Karl Rove: ‘Trump lacks the focus or self-discipline to do the basic work required of a president’
The Hill | Max Greenwood
Karl Rove, a former senior adviser to President George W. Bush, slammed President Trump on Wednesday, saying that the real estate mogul "lacks the focus or self-discipline to do the basic work required of a president."
"His chronic impulsiveness is apparently unstoppable and clearly self-defeating," Rove wrote in an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal. "Mr. Trump may have mastered the modes of communication, but not the substance, thereby sabotaging his own agenda."
Rove took particular aim at a series of tweets launched by Trump on Monday that appeared to undermine his Justice Department's argument for an executive order temporarily barring citizens of six predominantly Muslim countries from entering the U.S.
