'I'm The Only One That Matters,' Trump Says Of State Dept. Job Vacancies

President Trump says "I'm the only one that matters" in setting U.S. foreign policy, downplaying the importance of high-level jobs such as the assistant secretary of state, which is currently vacant.

"Let me tell you, the one that matters is me," Trump said in an interview that aired on Fox News Thursday night. "I'm the only one that matters, because when it comes to it, that's what the policy is going to be. You've seen that, you've seen it strongly."

The president was responding to a question from Fox's Laura Ingraham, who asked him, "Are you worried that the State Department doesn't have enough Donald Trump nominees in there to push your vision through?"

Ingraham added, "other State Departments, including Reagan's, at times, undermined his agenda. And there is a concern that the State Department currently is undermining your agenda."

Trump said, "So, we don't need all the people that they want. You know, don't forget, I'm a businessperson. I tell my people, 'Where you don't need to fill slots, don't fill them.' But we have some people that I'm not happy with their thinking process."​

Not happy.

I don’t what we’re “supposed” to think but I can tell you what this tells me.

It tells me we’ve elected a know nothing narcissist who’s inexperience and willful ignorance shows itself almost every time he opens his mouth.

And if this were not scary enough we have a sizable portion of the population who continue to support this President. I can only conclude this support is the result of stupidity or blind partisanship because it sure as hell cant be about competence or accomplishments.

Yeah, we're all stupid. Anything else?

I did not say you were all stupid. Many of you are hyper partisan. You’d rather support a bad Republican than criticize them.
There are plenty bad Republicans. They're the ones hindering Trump. McCain is the worst, McConnell, Ryan, Kasich. Satisfied now?

Those will be his famous last words at his sentencing hearing.

Another example that he is unfit to serve. When asked about the Niger ambush, he claimed that the generals were all that mattered. See a trend here ?
