Podcast: Crawling Through the Trump White House’s Wreckage


Chaotic policymaking, hard-right ideology, in-fighting, gaffes, and an out-of-control, unpredictable President — I joined Lance Price, former special advisor to British Prime Minister Tony Blair, on Monocle 24’s The Globalist for a 12-minute discussion of the Trump White House.

Listen to Discussion from 4:55

Trump is pretty much serving notice on [chief strategist] Steve Bannon that he is going to rely on other people and that he finds Bannon has not been productive so far….

But this is beyond Trump. He doesn’t lead in isolating Bannon — it’s others who get the President to speak publicly. Two factions are key: a faction led by Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner and the pragmatists at the agencies. They let it be known that Bannon is counter-productive and that it’s time for the adults to take charge of the White House playground.
