Last week, President Trump finally announced the dismissal of his Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, through his personal Twitter account, ending months of rumors about the irremediable breakdown of their relationship.

"We are getting closer and closer to having the cabinet I want," the tycoon told the media to argue his decision to replace Tillerson with the director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Mike Pompeo.

It is true that the then-candidate Trump promised to reach Washington and "drain the swamp", but his presidency has become one of the periods with more personnel changes in the last decades of the US government, reaching the 40% milestone in comparison with their predecessors, according to a study conducted by The Brookings Institution.

“Over the course of the first year, it is not unusual for presidents to fire poor performing or ethically compromised staff members,” explains the study of the well-known Washington think tank. "While some turnover is expected and possibly beneficial, excessive turnover portends problems.”

And is that, despite his arguments, the President has managed his team in the midst of deep chaos caused by making poor choices.

Trump's presidential cabinet has undergone three major changes since its inception: the transformation of Secretary of Homeland Security John Kelly into chief of staff and his replacement with Kirstjen Nielsen; the resignation of Tom Price as responsible for Health for his "extravagant spending habits in travel", and his replacement by Alex Azar, and finally the recent dismissal of Tillerson, which foresees the rise of Mike Pompeo and his replacement with the controversial agent Gina Haspel.

But the most important movements are those that have affected the senior staff of the White House.

Between dismissals and resignations (voluntary or forced), the people closest to the president's daily life live in constant tension, reaching the point that Trump himself has admitted that, "his White House isn’t an easy place to work because he fosters an environment of conflict," according to National Public Radio (NPR).

"It's tough," Trump said. "I like conflict. I like having two people with different points of view. And I certainly have that. And then I make a decision. But I like watching it. I like seeing it. "

What the President calls "conflict", the whole world perceives as "chaos". However, for him, that is just "fake news".

"People will always come and go, and I want strong dialogue before making a final decision. I still have some people that I want to change (always seeking perfection). There is no chaos, only great energy!," Trump said on Twitter earlier this month.

But the facts speak for themselves.
