Now that John Bolton joins the ranks of other former cabinets members, Mr. Trump can be his own security advisor. Mr. Trump said the security job in his administration is a piece of cake. Trump will tell the security advisor how to run that part of his administration, according to the New York Times.
Mr. Trump is a control freak. Most of his cabinet jumps when Trump needs help digging himself out of the domestic and foreign debacles he creates. Attorney General Bill Barr helped him hide his criminal activities during the 2016 campaign. And Wilbur Ross told NOAA officials to confirm Trump’s claim that Dorian would hit Alabama.
Mr. Ross got the word to threaten NOAA employees from Mike Mulvaney, Trump’s chief of staff. Trump told Mike he needed help justifying his ridiculous weather report. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin protects Trump by claiming a recession is fake news, and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos keeps Trump happy by denying 99 percent of the applications for college loan forgiveness, according to the Washington Post.
U.S. democracy is in trouble, according to the Jerry Nadler the chairman of the Judiciary Committee. Nadler and his committee sent evidence to Trump’s lawyers that show Mr. Trump broke all sorts of laws in 2016 and after the election. Nadler’s dilemma is what charge will be the right charge to bring Trump down. Trump did obstruct justice, according to the unredacted Mueller report, and Mr. Trump still profits personally while he sits in the oval office, according to Nadler.
Nancy Pelosi won’t say the impeachment word until most of the country thinks Trump should be wearing an orange jumpsuit. But she also knows Senate Republicans won’t convict Trump if he does become the fourth impeached president, according to the Washington Post.
But the eroding economy might be Trump’s downfall. Trump’s tariff war will erase most of the economic growth in 2019. That’s why some Trump advisors want Trump to call an interim truce and roll back some tariffs.
The president told the press he will reveal his new middle-class tax cut in 2020. Trump said he wanted to cut middle-class taxes by 10 percent during the 2018 midterm elections, but that never happened. But now that the Federal Reserve Board won’t get involved in Trump’s trade war, he has to come up with an economic stimulus that will keep him in office, according to the New York Times.
