Trump eyes over­haul to tackle Rus­sia cri­sis

StarMetro Vancouver - - WORLD -

Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump is con­sid­er­ing over­haul­ing his White House staff and bring­ing back top cam­paign strate­gists, frus­trated by what he views as his team’s in­abil­ity to con­tain the bur­geon­ing cri­sis in­volv­ing al­leged Rus­sian med­dling in the 2016 elec­tion.

Ex­pand­ing teams of lawyers and ex­pe­ri­enced public re­la­tions hands are be­ing re­cruited to deal with the drum­beat of new rev­e­la­tions about Moscow’s in­ter­fer­ence and pos­si­ble im­proper deal­ings with the Trump cam­paign and as­so­ci­ates. The dis­clo­sures dogged the pres­i­dent dur­ing his first trip abroad since tak­ing of­fice and threaten to over­whelm and stall the agenda for his young ad­min­is­tra­tion.
