In recent weeks, the United States has watched President Trump make a fool of himself time and time again. First, he fired FBI Director James Comey, then he shared classified information with the Russians to the dismay of Israel. It comes as no surprise that people are fed up with his antics.
There are those like Jeb Bush who believed that Trump’s presidency would be “chaotic” from the start. He said this on Friday:
‘When I ran for office, I said he is a chaos candidate and would be a chaos president, unfortunately, so far chaos organizes the presidency right now.’
However, former presidential candidate Jeb Bush did offer advice, telling Trump to “stop tweeting,” adding that tweeting gives “our enemies all sorts of nuances and insights” into the mind of the president of the United States.
President Trump has indeed made a mess of things with one controversy quickly following another. A special counsel headed by former FBI Director Robert Mueller was appointed this week to investigate his administration’s possible connections to the Russian hacking of 2016 election, an investigation that was being headed by the now-terminated James Comey.
President Trump is also accused of trying to influence and even halt the investigation of Mike Flynn, who is believed to have ties to Russia. It is a horrible act in itself, and leads people believe that the president could in fact be involved directly. If the president did ask former director Comey, to stop his investigation into Mike Flynn, it is possible that criminal charges could be brought up against members of his administration.
Jeb Bush also believes that the Trump administration lacks the ability to keep it’s mouth shut saying,
‘I’ve never seen a White House as leaky as this one,’ Bush said. ‘People should be fired if they’re disloyal to the president of the United States and leaking.’
Who to blame for the leaking has not yet been made clear. It is true that the White House has had issues with stating definitive facts, which is very unsettling.
It could also bring down a presidency.
