Excerpt from Bloomburg.com, “The Empty Trump Administration”:
If I had to guess, however, I’d say that the failure to get his administration up and running on time isn’t a deliberate choice by Trump; he just has no idea what he’s doing, and hasn’t surrounded himself with people well-equipped to translate his impulses and his campaign commitments into a full-fledged government. This isn’t exactly a surprise. Recall that the Trump Organization has never had a large bureaucracy and that his campaign didn’t staff up the way campaigns normally do, so he doesn’t really have any relevant management experience. And, of course, he’s never demonstrated any significant knowledge in how the government actually works. The results are likely to be damaging to his presidency, and to the nation. (Emphasis mine)
From the article referenced in the excerpt:
What the Trump Organization isn’t is a complex bureaucracy with a huge budget, public accountability and legions of employees with a global footprint and a multi-faceted mission. In other words, it’s nothing like the federal government — and nothing during Trump’s tenure there or elsewhere has prepared him to take the managerial reins in Washington.
I’m hoping I’ve been wrong all along and this guy is actually going to be what the country needs … but somehow, even when I dig really, really deep, I just can’t summon up any confidence or certainty that I’m mistaken.
