Report Describes Staffers at Trump White House in State of Constant Dread
White House officials are experiencing a “mood of acute anxiety” about their careers, Axios reported Wednesday.
“This is the most toxic working environment on the planet,” one White House official explained. “Usually tough times bring people together. But right now this atmosphere is ripping people apart.”
“There’s no leadership, no trust, no direction and at this point there’s very little hope. Would you want to go to work every day not knowing whether your future career was going to be destroyed without explanation?” the official asked.
The question of “which staffer will next be frogmarched out the door by security” is weighing on the staff.
Presidential “body man” Johnny McEntee was escorted out of the White House on Monday. Axios also reported that a former aide to First Lady Melania Trump suffered a similar fate last week.
Axios concluded the chaos is “shredding an already devastated morale” in the administration.
