Washington wonders: Who will get axed next?


Recommended Posts


President Trump’s abrupt firing of secretary of State Rex Tillerson and the conflicting signals coming from the White House about whether more staff moves are on the way has Washington on edge.

That has potential targets for the next round of dismissals — including chief of staff John Kelly, national security adviser H.R. McMaster, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin and Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson — wondering if they’re next.


The president on Thursday blasted back at media reports suggesting that a wholesale overhaul of Cabinet members and senior advisers is in the works, singling out one report as “exaggerated and false.”

But Trump also didn’t rule out some form of personnel shake-up.

“There will always be change, and I think you want to see change,” Trump said.

Those remarks mirrored a statement the president made after removing Tillerson from State on Monday. Trump said he’s “getting very close” to having the Cabinet and advisers he wants.


Team Trump II?
