Chapter 9
Summary

This chapter primarily looks at some of the choices Donald Trump made as U.S. president. During the first one hundred days of his tenure, he selected General Michael Flynn to take on the role of National Security Adviser, and Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions to become the Attorney General of the United States. However, Flynn was fired twenty-four days after taking on his new role; Jeff Sessions omitted several facts during his confirmation hearing and this made it difficult for him to articulate himself effectively. James Comey was selected by Trump to assume the role of Director of the FBI, but only to be fired later.

Analysis

It is evident that Trump’s decisions were ill-advised and/or unwise. This can be seen by his moves to select both Flynn and Sessions to work in his government despite their lack of qualifications for their respective jobs. General Flynn was dishonest to Vice President Mike Pence; Sessions created problems in his confirmation hearing where he had omitted the facts in an unreasonable manner. Trump had also appointed Comey despite, similarly, having various issues from his recent past, including cases of violating FBI regulations, and numerous probes surrounding him.
