Hillary Clinton: Trump Will Carry Out a Staff Purge After Midterms

Hillary Clinton believes Donald Trump is plotting a brutal purge of any staff he suspects of disloyalty following this fall’s midterm elections. Speaking on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow Show, the defeated candidate for president predicted that Trump will “wholesale fire people” in the White House and become increasingly unaccountable as his presidency goes on. “If we [Democrats] don’t have one or both houses of Congress in place, he will be even more uncontrollable and unaccountable,” she said. “He will fire people in the White House, he will fire people in this administration who he thinks are crossing him, questioning him, undermining him.” Clinton said the infamous anonymous opinion piece in The New York Times about the internal White House resistance was “horrifying” and raised the likelihood that Trump will get rid of staff he feels he can’t trust.
