'Morale in Donald Trump's White House is said to be at an all time low, with some staffers even shopping around their CVs, as resentment grows against their commander-in-chief.

Exhausted by months of trying to put out fires created by their impulsive boss, some are quietly looking to leave, whilst others fear the latest week of scandal may inflict irreparable damage - both to this presidency and their careers.

"Nobody knows where they stand, or how long they will be in a job," one source close to White House aides told The Telegraph.

Mr Trump is "frustrated" and "angry" at the performance of his White House staff, it has been reported and is even threatening to purge large numbers in a "huge reboot".

But the dislike is increasingly mutual. As the White House struggles to come out from under an avalanche of worsening allegations and revelations regarding its relationship with Russia, aides are proving ever more willing to leak their frustration to the press.

Mr Trump does not believe the recent backlash is due to any misdemeanours on his part, it is said, but instead sees it as a public relations failure.

He has particularly laid the blame with his press secretary Sean Spicer and the communications team.

Aides told the Washington Post they were angry with a president who demands loyalty but is willing to publicly undermine his staff.

Mike Pence, the vice president, and Mr Spicer both insisted that Mr Trump fired James Comey, the former FBI chief, on the advise of his justice department, for example. Mr Trump announced the next day that he would have fired Mr Comey regardless.

He trotted out H R McMaster, his national security adviser, to attack reports this week that he had shared sensitive intelligence with Russian officials, only to confirm the news on Twitter himself.
Aides complain that the president has made them look like "liars", and worry that the White House's credibility is in shreds.

“The real question is, how long do you put up with it?” one told the Washington Post. “Every one of those people could get a better-paying job and work less hours.”

For those wanting to remain in their jobs, paranoia reigns supreme. Some fear their work and private emails are being watched and that their phones are being tapped. They leave their devices at home, or at least outside of the room when discussing their job with friends and confidantes.

Experts say Mr Trump's reputation as a boss who is willing to burn his staff may make it more difficult to recruit high quality candidates for the glaring number of positions the administration still needs to fill.

Hundreds of vacancies remain in policy making positions that are directly connected to Mr Trump's priorities and his campaign promises.

Many people being vetted for those positions "must be looking at this White House and seeing a series of red flags", John Hudak, the deputy director for the Centre for Eeffective Public Management at the Brookings Institution wrote this week.

"Every day that President Trump shows public disrespect for his existing staff, pools of qualified applicants will be scared off." '

Breaking News:

Anonymous liberal media sources say, "EVERYONE hates Trump!"

"Trump requests meatloaf for dinner. The embodiment of evil!"

:lol: :lol:

This media "news" has become so pathetically transparent, much of it is self-deprecating comedy.

The Telegraph is a right wing media source.

LOL.


Maybe by European standards. :lol:

I hear people denigrating it all the time, too. Perhaps only because of that perception, and not due to actual insight upon the veracity of it's articles.


Either way, this reeks of blown-up sensationalism. As so often happens in big news media these days.

I guarantee some people in the gov't are worried about losing their jobs. Although those most concerned should be the appointees who have been around for quite awhile. Rightfully so IMO.

Trump does indeed seem to have abandoned everything he said he was going to do. He's licking the arse of the Saudis right now, like a big sell out. He's starting wars in Syria and North Korea when elected by isolationists who have had enough of being World Police.

Ideals havn't been jettisoned this quickly since Jeremy Corbyn became leader of the Communist Party.

Ask Juncker, he's a bit more current when it comes to not giving a shit about what plebs think.

If you can get him to not to slur his sentences.
