Now they have their own Brexit in the USA! Or should one say rexit
Or as the Huff Post says "Ship-Rexed"

It seems that the new guy, Pompeo, thinks it is a good idea to bomb Iran. Should be interesting.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Trump said Pompeo is very intelligent and that they are both on the same wave length.

Here is The Donald explaining why Rex is out and Pompeo is in. Looks like he is bringing in a lap dog.

That sentence is what is known as an oxymoron.

Pompeo is (or was) a member of the Tea Party

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Speaking the truth is not the best way to keep your job in the Trump administration

Quote:
Hours after his boss, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, was ousted Steve Goldstein, the under secretary of public affairs at the State Department has been fired by the White House.

Goldstein publicly contradicted the White House account of how Tillerson was fired on Tuesday morning.

Goldstein said Tillerson was officially notified he'd been fired from a tweet from President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning, and in a statement, said Tillerson had "every intention of remaining."
Source

With Goldstein gone, the State Department has only one permanent undersecretary in place out of six.
The remaining, Undersecretary for Political Affairs Tom Shannon, plans to retire when his successor is confirmed.

I am sure the N. Korea negotiation will be entirely secure in the hands of Trump alone.
I wonder how many billions he will offer Kim to sign a deal

To be honest, if Trump carries on the way he is going, he'll need the wall to stop Americans escaping to Mexico!

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

And another exit.

"The president's long-time personal aide John McEntee has been fired by the White House, according to US media.

Mr McEntee, who served as an aide since early in the campaign, was reportedly escorted by security and was not permitted to collect his belongings.

President Donald Trump's re-election campaign announced on Tuesday Mr McEntee would join as a "senior adviser for campaign operations".

The announcement came on the same day Mr Trump fired his secretary of state.

Mr McEntee was fired amid a US Department of Homeland Security investigation against him for financial crimes, CBS News reports.

US media reported his abrupt exit came about due to difficulties in obtaining a full security clearance."

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Democrat Conor Lamb claimed victory in Pennsylvania's 18th Congressional District special election in a speech to his supporters.
Slightly premature since he is less than 600 votes ahead and not all absentee ballots have been counted.

This was thought to be a safe GOP seat where Trump won by 20 points and is the first House seat since Trump's election to be flipped to the Dems.

Meanwhile Robert M. Lightfoot Jr., the acting NASA administrator, announced that he would retire on April 30 but did not say why he was retiring.

NASA has been without a permanent leader for more than a year, Trump nominated a new leader last September but his Senate approval is delayed due to concerns about his views on climate change.
Both the NASA number 2 seat and Chief of Staff are vacant with no nominee proposed.
The NASA number 3 seat is also filled by an acting NASA administrator.
