Washington Post columnist Max Boot authored an opinion piece on Monday wherein he asserts the President is “demoralizing and undermining one government department after another.”
“It may be largely the result of incompetence and ignorance, but the outcome was foreseen by Trump’s former strategist Stephen K. Bannon. Bannon is long gone from the White House, but his objective – the “deconstruction of the administrative state” – has been progressing very nicely in his absence.”
The columnist proceeds to outline departments where he believes “demoralizing and undermining” has occurred – which in large part consists of staff changes Boot doesn’t like, including at the State Department:
“The State Department is ground zero for Trump’s unrelenting assault on the federal government… What’s lower than rock bottom? Because that’s where we are today with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. He is so selfish, ambitious and unprincipled – and so desperate for Trump’s approbation – that he has allowed shady operators such as Rudolph W. Giuliani to hijack U.S. foreign policy, failed to protect career officials such as Marie Yovanovitch, promoted Russian disinformation about Ukrainian election interference and refuses to comply with lawful congressional subpoenas.”
The real issue the left and establishment types have with President Trump is his America first foreign policy agenda.
These are topics often discussed on War Room: Impeachment, hosted by Stephen K. Bannon, with the WaPo op-ed concluding:
“Bannon should be delighted: The federal government is well on its way to being deconstructed. Heaven help us if Trump has another four years to finish the job.”
