'He is the root of dysfunction': Right-wing WSJ editorial shreds Trump for sowing White House chaos

‘He is the root of dysfunction’: Right-wing WSJ editorial shreds Trump for sowing White House ‘chaos’

The Wall Street Journal’s conservative editorial page has written a blistering editorial calling out President Donald Trump for sowing “chaos” in the White House — and it says that Trump has no one to blame for it but himself.

The editorial begins by noting that White House Communications Director Mike Dubke submitted his resignation this week — and then goes on to say that merely overhauling the White House’s public relations team won’t do any good as long as Trump keeps behaving so erratically.

“Mr. Trump certainly needs to fix his White House mess, but staff changes won’t matter unless the President accepts that he is the root of the dysfunction,” the editors write.

The editors then go on to recount the ways that Trump has caused massive problems for himself through his rash decision-making process and his lack of formal structure for crafting and selling policies. They also write that Trump has fostered an atmosphere of intense back-biting within the White House, which has led to an unprecedented number of internal leaks to the media.

1. Wherever he goes and whatever he does, chaos comes with him. It's what he does.

2. Exactly. This appears to be his management style

He's used to everyone being completely reliant on him. He also gets other parties "over the barrel" so they have to stick with him.

3. That only works in his business dealings, not in Washington and not in international diplomacy.

Our country suffers because he doesn't know how to operate in any other way.

Old dog, new tricks...that sorta thing.
