‘Pure madness’: A Dark, Angry and Isolated Trump
These are the darkest days in at least half a year, said White House aids, and they worry just how much farther President Trump and his administration may plunge into unrest and malaise before they start to recover. As one official put it: “We haven’t bottomed out.” Trump has become increasingly isolated as senior staff jump ship at an unprecedented rate, including longtime confidante Hope Hicks. In an unorthodox presidency in which emotion, impulse and ego often drive events, Trump’s ominous moods manifested themselves last week in his zigzagging positions on gun control; his shock trade war that jolted markets and was opposed by Republican leaders and many in his own administration; and his roiling feud of playground insults with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
