The most recent events involving Donald Trump are addressed by this EFE newswire.
It starts: the drumbeats of the impeachment process resounded on Monday, but the White House did not want to know.
Likewise, it points out that Trump’s answers to Democrats —characterized by no strategy at all, chaos, improvisation, and mistakes— may wind up hurting himself.
It adds that before the actual crisis, the government’s response has been inaccurate and “Trump growingly looks like himself.”
Michael Cornfield —Political Science professor at the George Washington University— stated to the press that “the President is drunk on power and he is now looking for a new fight.”
EFE warns it is necessary to know Trump’s basic behavior to understand this White House reaction.
Chris Edelson, Politics professor at the American University, highlights he has no strategy to face the upcoming impeachment.
And adds, “he is a gangster. He thinks he is the Big Boss in the mafia world. He is an abuser and authoritarian. And he believes Republicans will always support him no matter what.”
He takes last Tuesday’s phone conversation as an example. This chat was leaked to the press between the President and Speaker Nancy Pelosi, before announcing a potential impeachment inquiry.
“Hey, can we do something about this whistleblower complaint? Can we work something out?’ The head of the White House asked.
Pelosi´s answer was sharp: “Yes, you could tell your people to abide the law.”
Afterwards, Trump showed once again this behavior in a private meeting with diplomats in New York where he suggested they should “get rid of” the whistleblower.
As previously reported, the whistleblower is a CIA agent who worked at the White House.
In the meeting Trump said:
“Who’s the person who provided such information to the whistleblower? Because that’s close to a spy. You know what we used to do in the old days when we were smart? Right? With spies and treason, right?” Everything he said was leaked to the press.
The aforementioned professor Edelson said that Trump’s statements reminded him of the George Orwell’s novel “1984.”
And he added, “Trump said he did not do it, but he later asserted that there were no wrongdoings if he did.” The analysts said that is the “doublethinking” language.
In recent days, the New York Times released that Trump pressed in a phone conversation his Ukrainian counterpart, Vladimir Zelenski, so he could open an inquiry on former Vice President and current Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden, to undermine his presidential run for 2020.
EFE argues that such presidential formula and his attacks against the media have brought back hefty return for him. This week only, he has raised 13 million USD for his campaign.
Contrary to the common sense, his personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani has attended every debate in major television networks on daily basis.
The goal was to defend his role, but he ended up incriminating himself even more, paired with other scandals.
Giuliani, via Fox News, read the messages exchanged with diplomats to prove that Trump’s contacts with Ukraine were already known by the U.S. State Department.
According to Karen Hult, expert in the dynamics of the West Wing, Giuliani has emerged as Trump's main speaker in this crisis because the White House communications office has failed to structure a strategy and currently has an "inconsistent" relationship with the leader.
The apotheosis of this entire riot occurred on Wednesday. That day the White House mistakenly sent an email to Democratic lawmakers outlining their strategy on how Republicans should answer questions about the controversial call between Trump and Zelenski.
In the brief, entitled "What you need to know," the White House advised lawmakers to use the word "myth" to describe the conversation between the two leaders and asked the Democrats to "blame a media frenzy of false accusations."
As if that were not enough, then the White House sent another message to the Democrats asking them to please return their strategy.
Here you have the small world of that powerful nation, which proclaims itself the utmost example of democratic values of the world.
And it is now sunk in a profound crisis that rushes from chaos to an unstoppable rupture that goes deeper as days pass by.
