I'm sure our president would relish the editorial "Trump Makes Good on Pledge," Nov. 7, stating that "President Donald Trump rightfully seized his first opportunity to pull out of the Paris climate accords on Monday."

Most of us, including many of his advisers, are aware that Trump is not a team player. He has referred to himself as the team. We have observed that he doesn't value global organizations, not agreeing that we need each other for the good of our planet. He has called climate change a hoax. I fear what move might come next by the "stable genius."

ONE of the people that Trump appointed to his Cabinet is still in office and has not announced plans to resign in the near future. Some Cabinet-level offices have had 3 or 4 Secretaries, and many now have only acting secretaries. Trump definitely has difficulty playing well with others. This amount of upheaval in a cabinet is unprecedented.

and there's going to be five more years of it, too.

I'm telling ya, these Trump groupies are living in some kind of fairyland, where the nonsense that Trump spouts is the truth and everything else is a lie. It's both amazing and frightening to behold.

I love the changes ... if you can't cut it, there is always someone else willing, but you better check your own agenda and narcissism at the door.

Every single competent, experienced person in the Trump administration has either quit or been fired, and they all tell the same story: Trump is an impetuous, ignorant fool. Yet the Trump faithful stand by their man, and criticize anyone who doubts him. So, exactly who has the "syndrome" here?

They quit or were fired because they tried to undermine Trump and what he wants to accomplish as a duly elected president. If I hire someone who doesn't do what I tell them to do, they're fired. You know who else has been fired? Jim Comey, Andrew McCabe, Josh Campbell, Jim Rybicki, Jim Baker, John Carlin, Bill Preistap, Pete Strzok, Lisa Page, Mary McCord, Mike Kortan, Michael Steinbach, David Laufman, Randy Coleman, Sally Yates, John Giacalone, Rachel Brand, Trisha Anderson and many more deep state swamp rats who have been under federal investigation for months. Rybicki, Baker and Preistap flipped and have been cooperating fully with Horowitz's and John Durham's investigation. So they can call Trump whatever names they want, they're just pandering to people such as yourself and we get that.

Those two puritanical bureaucrats testifying at the opening of the hearings are beyond belief, signifying EVERYTHING what is wrong with our bloated government. When they don't agree with a decision of superiors, they tattle and bloviate using a million words to explain their hurt feelings. Enough to make one vomit.

Newshound I 'm sure you are a great patriot, for you to say they are everything that is wrong with our bloated government is about as unpatriotic as anything you can say. You as many on this sight do not want to get the facts, if it means the difference between finding Con Don wrong or protecting the country you will take saving Con Don. These men have spent a lifetime in military and government service. If they had spoken up against Clinton you would be saying they are heroes. Unfortunately Con Don won't let Rudy, Mulvaney and others testify and we could all find out if Con Don did it or not.

If I hired 20 people, and they all advised me to do A when I wanted to do B, my inclination would be to listen to them, not fire them.

bishopsboy

Dear Susan, did Trump hire them or were they hostile holdovers from previous corrupt administrations? If the latter, than Trump is right in firing them and you would too.

It seems you're still unaware of how President Donald J. Trump rolls, you do things his way or you tell your story walking.

newshound

So where did you read these detailed stories..the NY Times or WaPo?

Trump was right to pull out of the sham Paris accord. Why should we, as the world’s leader in emission reductions, be forced to eliminate our current power sources while countries like India and China are allowed to build coal fired power plants for years to come. That’s just one of the many reasons why the accord was a sham. The global organizations Trump doesn’t value are the ones who think we’re dupes that can be easily fleeced for billions of our tax dollars. Obama, the stable attendant, is no longer president and the days of him being blindfolded, spun around three times, kicked in the behind and pick-pocketed by other countries are gone. There will also be no more scam arrangements where the US sends hundreds of millions in US aid to countries like Ukraine, whose government turns around and gives that aid to companies like Burisma, who turned around and gave the Biden family members upwards of $7.1 million dollars WHILE Biden was VP. The Ukraine also led the entire world in foreign personal donations to the Clinton Foundation WHILE Hillary was Sec of St. These things are NOT coincidences and you phony liberals know if it was Trump’s charity receiving tens of millions from Ukraine, you’d be demanding federal investigations. But we get what we *always* get when it’s a Democrat, your hypocritical and compliant silence.

Excellent post billnonymous!

billnonymous

Thank you, DANT! I wish some liberal in here would explain how perfectly fine it was that the eternally broke citizens of Ukraine managed to be the world's leading foreign country in personal donations to the Clinton charity with over $10,000,000 donated. Imagine if Trump's charity received $10,000,000 from Ukraine citizens? Liberals would lose their minds in hypocritical outrage, yet they were just so perfectly and compliantly silent when Bill and Hillary received $10,000,000 in American dollars from 'citizens' of one of the most corrupt countries on earth.

newshound

Exactly ... and the Dems are rolling out a bunch of bruised career diplomats to whine and complain how they "disagreed" with the President's ways to ensure the Ukraine actually would comply to root out corruption and if that drags the crooked Bidens into the mix, tough noogies! As you say, Trump is not the wimpish roll-over type--like Obama--who plays the goody-good political games. Strong and tough leadership is refreshing.
