(The "Great Shrinking Administration")
From various sources like this from the Washington Post in part:
U.S. lawmakers — both Democrats and Republicans — and top national security officials in the Trump administration now offer the same advice publicly and privately, often clashing with Trump’s Twitter stream, and that advice is: “The United States remains staunchly committed to its European allies, is furious with the Kremlin about election interference, and isn’t contemplating a preemptive strike on North Korea to halt its nuclear program.”
But Trump himself engaged in a running counterpoint to that message has at times taken aim on social media even attacking NSC adviser, H. R. McMaster, saying once: “He forgot to tell the Munich Security Conference that the results of the 2016 weren’t affected by Russian interference.”
That is of course a conclusion that is not supported by all of the intelligence agencies. But, the determination to ignore Trump’s foreign-policy tweets has been bipartisan.
So, the question of whom foreign leaders should believe is simple, believe Trump himself, his tweets, or his advisers – and that has befuddled European officials all across the line, e.g., German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel confessed Saturday that he didn’t know where to look to understand America, saying: “Is it deeds? Is it words? Is it tweets?” He further stated he was not sure whether he could recognize the United States or not. And, away from the glare of television cameras, many other European diplomats and policymakers echoed those same concerns.
The answer, the diplomat said, might be found following “nuclear war,” which he feared could be provoked by Trump administration’s hawkish approach to North Korea.
Testing those lines, McMaster has now offered a starkly different view of the world from his own boss, saying that the “evidence is now incontrovertible that Russia intervened in the U.S. political system.” As far as Trump is concerned, he keeps downplaying the Russian involvement, saying that he believes the reassurances of Vladimir Putin that the Kremlin was not involved in the election, and he believes that line.
