‘It’s Like Being Held Captive’: Trump Aides Throw Him Under The Bus And Reveal How Horrible It Is Working For Him
Working for Donald Trump must take a toll on a person. So CNN went out and spoke to Trump administration officials and asked them what it was like working for the president.
According to officials, one thing they hate about working under Trump is going on trips with him. In fact, CNN reported that Trump’s staff dread being on Air Force One with him. The President apparently doesn’t sleep. And he’s constantly freaking out about being treated unfairly.
“It’s like being held captive,” one official told CNN of traveling with Trump on Air Force One.
“When Trump first took office, staffers clamored to travel on overseas trips. But now, in the third year of his presidency, several officials said they do their best to avoid staffing the trips because of the chaotic nature that typically accompanies them,” CNN reports.
“During international flights, Trump typically remains in the front cabin. He does four things, the current and former aides said: eats, watches television or reads newspapers, talks with staff and calls friends and allies back home as he zips away into foreign skies.”
“Trump will spend hours reviewing cable news coverage recorded on a TiVo-like device or sifting through cardboard boxes of newspapers and magazines that have been lugged aboard,” CNN adds.
“He’ll summon sleeping staffers to his office at moments the rest of the plane is dark, impatient to discuss his upcoming meetings or devise a response to something he saw in the media.”
According to the report, CNN spoke with five current and former Trump administration officials.
