James Comey, former director of the FBI, told BBC Newsnight that he doesn't believe anyone can contain Donald Trump.
In the interview, Comey said there is no one around him to stop his impulsive behavior. "We have become numb to it in the US," he added. He said: “I wake up some mornings and read the President is demanding the jailing of private citizens, occasionally me.” “That is one of the reasons I’m confident the answer is there are not adequate people around him to stop impulsive behavior.”

President Trump isn’t a politician. That’s the first thing people need to understand. He speaks “to” the people and not “at” the people. Trump is “one of us,” and that is one of the main reasons he won the election.
Trump is the one person who finally called out the “fake news channels” for what they are. So many Americans were used to getting their information from the traditional news networks and believing that the information was sourced and, for the most part, true. The lights are now turned on, and people no longer take the news at face value. Trump was a wake-up call. President Trump has almost 51 million followers on Twitter. People watch for his tweets. He didn’t change how he was once he became the President, he continues to be “just one of us”.

In the political sector, you have the far left that will only vote Democrat, big government to lean on, the far right that will only vote Republican, small government for security only, and then there is the middle that can be swayed. Those are the individuals that the parties seek out during election time. They are not loyal to one side or the other because they don’t vote based on their beliefs but based on the promises offered during the election. They also vote against a particular party due to the derogatory information spewed by the “fake news”. This is why it is so dangerous to send out information that has no merit. The fact check sites have all become left leaning as well.
If Trump stayed off twitter and we went back to having the traditional news networks, would the left be happy? I genuinely don’t think so. I think they thrive on the drama and seek his tweets out to stir up controversy.
Trump wants to succeed. He’s a businessman with an ego to boot. He will do whatever he can to succeed in his presidency.
<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">James Comey Memos just out and show clearly that there was NO COLLUSION and NO OBSTRUCTION.

In the interview, Comey was asked if he disliked Trump. “I don’t dislike him; I feel sorry for him as a person.” “I dislike his actions, especially things like rule of law and truth.” Now that the memos are out, is this the pot calling the kettle?
