Former adviser to Donald Trump, Roger Stone told NBC’s Matt Lauer that there is division in Trump’s White House between people who are loyal to the president and those who are loyal to the Republican National Committee.
Lauer asked Stone about General Mike Flynn’s resignation and how it appears that there is a struggle for power within the White House.
“I do think, unfortunately, there seems to be a division between those who are loyal to the president and those who are loyal to the Republican National Committee,” Stone said.
Stone went on to say, “I generally think that in the newest administration, you should hire as many experienced, capable people who are supporters of yours and who are loyal to Donald Trump from the beginning.”
“The leaking that is coming out of the White House is a manifestation of the fact that there are people who have been hired who, very sadly, are not loyal to the president,” Stone concluded.
NBC’s Hallie Jackson followed up by asking Stone if he thought that White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus was not loyal to President Trump.
“We see a leak in the Washington Post that the president is like a clueless child. That didn’t come from Steve Bannon or Kellyanne Conway or Stephen Miller,” Stone responded,
Lauer then asked if Stone expected a staff shake-up at the White House soon.
“I think you might have some shakeout of the staff, but there are some exceptional people there as well,” Stone responded.
