Trump has Finally Seized Control of His Presidency
Since President Donald Trump has taken office, he’s been tugged in every direction by aids and cabinet members who feel as if it is their duty to do the president’s job for him.
Much of the high turnover rate in the White House has a lot to do with Trump firing aids who refuse to truly work with him and bring forward his agenda. Now, though, we’re seeing signs that Trump may have finally seized control of his presidency.
It started with President Trump imposing the steel and aluminum tariffs that he promised on the campaign trail, going against the advice of his aids and causing his chief economic advisor Gary Cohn to resign. Next, Donald Trump took it upon himself to arrange a one-on-one meeting with North Korea’s Kim Jong-un. If the meeting goes through as planned, Trump will become the first US President in history to meet with the North Korean dictator.
The biggest sign that Trump has taken control of his Presidency, though, came when he fired Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. Trump and Tillerson never saw eye-to-eye on many foreign policy issues, leading to an internal power struggle that many times Tillerson got the better of. Now, though, by firing Tillerson and replacing him with Mike Pompeo – a man who tends to agree with Trump on many more issues – Trump is signaling that he is ready to start pushing his own foreign policy agenda forward.
