Donald Trump is struggling to find new staff to work for him because everyone thinks he is “crazy”, a senior member of the US President’s Republican Party has said.
Michael Steele said potential White House employees were put off by an environment in which aides are “flying by the seat of their pants”.
“The talent pool is shrinking, because who wants to sign up for crazy?” added Mr Steele, who served as chairman of the Republican National Committee between 2009 and 2011.
“Nobody wants to step into a situation where you’re flying by the seat of your pants and don’t know whether what you just said will hold up from one news cycle to the next,” he told The Hill. “Nobody is going to be lining up for positions with that much uncertainty.”
