'You have no idea how much crazy stuff we kill: Trump aides admit why theyre afraid to quit [View all]

In interviews with Axios, some aides to President Donald Trump have admitted that they are afraid to quit their White House posts over fears of what he might do without their guidance.

While there have been rumblings that conservatives are reeling more than usual after Trump’s disastrous response to the Charlottesville violence, some White House aides feel a responsibility to stick it out over fears of what Trump might do.

According to Axios, “You have no idea how much crazy stuff we kill,” was the most common refrain, with author Mike Allen noting the responses center “on the urgent importance of having smart, sane people around Trump to fight his worst impulses. If they weren’t there, they say, we would have a trade war with China, massive deportations, and a government shutdown to force construction of a Southern wall.”

More frighteningly others admit in a roundabout way, “We like the power.”
