After one has become president or even after winning the election, the incoming president is provided daily briefings from experts in various government departments. The goal is to enable a president to have awareness of issues that might become critical to the goals of America. These briefings have nothing to do with being liberal or conservative, they are information exchanges between experts and a novice president. Donald Trump has indicated that he does not need such briefings for the following reasons”
1. “I’m a smart person.”
2. “I’ll get it when I need it.”
3. “I don’t have to be told the same things in the same words every single day for the next eight years.”
Look, Mr. Trump has already explained to the American people, “I know more than the generals” so why listen to military officers? Perhaps, just perhaps, it might make more sense if Donald Trump GAVE BRIEFINGS to those in government positions? No question, he will never use the same words day after day.
Or, he could ask Ivanka to handle the briefings.
