Trump Tweets ‘No Chaos In WH, Only Great Energy’ — It Didn’t Go Well

President Donald Trump on Tuesday sent the internet on overdrive after firing off a tweet claiming that there is “no chaos” in the White House, even as he warned of future staff changes that have fueled the notion the West Wing is spiraling out of control.

“The new Fake News narrative is that there is CHAOS in the White House. Wrong!” Trump tweeted. “People will always come & go, and I want strong dialogue before making a final decision. I still have some people that I want to change (always seeking perfection). There is no Chaos, only great Energy!” he added.

Trump’s tweet came in response to news reports that have painted Trump as an enraged president who is sowing chaos among his staff and upending the policy process at the White House.

Several events had reportedly set off the president, including the departure of White House communications director Hope Hicks and a deluge of negative stories about his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner.

Kushner had his security clearance downgraded, limiting his access to the nation’s most closely held secrets, as he faced renewed scrutiny over whether he used his position to help secure loans for his family business. Kushner’s attorneys have denied he acted inappropriately.

On Sunday, Trump lashed out at Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a longtime target of the president for his decision to recuse himself from the Justice Department’s probe into Russian election meddling. And several reports suggested that the president is also searching for a replacement for national security adviser H.R. McMaster.

The president is also reportedly angry over developments in the Russia investigation, which were highlighted Monday by a series of bizarre television interviews by former campaign aide Sam Nunberg.

Nunberg on Monday caused a headache for Trump and sent tremors across D.C. by claiming the president knew about a 2016 meeting at Trump Tower between a Russian lawyer and Donald Trump Jr. and publicly rejected a subpoena request from special counsel Robert Mueller.

Nunberg made a reversal on Tuesday, saying he “will cooperate” with Robert Mueller.
