Donald Trump must know his administration is in deep trouble, because he’s now going to extreme measures to try and shake things up. In a sorry attempt to save his failing presidency and administration, Trump is apparently going to try and get his former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, to come back and “bring order” to the White House.
According to a report by Politico, Trump couldn’t be more disappointed in his staff and the insane amount of scandals that have plagued the White House since his term began. Instead of realizing that he is a major part of the problem, Trump is turning to his older advisors for help. Politico reported:
“Former officials including Jason Miller, David Bossie and Corey Lewandowski have slid back into the president’s group of advisers as Trump has chafed at the steady stream of damaging leaks and critical blind quotes that have flowed out of the West Wing.”
Lewandowski has already visited with Trump apparently – he was seen at the White House yesterday. Politico wrote:
“A White House official said that Trump has floated the idea of bringing back his longest-serving campaign manager, who recently resigned from his lobbying shop Avenue Strategies amid allegations that he appeared to be selling access to the White House. He has told people that the president has asked him to “bring order” to Trump’s feuding White House staff, according to a GOP operative briefed on the situation.”
If Trump thinks Lewandowski is going to clean up his administration’s image, he’s dead wrong. Just like most of the members in his White House, Lewandowski became a highly controversial figure during Trump’s presidential campaign, when he assaulted Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields.
Lewandowski was ousted after that incident, and failed to get himself a spot in Trump’s administration after Trump won the election. However, Lewandowski has reportedly been trying to get into Trump’s administration for quite a while, and “is already talking up the idea that he has been helping ‘broker’ conversations between the White House and other prospective new staff.”
Something tells us that if Trump wants to restore order to his administration, Lewandowski probably isn’t a good fit.
