Trump denies that few want chief of staff job

Trump denies that few want chief of staff job Trump denies that few want chief of staff job

US President Donald Trump announced Wednesday that he'd reveal his pick to replace outgoing Chief of Staff John Kelly within the next two weeks, but with the Mueller investigation probing and prosecuting individuals closest to Trump, filling the position may be tougher than imagined.

The chief of staff job is considered one of the most powerful in Washington, advising the president and serving as a gatekeeper controlling the flow of information and access to the Oval Office. "The two people to hold the job were left with their reputations diminished after failing to constrain the president, who often prefers to function as his own chief of staff".

Rather than building a war room to manage the intersecting crises as past administrations have done, the Trump White House is understaffed, stuck in a bunker mentality and largely resigned to a plan to wing it.

Politico noted Trump's tweet on the subject, which read: "Fake News has it purposely wrong".

"We have a lot of people that want the job", Trump told reporters at the White House. "I will be making a decision soon!" Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) has been one of the few people openly vying for the job, though it's not clear how serious this proposition is.

When Mr Trump appoints a replacement for Mr Kelly, he will set a record for most chiefs of staff within the first 24 months of an administration, according to analysis by Kathryn Dunn Tenpas of the Brookings Institution. "Many, over ten, are vying for and wanting the White House Chief of Staff position". No obvious successor to Kelly was in sight, and there was some fretting that Trump may not be able to fill the job by the time Kelly leaves. The report also describes White House officials as convinced that special counsel Robert Mueller won't find enough in terms of potential collusion with Russian Federation to convict the president of a crime. "Serving as Chief of Staff would be an incredible honor".

Trump's administration has set records for staff turnover, and he has often struggled to attract experienced political professionals, a challenge that has grown more hard by the upcoming threat of costly Democratic oversight investigations and an uncertain political environment.
