Dark Times: Isolated and Meanspirited Trump Has Never Been More Irresponsible and Chaotic [View all]

Dark Times: Isolated and Meanspirited Trump Has Never Been More Irresponsible and Chaotic

CBS News’ Chief Election and Campaign Correspondent Robert Costa, co-author of a book on Trump with Watergate reporter Bob Woodward, reveals what’s going on at Mar-a-Lago.

“Dark time in Trump’s inner circle,” Costa reports. He says he spoke “to several longtime friends, donors, and aides in the past 24 hours.”

“Many say he’s listening to very few people,” and is “isolated, and meanspirited about his potential rivals,” which is clear to everyone who reads the news or Trump’s Truth Social posts.

“Several of them say they’re tired of his rants and are avoiding him.”

Trump, according to longtime top advisor Jason Miller, was quite possibly going to announce his third White House run on Monday, right before Election Day. In thinly veiled terms Trump publicly suggested he was talked out of it.

Costa also quotes a Trump advisor who says: “I have never seen him more irresponsible and chaotic then he is today.”

“He seems to be in self-destruct mode,” they add.
