and we thank you. We’ve also created a presence on Gab.ai and MeWe.com, although their reach is presently much smaller, the continued abuse by Facebook of conservative voices leaves us no option. We’re remaining on Facebook for the time being, as we make the transition. Please take a look when you have a chance or if we “suddenly disappear” from Facebook as has happened to many other truth-tellers. They’ll either starve us out or take us down, one way or another, sooner or later.
