Donald Trump and Administration are not on the same page

Irresponsible communications by Donald Trump.

North Korea is a threat to the stability of the entire world, but Donald Trump just keeps creating incendiary rhetoric rather than allow his diplomatic spokespersons to conduct quiet negotiations.

1.  Secretary of State Rex Tillerson should be the spokesperson for the administration at this time, during a critical juncture with North Korean negotiations. Instead, Donald Trump is upstaging Secretary Tillerson with every incendiary statement he creates, without consulting expert advice.  

2.  White House Chief of Staff General Kelly apparently tried to monitor Donald Trump's erratic "Tweet Storms" because, frankly, nobody approves of his misuse of this form of reactionary communications.  Nevertheless, Donald Trump has moved out of the White House (not necessarily essential, in my opinion), so he can away from the scrutiny of there watchful generals- ie., Kelly, McMaster and Mattis.  Meanwhile, Donald Trump's stupid Tweets continue, unabated.  (By the way, North Korea loves this!)
Indeed, Donald Trump's toxic "Tweet Storms" could lead our nation to the brink of "no return".

Dr. Strangelove- Donald Trump's Tweet Storms are stranger than dark fiction, but seriously more dangerous to world safety.

3.  Daily Beast reports- Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tried, in vain, to stop Donald Trump from babble mouthing during a Question & Answer session held today August 10, at his golf resort "annex", in Bedminster, New Jersey.  Guess what? Huckabee-Sanders failed. Instead, Donald Trump used the microphone opportunity to continue an incendiary verbal attack on North Korea. Moreover, Trump also berated Republican Senator Mitch McConnell, because the GOP failed health bill didn't receive the support of the American people.

Obviously, Donald Trump is clearly not communicating with his staff.  In fact, the morning after President Trump and North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un traded threats of violence, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson cautioned against fear. Rather, he assured Americans to have “no concerns.” Nevertheless, Donald Trump, on Tuesday, warned that any additional threats made by the isolated nation would be “met with fire and fury like the world has never seen.” 

According to Tillerson, that incendiary statement was simply a way of communicating directly with North Korea and with Kim: “What the president is doing is sending a strong message to North Korea in language that Kim Jong Un can understand, because he doesn’t seem to understand diplomatic language,” the secretary said. “I think the president just wanted to be clear to the North Korean regime on the U.S. unquestionable ability to defend itself, will defend itself and its allies.” Tillerson added: “Americans should sleep well at night.”

Hmmmmm - not a convincing statement from Tillerson about Donald Trump; but, honestly, it was the right response by Tillerson, directed to the American people and to our international allies.

Obviously, Donald Trump and his administrations' spokespersons are not on the same communications page.
