Just two days after Donald Trump associates revealed that Trump was in a “tailspin” and “flipping out” inside the White House as a series of crisis situations largely of his own making unfolded around him, as the Inquisitr reported, a new report by the New York Times paints an equally dark and alarming portrait of Trump behind the doors of the Oval Office, saying that Trump is “convinced that people around him are fools, angry that they resist his wishes, (and) uninterested in the details of their briefings.”

The Times report based, according to reporters Peter Baker and Maggie Haberman, on “interviews with about 30 current and former administration officials, personal friends, political allies, lawmakers and congressional aides,” portrays Trump as angry at aides over what he perceives as unfairly negative coverage of him in the press, telling them, “Can you believe this? I’m doing great, but it’s a war every day.”

Trump’s reported belief that he is “doing great,” comes amid a shutdown of the government set off by his refusal to compromise on his campaign promise to build a wall along the United States-Mexico border, after conservative media pundits — including one of his earliest supporters, Ann Coulter – labeled him “gutless” for signaling a willingness to negotiate with Democrats about the wall plan, as the Inquisitr reported.
