Insiders are predicting President Donald Trump will be gone by the end of the year as he cannot control a chaotic White House and his policies are in a shambles.
The former TV realty show star is failing to show the self-control and demeanour of his on-screen appearances now he is in the presidential hot seat.
The issue seems to be communication and revenge.
Trump is failing to set the political agenda in the US, where he promised less red tape and a better environment for business.
He won the vote from blue collar America, where the overriding fear is losing jobs to immigrants or factories relocating overseas.
Policy pledges fail
But those jobs are failing to materialise and Trump seems to lack the political clout to see his reforms through Congress.
So far, no major policy promise has been met in Congress, and his only reforms have taken effect through executive orders that need no support on the floor of the house.
The Russian thing seems to be catching up with Trump and his aides as well.
The revolving doors at the White House are spinning faster than ever with communications directors and chiefs of staff coming and going.
Now, Trump’s former ghost writer claims Trump’s presidency has hit the rocks and it’s only a matter of time before he has to vacate the Oval Office.
Presidency is over
The writer, Tony Schwartz, tweeted: “Trump is going to resign” before investigators probing alleged ties between his campaign team and Russia “leave him no choice”.
“The circle is closing at blinding speed. Trump is going to resign and declare victory before Mueller and congress leave him no choice.
“Trump’s presidency is effectively over. Would be amazed if he survives till end of the year. More likely resigns by fall, if not sooner.”
An insightful look behind the scenes at the White House in the UK’s Independent newspaper suggests Trump is out of control and liable to make public comments without consulting his advisers.
The article quoted former Trump adviser Newt Gingrich, who said: “There are parts of Trump that are impossible to manage.”
