Donald Trump has faced a wide range of leftist threats during his short time as President, not the least of which has been a series of leaks from inside the White House.
The leaks, which have covered a wide range of subjects, come as the democrats push their unethical “resistance” agenda against the President, hoping to unite roughly half of the nation behind the anti-American cause. The leaks themselves have been a massive distraction for the administration, who are attempting to follow up on campaign promises made by Trump during his battle with Hillary Clinton last autumn. Instead of making progress throughout his fledgling Presidency, Trump has been forced to address these leaks nearly full time in order to maintain some semblance of sanity in D.C.
Now, as Anthony Scaramucci takes the reigns of the White House communications department, priority number one is apparently getting a finger in the dyke.
“Anthony Scaramucci, the new White House communications director, said Sunday that stopping damaging West Wing leaks is a top priority and that he will take ‘drastic action’ to achieve that goal.
“’We have to get the leaks stopped,’ Scaramucci, named Friday to the post, told ‘Fox News Sunday.’ ‘What’s going on right now is a high level of unprofessionalism, and it’s not helping the president. … I will take drastic action to stop the leaks.’
“Trump’s roughly 7-month-old presidency has been mired in the controversy about Russia meddling in the 2016 White House race and whether Trump associates were involved.
“The controversy has been fueled in part by information leaked inside and outside of the White House.
“Scaramucci on Sunday said he would ‘pare down the staff’ to stop White House leaks, but made clear that such efforts will be limited to the communication office and that he wants to start anew.”
President Trump has been forced to shake up his own administration several times this year due to these unseemly leaks, and it appears that the appointment of Scaramucci is a step in the right direction.
Washington’s entrenched elite have lashed out at Trump throughout his young presidency, as his novel and unique approach to the office threatens everything that the establishment believes. His success would be the death knell for the D.C. status quo, and that fact has spooked much of the Belt Way.
