Trump Reportedly Misses Accused Wife-Abuser Rob Porter, Wants Him Back in White House

Donald Trump is still in communication with Rob Porter, and is considering bringing back the disgraced former White House staff secretary, despite multiple allegations of domestic abuse, the New York Times reports.

Trump has “stayed in touch” with Porter and told some of his aides he hopes Porter will return to the West Wing.

According to the Times, in recent weeks Trump’s calls with Porter have increased in frequency “as the number of people he is close to in the White House has dwindled because of the large number of staff departures.”

As the Times reports, the president is aware he cannot bring Porter back to the White House but apparently “misses the staff structure” of which Porter played an internal role.
