In an attempt to “drain the swamp”, President Donald Trump has just quite sensationally fired the FBI Director, James Comey, however in typical Trump fashion he also took to Twitter to mock his arch rival Chuck Schumer when Chumer expressed with disapproval.
Now, we are all used to Donald Trump doing things without a moment’s notice and then often taking to Twitter to defend his actions or to let the masses know in 140 characters or less what he has done and why he did it, however this sacking and then mocking did raise a few eyebrows not only in the U.S but across the globe.
It has been reported and now confirmed that Trump sent Comey his sacking letter telling his in no uncertain terms that ‘You are hereby terminated and removed from office immediately.’ The main reason he fired him was that he was not impressed and was in fact shocked by the way he provided false testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee in regards to emails from Huma Abedin found on now disgraced Anthony Weiner’s computer.
Upon learning of his sacking Democrats immediately started to claim that this sacking was a way of covering up the alleged links of Trump with Russia. In a hastily arranged press briefing Schumer went on to answer his own question to Trump, that being why did it happen today.
By saying that everyone knows that the FBI has been looking into the Trump campaign had direct links and even had colluded with Russia, which he said was a very serious offence if true, and Schumer then went on to suggest that those investigations were getting too close to home for the President and that is why he sacked Comey.
Upon hearing what Schumer had said, in true Donald Trump fashion he took to Social Media, and pointed out that Schumer did not always like or support Comey, pointing out that back in November Schumer had said that he also didn’t have any confident in Comey in regards to the investigation into Hilary Clintons emails.
It is fair to say however than any President does need to be 100% confident that the FBI Director, whoever he or she may be is politically impartial and can be trusted to make unbiased decisions on a range of different matters.
As we have already learned from the very short space of time that Trump has been in power as the 45th President of the United States of America, he acts quickly on matters he feels is important and whether we like it or not that is exactly how he is going to operate into his term in office.
