President Donald Trump bragged about understaffing his State Department, and insisted that he is “the only one that matters.”
Trump was asked by Fox News host Laura Ingraham about not filling many of the jobs in the State Department, and replied:
So we don’t need all the people that they want. Don’t forget, I’m a business person and 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.
Lemme tell you, the one that matters is me. I am 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.
