White House desperately seeking to allay staff concerns about personnel changes

Share

President Donald Trump has made a decision to fire his National Security Advisor Lt. Gen HR McMaster and is scouting to find a replacement before the planned high-profile North Korea meetings, according to United States media reports.

"Due to the ongoing turnover we've seen thus far in the Trump Administration, no member on this list can feel particularly safe in their position", BetDSI said in a statement on the 24 Trump officials it gave odds for. McMaster told a ABC news that everybody has got to leave the White House at some point.

But days after President Donald Trump's secretary of state was ousted, many close to Trump think more upheaval is coming soon.

An increasingly confident Mr Trump is privately weighing more changes, expressing frustration with some aides and sifting through possible replacements.

Kelly has told confidants that he believes he can weather the current storm and that he does not plan to quit. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because they weren't authorized to speak publicly about private conversations.

"I'm really at a point where we're getting very close to having the Cabinet and other things that I want", Trump told reporters after Tillerson was sacked.

Though the drumbeat of the ongoing Russian Federation probe has only grown louder, the President believes his recent decisions on tariffs and North Korea have breathed new life into his administration, and he is eager to take more bold steps, telling confidants he wants to rid himself of staffers who hold him back.
