Trump: ‘No chaos’ in White House but I still ‘want to change’ some people

President Trump on Tuesday said there’s “no chaos” in the White House.

“The new Fake News narrative is that there is CHAOS in the White House. Wrong! People will always come & go, and I want strong dialogue before making a final decision. I still have some people that I want to change (always seeking perfection). There is no Chaos, only great Energy!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

Fox News’ Chris Wallace on Friday spoke about the multiple controversies dogging the White House.

Soon after being introduced on Shepard Smith’s show, Wallace said, “Hope Hicks has quit, the person closest to the president among his White House staff. The president hates his attorney general.”

“The deputy attorney general is defending the attorney general from the attack from the president. Gary Cohn, the national economic adviser, is threatening to quit because of the fact that the president announced these tariffs over his objection,” Wallace further noted. “The president reportedly wants to oust his national security adviser.” 

“Somebody is trying to get Jared Kushner. And there’s a report in The New York Times today that the president is telling Kushner he is sorry he’s taken all these slings and arrows while he is supposedly at the same time saying to John Kelly ‘help me get Kushner and Ivanka out of here,’” the ‘Fox News Sunday’ host continued.

Wallace ended the commentary by saying, “Other than that, it is sweetness, light, puppies and unicorns here in D.C.” 

A recent CNN report also described friction between Trump and Republican members of Congress over issues like gun control, tariffs, and attorney general Jeff Sessions.

Nebraska Senator Ben Sasse blasted the president’s proposal of introducing tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, saying, “You’d expect a policy this bad from a leftist administration, not a supposedly Republican one.”

Amid the turmoil, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders defended the administration, saying Friday, “We have a lot of positive things happening within this country, and that’s happening under the direction and the leadership of President Trump, and we’re going to continue to big and great things over the next year under his leadership. If they want to call it ‘chaos,’ fine. But we call it success and productivity, and we’re going to keep plugging along.”
