“This Account … Is Based On”: Trump White House Inside Out

Read the new Politico piece about White House infighting, same as the old pieces

White House

Politico has yet another story this morning turning the inside of the White House operation out for everyone to see. The account, as Politico writes, “is based on interviews with more than two dozen Trump aides.” As incredible as some of the details are, what’s more staggering is how many people are talking to the media. Check out the rundown below and note the similar language used by reporters:

Politico: “This account of White House infighting is based on interviews with more than two dozen Trump aides, confidants and others close to his administration, all of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity. They described a distracting and toxic atmosphere, with warring power centers blaming one another for an ever-growing list of setbacks.”

The Washington Post: “This account of Trump’s work on the health-care bill — based on interviews with roughly three dozen White House aides and advisers, members of Congress, and other key figures in the debate — revealed a president in a constant state of negotiation. He remarked to friends and aides that it did not feel much different from his real estate transactions.”

The Washington Post: “This account of the administration’s tumultuous recent days is based on interviews with 17 top White House officials, members of Congress and friends of the president, many of whom requested anonymity to speak candidly.”

The New York Times:“This account of the early days of the Trump White House is based on interviews with dozens of government officials, congressional aides, former staff members and other observers of the new administration, many of whom requested anonymity.”
