Here’s Why Trump And The White House Are In Complete Chaos

Midterm elections are the bain of any sitting President. They are the opportunity for the electorate to take out their gripes with the administration and flip the House and even the Senate, thereby making the second half of the Presidential term essentially ungovernable and potentially wreaking havoc and undoing the work done in their first two years in office.

President Donald Trump‘s midterm elections earlier this month were not disastrous, but they weren’t exactly a victory either, no matter how much he tries to spin those meagre gains in the Senate (which the GOP already controlled) into some glorious triumph. Ultimately, the key point from the results is that the Democrats rode the Blue Wave and retook control of the House of Representatives, and that’s what will be on the President’s mind going forward.

Don’t think, though, that the problems are over for Trump. For a long time now, everything in politics has been a bit up in the air because everyone was waiting for the midterms. “It will become clear after the midterms” was basically the answer to every question about the American government. Now, the midterms are over. So Trump has weathered the blow and can now turn over a new leaf and press forward with his presidency with a newfound freshness and momentum. Right?

Nope. On the contrary – the problems for this President are just beginning. The days, weeks and months ahead look to be as chaotic as ever. And Trump is coming out with all guns blazing. Oh, boy.

We can see this very clearly from the way he has conducted himself in public over the last few days. Obviously, his behavior is often erratic and almost always highly irresponsible, but traits recently suggest that he is gearing up for some true anarchy.

Take, for instance, his remarkable unloading on retired Adm. William McRaven, former head of Special Operations Command. In a mind-boggling spat, Trump thought it would be a good idea to slam the US military for not killing al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden quickly enough. That is not the behavior of someone who feels comfortable and secure in their position.

In other international news, it was reported last week that the CIA now believes the murder of Saudi Arabian journalist Jamal Khashoggi was ordered by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman directly. How did the President respond to this momentous development? By dismissing the report and further disparaging his own intelligence agencies, of course.

There is plenty of reason to be worried here. Our President should not be behaving like this.
