Washington – His circle of faithful is shrinking, facing new constitutional action almost alone, irritated and in seclusion. In this way, some world media today assessed the situation of the outgoing President Donald Trump, who on Wednesday, as the first head of state in the history of the USA, became the target of so-called impeachment for the second time. According to The Washington Post (WP) and The New York Times (NYT), the relationship between Trump and his lawyer Rudolph Giulian is also falling apart.
“While less than seven days remain until the end of his presidency, his inner circle is shrinking, White House offices are being emptied, and the president is venting his anger at some of those who remain,” WP said, referring to Trump’s associates. “He is upset that his allies have not been able to defend more strongly against his incitement to the crowd that attacked the Capitol last week,” he continues. article.
Trump showed up to reporters since the riots last Wednesday only on Tuesday, which was also the only time he commented on his second impeachment. Some U.S. journalists warned during the week that the White House did not appear to have a strategy for defending itself against allegations of “incitement to rebellion,” and that its representatives had not participated in the congressional process at all. As for Wednesday’s vote, in which the House of Representatives approved a constitutional lawsuit, Trump watched it on White House television.
“Abandoned by some on his side, Trump had no choice but to watch history on television,” the AP said. “Blocking his Twitter account has stripped Trump of his most powerful tool for enforcing discipline among Republicans, creating the impression of a toothless Trump whose power over his adopted political party was not unquestioned for the first time,” he added.
After the vote, the president made a video condemning the actions of those he called “very special” during the riots in Congress. “Making America big again has always meant defending the rule of law,” Trump said. AP wrote that the statement was partly motivated by fears of possible legal consequences for “igniting the riots”.
According to a new analysis by Reuters, based on interviews with more than a dozen members of the Trump administration, the last days in the White House are marked by anger and confusion. “He was hit by a sudden split between Trump and his vice president and the departure of disgusted advisers,” the article said. Reuters sources reportedly described a shrinking circle of loyal advisers who “have something to do to tame an increasingly irritated, angry and isolated president.”
He allegedly no longer gets along with his lawyer Giuliani, who, like Trump, promoted conspiracy theories about falsifying election results for several weeks. According to WP sources, the president has now instructed advisers not to reimburse the former mayor of New York for his efforts to question the results in key states without his permission. One unnamed adviser said NOWthat White House workers began blocking Giuliani’s attempts to contact Trump over the phone.
There were six days left until the end of Trump’s term today. Although the outgoing president has still not congratulated his successor on winning the autumn election, preparations for Joe Biden’s inauguration are in full swing. Journalists working for the White House today reportedthat a banner with the words “2021, Biden, Harris, inauguration” was newly stretched in front of the seat of American presidents.
