President Donald Trump asserted on Tuesday that his administration is “getting along great, and getting major things done,” pushing back on widespread reports that the West Wing has been engulfed in infighting.
“Don’t let the FAKE NEWS tell you that there is big infighting in the Trump Admin,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “We are getting along great, and getting major things done!”
Multiple news outlets, including POLITICO, have reported that Trump’s White House has operated in something of a state of chaos since he took office, with aides competing for the president’s ear. POLITICO reported on Sunday that chief of staff Reince Priebus is taking the blame for the administration’s mistakes so far.
The unflattering stories about the administration that have leaked to the media appear to have bothered Trump.
Most recently, several news outlets reported that Trump unloaded on his top aides over Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from any investigations related to the 2016 presidential election, with The Washington Post publishing a tick-tock of the reported incident.
