I have concerns that Trump is literally delusional, and that the GOP and his administration are enabling Trump’s illness to avoid tantrums.
The White House budget office has instructed federal agencies to continue preparing the Trump administration’s budget proposal for the next fiscal year, according to multiple administration officials who spoke on the condition of anonymity to share details of private conversations.
The White House budget proposal is typically issued in February, which would be at least two weeks after President Trump is scheduled to depart the White House. He lost the Nov. 3 election to former vice president Joe Biden, who is set to be sworn in on Jan. 20, though Trump has refused to accept the results.
So, he fired almost all the civilians at the Pentagon, advanced a budget for February, and is still looking to fill jobs in an administration that isn’t going to exist in 3 months. Meanwhile, he’s madly raising money to pay off his campaign debts, cashing in on his “fraudulent election” narrative to suck money out of his base.
