It is a constant in Trump's leadership: In difficult moments he impulsively removes himself from his environment.
The halls of Washington have become a hotbed of intrigue, backstabbing and fights among rival factions.
It's time to stock up on popcorn for the spectators who are watching this White House performance.
The Washington Post suggests that Trump's behavior is “worthy of a banana republic.” The Wall Street Journal compares President Trump to Turkish autocrat Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Filipino autocrat Rodrigo Duterte.
Donald Trump is responsible for the start of the most chaotic U.S. presidential term in the last century, and everything indicates that things could become more twisted because the leader of the world's greatest power does not appreciate how important it is to generate a sense of restraint, stability and control.
What is certain is that The Donald is frustrated by the repeated defeats he has suffered at the hands of his own majority in the Senate, and Priebus was inevitably the first to be blamed.
Trump's displays of power seem more like a way of escaping a reality that is much more difficult and complex than he could have imagined as a candidate.
It’s depressing and painful to think that something like this could be happening in Washington.
Tension within his majority, inability to advance reforms, internal conflict. The climate in Washington is adverse to say the least.
