    Trump tries to run the White House exactly as he ran the Trump Organization, where there was no business plan, no development strategy, and no layers of authority. Instead, Trump would come up with an idea, work it up in his head, and tell one of his hand-picked people to get moving on it. What Trump wanted most were soldiers, not subject-matter experts. His management style was hub and spokes. Trump piled up success after success in real estate development where he needed no experts, just soldiers to follow-thru.

    When Trump first arrived at the White House, he stepped outside his comfort zone and appointed several people like Tillerson and Gary Cohn, who had decades of experience in their fields. But they also had ideas that conflicted with Trump, and now they’re gone along with almost all his presidential advisers, replaced with more pliable figures such as Mike Pompeo, effectively soldiers ready to carry out the boss's orders.

    The problem of course is that Trump's hub and spokes management style doesn't and can't work in the White House because a president is not an idea man but a team leader who organizes and manages the idea men which are now being replaced by yes men.

    Because I know Trump. I was following his career long before he ever decide to become president. I've read almost all the books by and about Trump accept for the campaign stuff.

    Although I think Trump is a disaster as a president, he is one of the most interesting people of our time. Crazy, yes but damn interesting.

    I agree - but Nixon was a saint compared to Adolf Trump.

    How is he a "disaster?" He's doing a great job of exposing all the deep state traitors who tried to stage a coup against a lawfully elected president.
