Trump gives Priebus until July 4th to clean up White House... or he is out

The president has threatened to oust his chief of staff if major changes are not made, but many are skeptical he’ll follow through.

President Donald Trump has set a deadline of July 4 for a shakeup of the White House that could include removing Reince Priebus as his chief of staff, according to two administration officials and three outside advisers familiar with the matter.

While Trump has set deadlines for staff changes before, only to let them pass without pulling the trigger, the president is under more scrutiny than ever regarding the sprawling Russia investigation, which is intensifying the pressure on his White House team.

Days after his return from his first foreign trip late last month, Trump berated Priebus in the Oval Office in front of his former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and deputy campaign manager David Bossie for the dysfunction in the White House, according to multiple sources familiar with the conversation.

Trump had been mulling bringing on Bossie as his deputy White House chief of staff and Lewandowski as a White House senior adviser with a portfolio that includes Russia, but told the two at that meeting that they would not be joining the White House until Priebus had a fair chance to clean up shop, according to the sources.

"I'm giving you until July 4," Trump said, according to a person with knowledge of the conversation.

"I don't want them to come into this mess. If I'm going to clean house, they will come in as fresh blood."

1. I am sure we will miss him when he is gone. NOT

The only way to clean up the White House is to get Trump and friends out of it. All the way down to the misshaped Huckleberry pie.

2. Why does Priebus even bother?

Trump's PR strategy is freakin abusive... I mean really, regardless of how anyone feels about Priebus, this is a fucking twisted way Trump treats the people who work for him. And remember Comey's firing... that was handled so poorly... petty, mean and demented. This Trump guy is sick in the head.

3. The best thing that can happen (for this country) is for Priebus to resign.

Like Comey, being forced out will give him a bit of an ax to grind and he might be the catalyst for some of the few establishment Republicans who are not bought and paid for by Putin to turn on Trump.

7. Lol

He made the mess but of course takes no responsibility for it and wants someone else to clean it up. Imagine that. Even if Priebus goes, the mess will stay.

8. Trumpendence Day!

I have to think the date is intentional ; he'll bring in enabler extrodinaire Cory Lewendowski who will 'free Trump' to be even more Trump ; and thereby hasten the downfall.

why can't Trump clean up the White House himself? He's the boss after all? Or, would that take away from his golfing time?
