Are Only Two Trump Cabinet Members Loyal to the President?



Roger Stone believes that President Trump could be removed from office by disloyal Cabinet members in a 25th Amendment move.

It is quite stunning that Trump's Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley just said that all women sharing allegations of sexual misconduct should be heard ― even if those allegations are against Trump.

Vanity Fair reports that according to Stone’s back-of-the-napkin tally, only two Cabinet members would vote against invoking the 25th Amendment, the provision by which the president can be deemed unable to serve (Congress would have to vote by a two-thirds majority to remove him permanently).

I am fairly confident that Wilbur Ross is a Trump loyalist but it is remarkable to think that there is only one other. Trump has made terrible Administration personnel decisions.

Forgetting policy for a minute, Trump should have surrounded himself with longtime cronies such as Rudy Giuliani, Chris Christie and Stone. They would have had Trump's back. He really has no one around him that he has long-term ties to, except Ross, that will back him up. And Ross is really in the hinterlands at Commerce.

  1. see how many Generals are in his Cabinet? thats not a coincidence. Trump will be a one term president. the democrats/Intelligence community will run a snowflake candidate on the women issue and the republican/MIC candidate will be someone like Nikki Hayley.

  2. Well Trump picked his own cabinet. I had hoped he would bring change, instead he has brought chaos.
