    This is Trumps problem, why did he hire him in the first place. All this hiring and firing is a bad look and makes it hard to keep the administration moving in the right direction. It also provides ammunition to his 2020 opponents, say what you will about it being Trumps style. But this is the one part of his job that he has failed at repeatedly. Placing good like minded people in important high profile jobs and reaping the benefits of it.

    The stock indices' rising, isn't automatically good for the economy. In this case it's a bubble.

    Fox's talk show,Outnumbered,had a former Obama lackey on the panel.And true to form she went on ad nauseum on how Trump should be more meticulous in his cabinet picks.And that Obama had only two NSA's in 8 years....yada,yada,yada.Until one of the members of the panel gave her a look and said ,"point made,we get it", as the show ended.

    In my view Trump has changed the game. He approaches the presidency like a businessman.If somebody ain't gettin' it done the way he likes,he tells them to hit the bricks and finds someone who will. He ain't got time for pleasantries and PC BS.He's got a job to do and by God he's going do it.

    Well, somehow she is right in the sense that the Trump's administration is changing a lot, which could beg the question of continuity from one advisor to another, or one secretary to another.

    That being "yeah by Obama only had 2 NSA in 8 years". Yeah? So what? Considering the shit they have done, the scandals they got involved in, Obama should have fired them.
    And how many wars has the Obama's administration started? Maybe he should have fire Hillary, at least Libya would still be seemingly stable and Europe wouldn't be suffocating under waves of migrants and terrorism.

    So maybe trump is changing things a lot, but at least it seems to be for the good reasons. he sees things don't work the way he wants them to, he sees the individual he put in charge isn't really aligned with his vision of things, etc... he is the boss, he does what he wants and deems necessary. Period.

    How many generals did Lincoln fire before he found one he thought could win the war?

    It is my understanding that the policy differences between Donald Trump and John Bolton eventually became so very severe that the former no longer wished to have the latter on his team. (Bolton was usually more hawkish.)

    As a general rule, I found myself more inclined toward John Bolton.

    Nonetheless, it is the president who makes the ultimate decisions. And he is entitled to have whatever team he wants.
