President Donald Trump again pushed back against highly-reported stories in the mainstream media about West Wing infighting and turmoil. Trump said his administration is “getting along great, and getting major things done.”
Posting on Twitter, the president said “Don’t let the FAKE NEWS tell you that there is big infighting in the Trump Admin. We are getting along great, and getting major things done!”
Several media outlets, including the Washington Post and POLITICO, have recently written that the White House has been operating in a chaotic state of uncertainty since Trump was inaugurated, with several aides and insider factions struggling to gain the president’s attention.
On Sunday, POLITICO reported that White House chief of staff Reince Prebius is receiving most of the blame for the administration’s missteps so far. Several stories emerged last week discussing the president’s anger at Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ desicion to recuse himself from any investigations related to the 2016 election.
Don’t let the FAKE NEWS tell you that there is big infighting in the Trump Admin. We are getting along great, and getting major things done!
